    Some sorta contraption to give rebound to your ski stance and motion, to reduce leg fatigue. Or something.

    Steer clear of anyone with them. It's the ultimate grandpa jerry device. They have rods that are stored inside their poles that get stuck between the boot attachments and the ass attachments. It's supposed to be a shock absorption system for senior tailgunners.

    He's out on weekend release?

    Rented boots from a 'no overhead' source?

    You can hear them coming from the rattle of the ass dildos inside their ski poles. It's like some sort of geriatric skier mating call.

    ^^ there are rods that attach to the cords and back of the boots to accomplish this, they kinda poke ur ass cheeks to keep your leg position in an athletic stance. was suppossed to help with bad knees if I recall. The missing rods are stored inside your ski pole when not pokin ur butt - have to remove and attach them every run. name though escapes me.

    If you snag something, best case scenario is getting pantsed.

    Read DShacks' link, and still not sure what they are.

    From the diagram, they look like they'd be good for ice fishing.

    Ask Benny, he uses them due to being a tired old tailgunner.

    Saw some at Vail yesterday, lots of old rich guys there. Also saw what comes next - basically a giant walker on skis.
