Hi All, I'm new to the forum but not to skiing. Ok, haven't skied in a while and not a pro either. I'd say my skill level is intermediate but I'm not afraid to try anything new. I've already went skiing a few times this year and fell right back into the grove of things rather quickly. Been able to take the single blacks without much of an issue (Pocono's in PA black). But then again I'm not sure it's because I'm just crazy and don't know what I'm doing and just going with the flow of things.
I just got back from a ski shop that has a 2004-2005 Fischer RX6 w/ the Railflex 10 bindings. They had it for $299 but since there was some cosmetic damage on the top, I got it down to $279. I also looked at the Tecnica Mega 10 Ski boots running for $199. Now, I've searched all over the web and this forum over the past few days and read many reviews and first hand experiences about the RX6. I'm quite excited about it. So I'm fairly confident that it'll be a good pair of skis to learn, progress my skills, and grow into.
But of course, i'd like to get some opinions out there before I commit. I'm 5'6", 150lbs, and pretty atheletic. I'm looking to be able to be able to be aggressive when I want to but not something that'll throw me into the snow if I make a mistake. Does the Heat series replace the old RX series? I've tried to search what would the equivalent of the rx6 is but not much came up. Cool heat = RX6 maybe?
Any opinion, good or/and bad welcome!
