Re: Skate ski camber and slipping on push off

Please report back your conclusions for reference's sake. I finally went out yesterday when the weather turned warmer. As I mentioned, I moved the bindings further forward to put more pressure on the camber and have noticed perhaps a slight improvement in grip. But I was hoping for more, a lot more...

Re: Skin ski, what to get?

Neuro ... do your ski shops where you live rent skis? If so, it might be a better idea to rent a pair or pairs to see what you like most.
