It's basically a firm snow carver; it's the 2008 version of the Fischer RX8 which has been in production for a few prior seasons. Dimensions: 116-65-98, 14m radius. Versatile and less demanding than a race slalom. There's been a lot of discussion of it on this board which you can find via the search function.

Here's what the Peter Keelty ski review site had to say:
"One of the highest scoring skis we have seen and a player for Ski of the Year. Extremely quick, silky smooth, solid and stable and even forgiving. These sentiments appeared on a number of cards and tell the story: "Fun carver, nice light feel, refreshing change from over damp heavy carving skis. Simple, fun—I'm going to get a pair!" No need to lament the passing of the legendary RX8 . . ."
As far as I've read there's not much difference from prior RX8 -- just minor tweaks and improvements.
