I wouldn't mind a pair of similar skis. I do racing still (Slalom and GS mainly) but instruct & coach more now.
I have been looking around and the Atomic GS12 PB look like a good option.
Can anyone recommend them or any other suitable skis?
Thanks any advice would help!
Happy New Year!
Fischer "RC4" skis are the designation of its entire race line. Which one do you have? For instructing the suggestion to use a Fischer RX series ski or similar from another brand seems to make sense.
Skis in Fischer's line for recreational racing include,
-The RC4 WC RC, one of the most consistently popular non FIS spec GS race skis. Radius 16m at 175 cm.
-The RC4 WC SC, which is a FIS compliant recreational league SL race ski.
-The RC4 Progressor- has a dual radius sidecut that enters the turn like an SL ski and exits like a GS. It has a somewhat wider platform than the other RC4 skis, making it more versatile off the race course. It's sort of a top of the line combi ski.
Fischer RC4 GS and the Fischer RC4 SL are Fischer's full bore FIS compliant race skis The RC4 GS ski is likely not the best choice for many recreational race leagues because of its longer FIS spec turn radius. The RC4 SL, is a great slalom race ski but likely wouldn't be much fun for all-day instructing.
There are a lot of other good race skis out there, as well. Fischer's race skis are at least as good, if not better, than any other race ski you can buy off the rack at a ski shop. It's more a question of whether you like the "feel" of a particular brand/model.
Good luck with your search.
