I ended up buying Fischer RC4 WC SL Race FIS Skis med flex 165cm 2014, also the Fischer RC4 Z 17 Freeflex Ski Bindings 2013 both are new old stock. A friend had a pair I was able to test and that was all it took.
Last week, I had a couple of hard crashes. Hooked four gates, went down on two. I was in the SL course but survived with only with sore elbows and a sore hip bone soooo... guess what else I bought this week and will be wearing? Yep... padded undies and elbow pads. No more 'mister macho' man! ...Us ole guys gotta be careful. All my crashes before that... I was undamaged.
The conditions were a bit rough last week, the potholes were popping up on the GS course fast. We lost one of our better younger masters to injury for the year, broken collar bone I heard.
Thanks for all your comments! I'll let you know what I think of them.
