Fischer Motive 76 or 80 - 175 or 182?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hello-


Fairly advanced skier but only get out a couple times a year now (mainly out west).  Need some new skis and have a decent buy on the Fischer Motive 76 or 80s.

 

Looking for any advice on either the 76 or 80 and then the length (175 or 182).

 

I am 6'1" - 180 lbs, tend to ski mostly steep groomers, but do ski a decent bit of moguls and even some trails.  Love a powder day, but can't afford to buy skis just for powder.


Any advice would be greatly appreciate.  Thanks in advance-

Dave

I ski the 2013 Motive 76s and I'd say its a nice ski for harder snow and carving.  It is not awesome in crud or softer conditions.  If I had to do it over I'd probably do with the 80 but since I'm skiing normally on hard snow the 76 meets my needs.  I recently took it out to Big Sky and if faired well but I did have issues with crud/skied out powder.  This ski really requires you to be out on top of it to cut through that kind of snow.

I like the 80 for all-around performance.  Not much experience on the 76.   At your size, I would go 182.  I ski the 175, and am several inches shorter and 25lbs lighter.
