What about Fischer <PURE RF> and Fischer <Exhale RF>? Please advice :)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi there, 

 

I came across an offer (from a Swiss website). These two models ae 40% off, inclusing bindings. I am looking to buy a pair of ski, but would like to keep the cost down. Consider I finished the alpine school when I was young, and used to go skiing regularly until I was about 23. Then I stopped for 6/7 years. Now I'm 30, moved to Switzerland, and really can't stay away from slopes. 

 

Can you advice whether these are worth buying, and which model is better, please? 

 

Any comment very much appreciated

Thanks :)

The second thread with the same question was deleted.  As regards your question, the skis are appropriate intermediate models for groomed snow conditions.  If you can provide more personal information regarding your skiing (where you ski, type of terrain, piste or off-piste, and general abilities) I'm sure we can give you more useful feedback.

Hello! thanks a lot. 

 

so back then I used to ski in the italian side of the alps. Now I am going to be mostly in Switzerland. 

I'd say I'll go for piste, rather than off-piste, on a weekend basis (I do live there, so its not a matter of a one-week-per-year thing). 

 

I am confortable on up to long red slopes, I think I need some practice to get back in shape for black ones. 

However, I should say I used to ski with the old style skis, not with carving. Dont know if this helps. 

 

I'm 173cm tall, big built but normal weight. 

 

General abilities: am not sure how youd defined them, but I was pretty good back then. As I said, I had finished the old alpine school (silver and golden stars) by the age of 16...

 

Thanks a lot for your help

Paging @Trekchick 

I think she can be more helpful with the ladies ski models.  Welcome to Epicski

Thanks again, 

 

Im open to any sort of advice, really. It doesnt need to be one of these pairs of fischer. 

Problem only is Switzerland is expensive and I just moved, so I am unsure about where to buy (other than simply what to buy). 

 

Thanks

Best 

Federica

Thanks for the Page Cirque....

 

I'm sad to say that I haven't skied on either of those skis.  However, I've skied some in that line up and find that they are really easy to ski.  No real surprises, just nice and easy to ski.

Of those I've skied the Rossignol Temptations and the Volkl Estrella. 

 

The temptations are both very good for front side and have enough umph to dabble in the crud on the edges, even go off piste a bit.  

The Estrella strong on groomers and has a bit softer tip with a very forgiving tail.
