I was initially going to replace my S112s with the S98s...
My S112 from 5 yrs ago are still working despite coreshots, worn fishscales and multiple dents/chips. My S125 is in great condition. These will be hard to replace...S125 may be one of a kind...I am saving them for big mtn expeditions. I may replace the Fischer S112 with the new Asnes Sverdrup pending real world reviews. I'm finding as I get better, I am not needing so much width for the terrain I am skiing and a lighter ski would be great for long approaches. Also, I need skis that can grip better on hard/icy surfaces...S112 (and most likely S98) has no grip at all.
I'm also looking into traditional downhill skimo/racing skis like the Plum Le Roc D'Enfer, 160cm 97-68.5-83 ...for fast and steep ascents in mixed spring conditions.
btw, skis are on sale now! vendors are stocking the new models already.
