Fischer Love - Page 2

post #31 of 39

FWIW, I had hoped to get on some more Fischers at the Mammoth demo but Fischer didn't show up.  Maybe the rep is under the weather...I'm a little perplexed.

How is Mammoth skiing right now??

Mammoth is skiing okay but not great.  Lots of shiny spots among the great wind buff.  Watch where you go and it should be okay.

Bringing back this thread after lovin' my motive 95ti this AM in super weight heavy pow in steep trees and bumps!

 

I actually started on my mx98, as I thought the sacked out nature and lack of much sidecut would be great for this wet pow and tight conditions, (others seemed to think biggest skis and rocker, best, saw lots of 110 plus skis)

but,

 

i had two good runs, then changed to Motive 95ti, still thinking it may be too shapely and skinny for the conditions; 

and i was wrong!

 

It was way better then the 98, and I can't think of anything else I would rather have been on, every turn was just money, it was both easier to release turns and enter the next, but also more secure and solid in the arc. drift wasn't the default, but it allowed me to break it free easily if the preferred launch of the next turn required it.

 

I had second guessed it this AM, and it told me pointedly that it should be my go to ski!

 

Fischer love back.

 

Cheers,

Wade

What length 108 are you skiing? Does the ski have a similar feel as the 95ti? I'm currently on the 186 95ti and really like it, but sometimes wish I had bought the 180 for bumps and trees. I'm 6'2" and 165lbs. I tried the new Enforcer. Interesting ski, but sometimes it felt like the ski wanted to do something different than what I intended, especially in set up crud/variable snow. Looking for feedback on the 108 as this looks on paper and by holding it my next 105-108 waisted ski.

I love the 108 in soft snow, personally. Great ski, very quick, powerful, big sweet spot.  Not the softest tip, but all-around, it is tough to beat as a versatile wide ski.

Thanks, Dawg. I Assume you were on the 182? If so, did you find it hooky at all or did it ski short?i noticed long early rise in the tip which makes me believe it will ski short. If the ski likes to be driven, I'm afraid I might feel the "going over the handlebars feeling" when transitioning into some deeper snow.

No, it actually skis true to length.  VERY stable, and the big tip gives you a lot of float.  182cm is a great length for me: felt a touch longer than the 181cm BMX105 I tried right after it.  I think most people will be on the 182, and I tend to ski on the fast side of things.

Also, if anyone is interested, we have our Ranger 108 demos for sale right now, 2 days on them, mounted with Attack 13 bindings, 182cm. I skied them 3 days (1/3 day each time) and had 1 other rental.  Wide skis are not too popular with our customers....needless to say, in outstanding shape.  

 

$615 takes them.
