I had a pair of FMs in the 1980-81 season.  They were the middle tier of freestyle/mogul skis between the CMs, which were pretty nice, and the EMs that were like a recreational freestyle model.  The FMs were kind of a disappointing from a durability standpoint.  The edges pulled out fairly easily and the topsheets cracked and separated all over the place. 

 

In spite if all that I really enjoyed mine for a season, but they were toast at that point.   Full disclosure, I was a real lightweight in high school when I had them so that is probably why mine didn't blow apart like many friends' FMs did.

The bindings are probably still skiable, but not backed by any ski shop.  I'd ski them but no ski shop will touch them even to adjust them for your weight.

I had a pair too. Crap skis. While the biding might be an all metal version of the N77, being a toe mount forward brake..I would hesitate taking them on snow. Now, it they were the rare white window N77, they might be worth as much as a medium no name Latte.
