Looks like if I want to try some approach boots, I better grab them while there's still an HO.

Herb should've called the new co. H3.

Sounds like lots of change going on there.

Those new Fischer skis sure are getting alot of hype

Lots of key folks leaving the way I understand it. No more Herb. No more Eddie.

The whole Fischer thing just seems like a lot of hype right now. No skis out there to speak of. I hope they turn out to be awsome but it sure seems like their timing is off since the season has started and still no skis. Also no demo program. :( What's up with that?

Hey isn't there another company out there with a similar name and similar circumstances? :rolleyes:

I have seen pics of Schnitz on a Fischer (on his site) I think there are a few out there now IIRC based on posts on the Nichols site. They sound kinda neat but they are very new to the biz, I wonder if any pros will be skiing on them?

The ones that are out there (Schnitz and some others) are all pre-production models for testing etc. Don't think you will see pros on them this year. They are already well into the season and I don't see the pros switching sticks mid stream.
Fischer definitely has the expertise in carbon fiber and deep pockets.

Many moons ago i skied on Fischer snow skis before going Vokyl. Nice skis, good quality.

I thought the tip was interesting with the holes. Something different and all asthetic I would guess??

I have Volkyl P40 Platinums. I suppose they are about 5 seasons old now or so. They are speed demons, no problems on them and have been clocked @ 78mph and they hold great. Not so great in the bumps but for me I don't care, I'd rather been in the steeps.

It's good times, on the right ski and good conditions it really doesn't feel that fast. Oh... make sure you are wearing goggles, not sunglasses, that is unless you enjoy having your eyes drain tears all over your face :rolleyes:

My best friends Dad is a ski instructor at Breckenridge, we've skied with him after hours and before hours. Watched him ski in the mid 90's before like it was no big deal. He has bigger cahoneys than me :uglyhamme
