2004 Fischer Big Stix FX 8.6 skis.

Length: 180cm. Sidecut specs: 120-86-107mm. Turn Radius: 26m.

Bindings: Tyrolia Railflex RD 12

The bases, edges and bindings are in perfect shape, with only about 7 days on them. I am selling them because they are too demanding for my skiing style. These are a “shaped” ski that want to carve an arc. I’m used to skidding my turns.

Pictures of the skis are posted on my website:

The hi-tech bindings are Tyrolia Railflex RD12's. They are designed to "free flex" on rails, so the ski can flex and carve a more perfect arc. They can be adjusted to any size boot at any time by just sliding the bindings off the rail, adjusting the bindings to the boots, then sliding them back onto the rail. This means that you will not have to remount the bindings. In fact, since it only takes about 5 minutes to do, you can let your buddy try out your skis at any time. Also, once set, your position can be adjusted backwards or forwards about an inch for changing snow conditions by loosening one screw. Din settings are from 3.5-12.

These current model year skis are selling right now on retail racks at full retail price of $750. The bindings sell for $300.

Here's a review of the ski: The Fischer Big Stix FX 8.6 pushes the technological boundaries of ski construction to create one of the lightest, most stable, powerful fat skis ever made. Fischer drew on its experience with materials used in aircraft, race car, and road bike construction to create a revolutionary carbon fiber chassis for the new FX 8.6 and FX 7.6 [FIS0004] alpine skis. The new core produces a more consistent flex, a longer life to the rebound of the ski, and a stronger, more durable construction—all without sacrificing the wood core stability Fischer has always been known for. With one of the most versatile fat shapes around, the FX 8.6 floats confidently in powder and is narrow and stiff enough to rule the hardpack as well. Its generous sidecut hooks up for perfect arcs, but won’t get twitchy if you need to let ‘em run on a 50-mph straightline runout.

Bottom Line: Advanced to expert Western skiers need look no further for a powerful, versatile, everyday ski.

These skis won a Ski Press Best Buy Award as a Freeride Super Fat ski. You can view the tester's comments on Fischer's website:
