Re: Fischer Excursion 88 vs Outtabounds - Newb

The 88s seem to have just a touch more camber. The Outtabounds may just have slightly less sagged a little... does this happen with skis? Yes- cambered XC skis do lose their camber through many seasons of use. (Some cambered XC skis are so soft they can lose their camber in a single season! :twiste...

Re: Downhill performance : Ingstad vs Rossi BC 110 vs Raab 68

Last week we were switching ski and I tried the wider underfoot BC 110 and I saw a big difference in my downhill « performance «  but they felt really heavy compared to my Ingstad. I don’t really consider buying the Rossi 110 but I am using it as a compraison. This is very interesting...I am wonder...

Re: Downhill performance : Ingstad vs Rossi BC 110 vs Raab 68

Nitram, you cannot compare the FT 62 to the Ingstad, not in XC or downhill. Yes- they are very different skis. The FT62 is a downhill ski, with a downhill flex and camber. I have not skied downhill where the FT 62 was not at least the equal of the S Bound 112 (which many believe to have the same co...

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....
