If you expect that to be a problem, a trick is to use green or blue klister in a thin layer first, then add warmer klister on top of that, but leave about 1 cm (1/2 inch) of the harder klister exposed at the rearward end to trap any moving soft klister.

Heh, you need klister to trap klister, honey doesn't work nearly as well ;)

Nice!

We were taught to sand the kick zone, then leave about 3/4 of an inch exposed at the heel end (apply tape to ends of klister zone, sand lengthwise, move tape at heel ahead 3/4" towards tip, apply klister T H I N, remove tape. Taping isn't necessary.)

What would be a good binding/boot system for these skis? I picked up 2 sets.

Probably NN75 or NNN-BC.
