First Skitour for 2018/19, followed the good weather to the Dolomites. Was in particular interested to try out my new setup.

Thanks @Aetas, well after the first two tous I can tell you it's very importand to have the right diameter at the pole tips. :D  When I tested them at home, I used a older pole with a small diameter and it worked just fine to change the, sorry for the rest, but this is a german word, Steighilfe. Is the english word heel lifter? The pole I used on the tour has/had thicker tips and it wasen't so easy to change the Steighilfe/heel lifter and in the end the tip of one pole got broken. Performance wise I was very pleased, felt very secure and robust with lots of power. My old set up was already 10 years old and much, much heavier, had a beast of a Rahmenbindung 4 times as heavy. Considering the right pole is used the first test really surprised me in a very positive way, but the season just has started.

Many thanks for your review @marlin !

Just asked, because I consider to build up a Ski with the very tempting new Salomon S/Lab shift binding , which combines a low-tech touring pin binding with the performance of an alpine binding.

Looks indeed interesting, if the weight suits your profile/touring interest. Salomon is a great brand, I do like many of their products a lot. What are you skiing right now, what tours do have in mind?

Men, I'am so on fire regarding the upcoming ski touring season! This weekend the weather forecast is very bad, but can't wait for the next time. I know this post has no value for anyone, but had to get rid of this, sorry! Feel better now! :D ::)
