I have just ordered some of next years stockli laser gs skis but came across a pair of the fischers at a great price . I cant really demo the fischers this late but can anyone who has been on both give me any insight .
I have 01-02 Stocklis in a 186. Little brothers have race stock Fisches in 183s from both 01-02 and 02-03-same sole length woohoo! Stocklis are a better ski, but you have to be on them constantly, even if you weigh 200+ like me. Smoother turn initiation, more predictable flex, comparable power. Fischers are snappier, easier to turn, but don't carry speed from turn to turn as well as the Stocklis. Bottom line-fischer's better for small GS, but Stocklis can ride with the big dogs. If you're strong enough to handle them in a small GS, don't worry about picking up the Fischers too, although that would be fun.
