...you've gotten a lot of good input re what's the slalom ski with the most snap, and you want to believe what you want to believe, which is that the Fischer SC is gonna do it for you. It might, it might not, but it does not have the basic construction, dimensions, and sidecut that a race SL ski does. It is wider, softer, and generally much more foregiving than the Fischer WC SL. I don't believe it's ever going to give the kind of snap a race SL ski will.
But here's the real question...we're all arguing about what's the SL ski with the most snap, and let's pretend for a second that we all agree on an answer...wuddia gonna do
with it? If I'm looking at a ski for whatever purpose, "snap" is one aspect, but it's not the only one. As you've heard from the other posters, Fischer SLs generally have a lot of snap. I've skied on Fischers...in fact, I've skied on everything. A few years back, I skied on Fischers for Masters SL, but I went back to Atomics for SL because they had as much snap but were a lot easier to get into and out of the turn...and they were just as damp, which is something Fischers are famous for. So my advice is...just go buy something and ski on it. You've already decided that Fischer WCs will work perfectly for you...fine, go get a pair, and go ski
