I'm a Belgian racer, and it's time for me to get a new pair of FIS Slalom skis.
Since I started racing about 7 years ago I've always been using Fischer skis. I always felt good with that brand, so when I needed new skis I just bought Fischer, without looking at other brands. However, now I don't want to limit my choice even though I'm still very happy about my Fischer skis.
I also still want to use my old pair of Fischer Slalom skis as well as a pair from 2 years ago for training, but I'm just looking for a new race ski. Do you guys think it's a good idea to train with Fischer for instance, and do races with Rossignol, Dynastar, Atomic, Völkl, Salomon, or any other brand?
A guy from the club also told me that some brands are made totally different than other ones (other internal structure, materials, etc.) even if they're all made for Slalom (FIS) and should actually do the same thing... If it's true what he told me, what brands would be similar or identical to Fischer, and which ones would feel quite different?
Can anyone give me some advice about this?
Thanks and sorry for my non-native English :-D.
