I just found out that I have an opportunity to ski Fischer this year. I want to get a pair of Motive 95s and it looks like I can have one other pair of Fischers to round out the quiver. I am leaning towards a Big Stix or Progressor model. In the Big Stix it looks like the 110 would be the likely candidate as I don't see myself getting too much use out of the 122. Does anyone here have experience with Fischer skis? It has been many years since I last owned a pair and a few years since my last Fischer demo. At that time I didn't like the Wateas as much as the other offerings in it's class. The buzz I'm hearing on the Motive 95 is that it's one of the best skis to come out in a long time. There isn't too much info available on it, but my contact person can't stop talking about it.
I currently have a lot of skis. Many of them are still very good. Here is a list of whats out in my garage right now.
Rossi Soul7 188
Rossi E88 178
Rossi E98 180
Rossi S7 188
Head WC SL 165 race stock built for Bode acquired from BP
Volkl Gotoma 176 non rockered
Volkl Sumo 176 w Duke binding & skins
Nordica Jet Fuel 170
Dynastar Contact Limited 172
Atomic Yanak (tele daddy) 174 w Fritzie binding & skins
I also have some tele skis
Atomic Tele Daddy 174 w G3s & Skins
Line Blend 178 w Hammerheads
I also have a few older alpine and tele skis that aren't worth listing.
My thought is that the Big Stix could replace the Soul7 and S7 and the Motive 95 could replace the E98 and E88. I don't think I need a Progressor because of the E88 and the Heads. I have given some thought to remounting the E88s with a Hammerhead and using them as a tele ski. I really like the E88s, but they have well over 100 days of hard skiing on them and I could use a fresher pair for alpine. I have also thought about remounting the Soul7s with a tech binding for a lighter touring set-up. I don't currently have a tech boot, but that could change.
I'm 51 yo, 5'10", 175 lbs, and ski over 100 days/year at JHMR.
Thanks for your input into my first world "problem".
Also... Anyone coming for the gathering is welcome to try/buy some of my older skis. The prices would be pretty good.
