Fischer FX 7.6 FTI

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if there is a difference between Fischer FX 7.6 FTI 2003-2004 (Silver / Grey tops witha black section at the tail PIC) and Fischer Big Stix 7.6 2003-2004 (all black I think)?

When I ordered the backcountry.com skis I got the FX not the big stix. Just curious what I have here. It seems stiffer when I flex it by hand than the 04-05 Big Stix 7.6 that I demoed earlier this season. Thanks.

dunno... maybe it's a topskin design for canada or europe? or japan? maybe it was the AT/randonee version? Rossi does similarly with the B2-3-4 for telemark/at, calling them the T2-3-4.

The 2003-04 BigStix 7.6 also is an FX 7.6 FTi -- it just depends on which bits of the topskin you want to read first.

Thanks for the response Gonzo. The only differense is the lack of the Big Stix name. I Think they may be a foriegn version as the european review sites I saw used th egrey pic while the american websites seem to use the black one with the big stix branding.

Tim, here's an example of the BigStix 8.6 sold for AT/Tele, called the "Mustang" -- different graphics, same ski.

Fischer also sells the BigStix 7.6 for AT/Tele, called the "Stingray" -- again, different graphics, same ski

Thanks Guys!!!

I finally have my new Bigstix 7.6 FTi 03-04 175s mounted with Rossignol Axium 110 bindings. I am looking forward to taking them out this coming sunday for the field test. I will post an additional review when I have time. I wanted to thank both Gonzostrike and Utah49 for their help and influencing me to demo this ski and in helping me find a sweet deal on it as well. Total cost was less than $300 total for hardware and mounting. Thanks a bunch.

enjoy 'em, Tim. I picked up a pair thanks to U49's Sierra Trading Post link, and got some P12 Ti binders from a buddy at a local shop, making the whole setup cost me about $275. killer. they rip too.

fantastic on hard snow, rip the velvet corduroy, destroy the crud. not as much float as a ski with 85mm + waist, but then you don't expect that if you're smart, and they still float better than the vast majority of 70mm waist all mountain skis (i.e. K2 Axis X/Apache X and other similar profiled skis).
