Be honest! What is your edelweiss look like?

On the left (green) is the early 80's E99, 210cm. Mismatched serial numbers. The graphics match up with Fischer downhill skis I see in early 80's ski races on youtube, so I imagine they just painted their whole lineup the same. I think I got these for something like $60 on ebay.

On the right with the edelweiss is what I believe is their E99's from the later 80's maybe early 90's. They are a little softer, with a lower profile tip, which is weird. Lower than the current E99's, actually. Still pretty solid. These are 180cm I got for my wife, but she has not skied them yet. I got these for $45 on ebay.

Disregard all the fun in the background. My Xtralites (which used to belong to Cannatonic) are on the far right.
