Wtb: tele skis
I think i found a neat setup locally, but i want to check out what else is out there. I need skis, bindings, and boots(size ten). I've never tele skied before so I'd appreciate advice on size and gear type. I'm about 5 10" and 130-140 pounds. Oh yeah, cheap is good Thanks
check out telemarktips.com in their buy/sell/trade forum. they'd have a lot of cheep gear in there. and since you're pretty average size i'm sure you'll find someone selling something you need.
and here's the thing with skis... you don't need tele specific. any ski you like skiing alpine on will be fine for tele. you should really be thinking about mounting position. true center won't quite work, because when you go to drop a knee you loose all your tip, and if you're in powder, you'll just submarine. go a few cent. back when mounting. you'll really figure that part out on your own feel though.
as for bindings. stay away from G3. They're loose and you'll eat shit a lot if you're used to alpine. i'd really recomend bomber (expensive) hammer head (mid range) or the rottefella cobra r8 or the blackdiamond o1.
as for boots, you've gotta pick what fits your foot. garmont fits the widest range, but if you've got narrow feet i'd say go for a scarpa (it fits close to a lange) crispi is good too.
hope that helps.
first off idk why anyone would want to telle its kind of weird and not as all mountain as say the seth or most twins
second off since ur new it looks like u dont know much about this site well this isnt a telle site this is a freeskiing site going threw the park and all or big kickers in the powder. Im pretty sure u are very lucky to even get one person who knows anything about telle on this site since its the person above
my steeze aint for the taking
