2009 Fischer RC4 WC SC Ski


Pros: Nastar etc=ownage

Cons: 40+mph, pretty unstable

Everything is great except high speeds.  I actually have the 08's, which ironically, are now the mens FIS reg SL ski.


Pros: Good Grip for hard small turns and stable at speed

Cons: There are better skis for deep snow (say 8" +)

I really enjoy this ski for carving turns on hard snow.   It is very stable no matter how fast you ski it, and has a very strong grip.  It is also very quick edge to edge and will turn on a dime when you want it to.  Reviews say it won't make long turns, but that's not quite true.  It has a 13 m side cut, and it will not cut a clean turn at a radius greater than that, but it will still turn where you want it to when making larger turns at greater speeds without drama; it just doesn't feel as good making a big turn as a ski with a larger turn radius.  The ski has a light feel to it, and lets you know what's going on at the ski-snow interface.  It doesn't have the reasuring solid feel of some other skis like atomics I've tried in the same performance range, but if you trust it it will hold up just as well.  If you only weigh 170 lbs, you might want something a little softer for moguls.  If you hook a tip at ridiculous speed in deeper crud you could be in trouble, but that goes for any 13-m radius ski.  (Guessing at the Purchase date in the ratings)
