Re: Fischer Excursion 88 vs Outtabounds - Newb

Welcome Zamdrang! Let us see whether I can help you more than confuse you! I live in a mountainous area of N Ca What are the snow conditions like? I'm ready to buy my own ski and initially planned on the Excursion 88 being that I've enjoyed the Outtabounds. My biggest complaint is how much slip I ge...

Not sure if I would want a rounder, softer flex though...

An 88 with a softer, rounder flex is essentially a Madshus Epoch/Karhu XCD 10th MTN isn't it?

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Åsnes Ingstad BC

boby13- Thank you again for the videos! The snow, terrain and forest-cover conditions you are skiing in are essentially identical to my local, backyard backcountry skiing. I don't know what your experience and skill level is- and it is difficult to tell too much from a first-person perspective... My...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88

The ingstad's have a lower camber than my 88's but they have a real wax pocket that is hard to compress. This is very true isn't it? Very cool design for a BC-XC ski! But yes, 195 or even 185 ingstad would be real fun downhill, I got the 205 because I wanted some long waxable deep snow cruisers. I ...

Re: Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88

Nice review ! The 88's have been my go to skis for the past 2 seasons and I really like them. I only wish they would come with waxable base option. I hear you! I am grip-waxing the entire base of this ski. I am using hard kick wax on cold snow and then the scales keep me from needing soft kick wax....

Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88

Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Excursion 88 Easy-Skin (To do this review justice- please read my review on the Traverse 78 first!) This is a superb backcountry-cross-country ski. With a XC focus- this ski offers a simply amazing range of performance. It- like the Traverse 78- performs well as a XC s...

Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Traverse 78

Ski Review: 2018-2019 Fischer Traverse 78 Easy-Skin Light. Solid. Stable. This ski in all honesty is an excellent off-track cross-country ski. However, for someone like me, it is just- well- a bit boring… Let me explain: Even at 199cm, it is not super-fast. My E99 and my Gamme 54 are much faster XC...

Re: Asnes Falketind 62 versus Rabb 68

The amount of fun I have doing endless laps with my FT62 this winter is just ridiculous.
How to turn even 30m of vertical into downhill fun with a XC boot = FT62.
