Level 9 has Fischer Ranger 96 Ti on sale for $249 until Monday morning. Does anyone have an opinion of them versus the Salomon Q-98 they have for $299 as an all-round, one ski quiver, except for deeper powder days?

If I recall, we skied together, right? You were on some AC4's or AC40's? If so, The Q98 won't be enough ski for you and I don't recall skiing the Ranger 96Ti so I can't give you an opinion there. Maybe go back to the drawing board.

Phil, Thanks for your input. We skied together at both Tahoe and Mammoth during 2014 Gathering that included both places and also skied together at Northstar in December 2014 when the season was still promising. I have lightly used, previous year's model Rossi Super 7s for powder days and for cat-skiing trip.

 

My other skis are all mostly used up. I've mostly been skiing Salomon Sandstorms (180 cm, no rocker, 99-waist, light which I like for skiing, riding lifts and carrying). They are almost trash from early May powder skiing at Mammoth. With a couple of big base welds, I could use them a little more, but they are at the end of their life.

 

The Fischer Rangers are supposed to be follow-up to Watea 94 which I demoed at Gathering at Mt Rose and liked, but I question how the longer radius (22 m at 178 cm- I'd get 186 cm) than what I've been skiing will work in chutes. Some reviewers said OK, but not great on groomers. What do you think about the 2015 Tyrolia Attack 13 for someone who rarely loses a ski with bindings set at 6.5-7?

The Attack 13 is a great choice of a binding.

Ive got those mounted to Moment Underworld and Line Prophet 92.  Like that binding a lot. 

 

As for the Ranger, check out dawgcatching's reviews. Looks like a great one ski quiver. Considered it myself, but just don't need it..

I went ahead and ordered the Rangers with the Attack 13 as I don't want to be stuck with only a choice of skiing worn-out skis or my powder skis (which actually ski OK on groomers) in November or December. Somehow I had a $15 credit at Level 9 so my cost was $373 with mounted bindings, which is less than the price of many previous years (or decades or 2nds) at STP without bindings. Still that's more than my Salomons cost me as they were new, two years old stock when I bought them with binding for $224. But that was after $200 gift certificate for local shop in San Jose that I received as a retirement gift.

Start Haus has Nordica Nrgy 100s up for $699 and you can still use the SKI50 coupon and knock them down to $350.  That ski is selling for $699 everywhere else so this is a steal to the point I wonder if hey will honor it.  Someone go for it!

The coupon is working for a few other 2015 skis they have up too.

Just picked up a pair of these from an auction site.   2013 Atomic Elyian 168cm gently used $215 with bindings.

Heads up on Campsaver deals.  Lots of Reps samples for Mammut for men and women.  Use "Twenty20" on anything in the outlet section for 20% off the already discounted rates.  I just scored a sweet Rab NanoShell for over 50% off using the Active Junky link.
