Moving on...Fischer RC4 Superior?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi all,

I cant seem to find any reviews on the Fischer RC4 Superior.

There are 2 that I'm interested in

RC4 Superior w/Racetrack Binding

RC4 Superior C-Line w/Flowflex Tune.It

 

I'm currently on RC4 Race SC Pro (2010 model, I think). I love how these skis are performance enough to rip around on and make 'nice turns', but how they're not totally race orientated so they're easy to teach on from beginner level to advanced. And that's what I want in my new pair of skis aswell. However they are now too soft for my ability and I want something to progress on. I'm a csia lv3 looking to train up toward the Lv4.

I tried the RC4 worldcup sc's a few times. Great ski, I can perform on them well, but you have to be on your game 100 % of the time which for teaching is not ideal. Too stiff and specialized for what I want. The flow flex bindings are stunning however and I'm completely sold on them already.

 

A trainer recommended the Superiors. He used to ski on my current skis, and traded them in for the superiors and said that I should look into doing the same. I trust his advice, he is however a rep for fischer. So what out there is similar? volkls? Heads? Blizzards? I've heard Blizzards are really good. Tried some Ogasakas end of last season and was blown away by how much edge hold they had.

 

Weight matters. I'm pretty light, 5'9.5'' , 150lbs.

I believe that the Fischer RC4 Superior was only offered in Europe.

I checked my Fischer US Books and can't find it anywhere. 

 

Here is one link I found for a ski test.

Shared a chair at Sun Valley w/ a guy who had 'em. Said his pal who is in the industry highly recommended them and so he made the deal. Did not get much more out of him than he liked them on the hard hard snow at SV this past weekend. 

 

Anybody been on them? 72 underfoot. Fischer Superior Pro. Were in Europe, here now. Successor to the Progressor.

Bump, in case OP is still curious about them. I have them. They are fantastic. Rock solid edge grip in hard conditions. They're supremely quick and confidence-inspiring. Not at all hooky at all in the tip and tail. Edge release (when you want it), is predictable and even, and easy to manipulate in the exactly the way you want. This makes them surprisingly adept at handling un-groomed conditions confidently, considering their race-oriented nature.  I know this is a very individual thing, but they really feel like part of the skier rather than a separate aparatus. 

 

(I am not a rep for Fischer, I just really like these skis).

I demoed the Fischer RC and Head Supershape Rally earlier this season.  Both could be described as recreational skis built on race ski technology.  I liked the Head better.
