Looking for that rare smart, technical savvy skier/technician/pro for some comments!
First some background info.
I know skis. I know about ski construction, ski design, ski flex and yes even how to use a formula to determine a ski's radius "carve turn" ! Most of the time I know what ski can do ( by the figures) and what is does on snow! This one issues has me staying up late late at night!
My question is about two skis from same company; Fischer.
I have two skis here in my tuning shop, The World Cup SC with 112- 69- 103 R=12 and
the World Cup SC PRO 118- 66- 99 R=13
Tried to find on net comparative info on these two. Not marketing buzz! No luck
Tried to get marketing guys from Fischer from my country to tell me difference and reason for those two skis since they seem to overlap in performance characteristics. No luck
Tried to talk to technical director of Fischer importer from my country and after 15 minutes saw he was not clued in!
Finally sent a email to the head office ( specifically to the race technicians since I have contacts there). No luck. They all know the race skis tuned for the "racers" but as far as these two comparatively,,,,,,,
Can not talk to ski designers/engineers from Fischer. "Verbotten"
Looking at the above figures I can make some "estimates" of projected performance curves.
Yes I skied these two for one month at Hood, but first I want some "wiser" technical skier to tell me what the comparative issues are!
Yes I am aware of the FIS "standards" for skis!
One more point ( which again Fischer reps can not answer) !
On the first unit the SC,,,there is a "plastic looking" white /black plate.
On the second unit,,the SC PRO there is a alu flowflex plate which is far superior in performance parameters!
I will tell you what I have determined later, once the "savvy" skier/technicians help me!
Please "savvy" skier/technicians help me with my sleepless nights!
