    Unless you have a Fastenal or Grainger store nearby, it's not likely you'll find these screws locally. They're not the cheapest, but you can't beat McMaster-Carr for fast shipping and having...

    It's unlikely you would notice much if any difference. There's nothing wrong with the old composite risers, they might even be a bit lighter weight than the newer aluminum models. Some have...

    Yes, exactly. RC's are definitely softer than XL's and -despite the additional length- have significantly less support fore and aft. In return, they're super nimble like a 90 but with the float of...

    It's hard to say, everyone's a little different, but the whole cat-skiing thing sounds a little intimidating, at least to me. Personally, I'd have to reach for the RC's. The XL's are great, but in...

    What bindings are you using? If you have Spruce Risers, then any of the longboards (Sherpas, etc.) are a great option. If you have only nonrelease, then personally I would pick a pair of Blunt XL's...

    I agree with Fun Machine here...it looks like the shape, and not necessarily the height of your boot toes might be the issue. For a frame of reference, I snapped my own boots into a pair of...

    Certain boots have an adjustable lean feature and/or a "walk mode". Fans of an upright stance simply ski in these while in "walk mode". Full tilt boots have a little shim in the upper heel that you...

    Tim's step-in nonrelease setup is so cool, it's great to see others giving it a try. I've thought for a long time it would be wildly popular if more folks would just give it a chance, especially...

    You'd think Mac or Snap-on would make such a thing, but apparently no one in the world makes a stubby #3 phillips driver. Using a common #2 phillips driver on #3 screws will booger the heads every...

    Hey Chad---

    Your softboot set-up is a deal and a half for someone, those should go quick.

    Which rear-entry boots did you get? The Alpinas from Level Nine, or something else?

    Jack, as you know I really like the BXL ridden with a nonrelease softboot set up. But on our chunky glaze ice here at home I don't like them at all when set back, they get unstable and weird. Maybe...
