Raab is to Alpine for my way thinking.....The ft 62 while on the wide side could be a deep snow ski....Most of my skis are skinny but do have a set of old time Noodles that are decent for bottomless snow....But.....cruising and going up hill is daunting.....If powder is consolidated hopefully the 109's will suffice...Oh...just remembered the rebounds have a metal extended edge up front....Gotta file that off and See if they make it another year. Reverse the pins.... ft could be my Alpine ski if I ever go to an Alpine area again....BC is just to good....TM

And thanks NT for the information....Will try to get Telekid's phone and see what is what....I had a set of Fischer Boundless with a tip if 96....At 179 way to short which then became telekid's skis.....However the 188 FT sounds just about right...TM

Woods, that is a great price on the FT 62.

Teleman, the price that Woods posted above is a really good price. If it's beyond your budget, maybe you could find a pair of those Fischer 88's guys were posting end of the season last year? They were getting them I 199 or 200cm. Not exactly the same, but you gotta have money for beer after a good ski!
