2004 Fischer big stix 86, unbelievable ride....10x better looking than last years, if you like to ski, and dont care about owning the name (aka armada or k2...fuck that shit) ride a quality race bred pow pow ski
Im gonna hafta retract my previous statement, the 2004's are made of composite/carbon material. I know there are heated debates regarding foam/wood/composite cores, however, the BigStix's used to be a wood core ski, of which they were touted a stable cadillac cruise. The new carbon core skis are lighter weight, hence they get tossed around a lil bit more. If you want a pow ski, step it up to the 10.6s, otherwise the 8.6s will get tossed around in the chop/crud. But if you can find a pair of 2002s, snatch em up quick if your looking for a west coast crud buster.
the NT's are the shit unless you only ride park and then you might want to consider something else just because their pop is lacking compared to say...the 1080. but they are fairly wide and since they are made by fischer (racing company) they are stiffer than most twins
