More importantly, what size? I'm Male, 6ft tall, about 175-180lbs. I'm fairly agressive but still working on my technique.
Thanks for the help.
A 2008 Fischer RC4 WC SC?
I'm about the same weight and 5' 11". I have the '05-'06 Fischer WC SC @ 160cm and at 165cm. I can see no reason to go longer than 165cm in a SL type ski at your height and weight. If you like the Fischer feel, you might look at the Fischer RX-8 Fire which you will very likely find more forgiving than the RC4 WC SC and a tad more versatile. It will work very well in in a somewhat longer 170cm length. There are a ton of RX-8 reviews and comments that have been posted here on the RX-8.
For a more GS type feel, there is the Fischer RC4 WC RC 16m@ 175, or the new Fischer Progresser, which is a wider bodied version of the RC4 WC RC.
Fischer has the new "Heat" and 'Fire" lines this season (of which the RX-8 is the only holdover).http://www.fischerskis.com/en/
I'm partial toward Fischer skis but wish you luck with whatever you decide.
