FS or Trade: 2007 Fischer RX8 170cm- Skied 5 days

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Bought these from Dawgcatching (scott) at then end of the 2006-2007 season and skied them about 5 times last winter. Was torn between the 170 and 175 and ended up getting the 170. I now wish I had gone 175 for more stability at speed and a bit longer turn radius. Hindsight is 20-20 I guess.

Anyone buy to long and want to trade me for some 175 RX8's or a similar frontside carver? Skis are in great shape and were hand tuned by me. Some minor cosmetic scratches on topsheets and bases, but nothing major. Includes integrated FX12 Railflex binding.

I'd also consider selling these for $350 plus shipping. Skis are the 2007 orange and black version of the RX8.

I'll post some pictures later.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike, those look great, but I find it hard to believe you'd see a dramatic difference in exact same ski just 5cm longer. I have RX8 in 175 which sometimes (in bumps) feel a bit long for me, but they are two years older than yours and don't compare due to a lot more mileage.
Were you using them on this day, can't tell: http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=67362

Jim:

Yep, I was using them that day at Blue Knob. I like them a lot, but just feel they are a bit squirrely at speed and think I'd like and extra 5cm. I'd probably buy a 180 if they made one!

You headed up this way at all? I'll be at Hidden Valley this Sunday and then a mix of Hidden Valley, 7-Springs and Blue Knob the rest of the winter. Trying for a trip to Utah in early '09 also.

That would be great if we can meet up at Blue Knob again. I'll make it if at all possible. Hopefully we'll get some more snow this winter to make the whole mountain skiable.
