great ski in general. ive never skied on a fischer ski so i didnt know what to expect in terms of quality and performance, but im thoroughly satisfied.
after about 8 days on them im very pleased by how well they ski. theyre soft enough in the right spots for park, and when charging down steeps they still have some pop out of turns and great edge control. Having a sidewall construction adds some torsional stiffness to the ski, so ice and hard pack are no sweat.
the ski itself, before mounted, was pretty light, but typical for an all mountain symmetrical twin. graphically i liked the older white graphic, from 2 years ago i believe. The tails have a kind of silly imprint of some sort of plane ticket or something...which doesnt bother me too much being behind me all the time, but its kind of a strange thing. its pretty cool how there are a few clear ovals in the top sheet where you can see the wood core, though.
great ski for the price i paid. its worth it.
I have the addicts in 172 cm. Last year i rode volkl walls that were 177cm, about an inch taller than me at 5'9". The length feels great, its so much easier to spin in general.
perfect flex for me, in particular, at 180 lbs. great ski in the park, no questions asked. landing switch feels so comfortable with a softer nose and tail. there seems to be a layer of metal only underfoot giving the ski a bit of stiffness for more stable carving.
so far i havent had any delam or edge issues. im a rail fanatic and take park runs like a fiend, but not a lot of wear on the bases or edges. there are a couple small chips in the top sheet, but so far so good.
