Old thread but I'll add a ski for posterity. Fischer addicts circa 2008 are a strong buy in the used market, and I would guess they haven't changed much since so a good new ski as well. The ski is symmetrical center mount twin tip, torsionally stiff and sandwich sidewall construction that is indestructible. Typical fischer ski...they know how to make race skis...even if its a twin tip. This ski rips groomers if you have a strong boot to drive it, and a boot with good forward flex will allow for fun in bumps as well. Fast GS turns and sharp edges will spring you into the next turn with force...and punish you if you get lazy in the back seat. i
The park...well, good for jib punishment with the beefy sidewalls, but more suitable for all mountain duties. It will do well enough in the park with the right boot as long as its just jumps and jibs. Skis same forward and back. Solid all around ski for upper intermediate to expert. Minor downside: topsheet gets wacked, it will peel. But I'll take the performance over aesthetics. Still have it in the quiver, will keep it til it is destroyed. Perfect east coast ski due to its stiffness and ability to carve hardpack with ease. A tank in crud. Recommended.
