Re: WTB - Fischer Excursion 88 size 179cm

They’re hard to find new this year due to Covid buying. Probably move pretty fast used.

Re: New BCXC considering Fischer Traverse 78 / S 88 / S 98

Dave, I don’t own a T-78, E-88, or Ingstad. The 88 would float a little better, and be a bit slower. I do not think you will be able to buy one this year. It gets more difficult every day to buy skis, Covid buying, and it seems to be a preferred ski by people buying this season. Search Lilcliffy in ...

Re: Help! Need kick waxing advice after a tour with much ski back-slipping

I live in the land of not so good wax conditions. If blue isn’t golden as far as grip from the first kick, I don’t go any further without red/silver. I have no use for red whatsoever. With all do respect to Mr. Canna I have some V-50 Violet and have not written off as of yet. So, let’s say you go 3 ...

Re: An anecdotal review of Amundsens from an inexperienced skier

Great job on the write up! I also noticed, that although you had no real experience, you were able to get on a high performance ski and enjoy it.
Perhaps it really is unnecessary to start out on a “training wheels” ski first.

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Hey Teleman, 215 E-99’s and steep??? Maybe there might be a reason you haven’t done that in a while?
Be careful out there.

Re: New daily drivers

The trail follows a steep river valley. For many miles it’s a maybe 2 foot wide ribbon in what would be the steep slope high above the river. So the side hill part makes it a little dangerous. That is because the trail has a steep up and down component as well. So while it’s steep up and down, you c...

Re: New daily drivers

So, I’ve been following the Woods lift served ski saga for a while. How much of improvement over these skis from the K2 Wayback? Just curious, I do have a pass to ski weekends up north. Just more interested in some back country downhills. That and a 10 mile tour that is challenging ski terrain, no r...

Re: New BCXC considering Fischer Traverse 78 / S 88 / S 98

The S-112 is not what I would choose to break trail with. While the Nordic rocker is good downhill, it is not a good trail breaking ski. The original poster will totally crush the camber on the 98, while being less wide than the 112 it probably will be more pleasant on the trail for 190 lb man. I wo...

I'd say if you want to learn to do telemark turns go with the s98 and three pin binding.
That is true. I already know how to make Telemark turn! Going fast on single track is just fun. When it’s fluffy make turns, the rest of the time, go fast and enjoy the roller coaster

Re: New BCXC considering Fischer Traverse 78 / S 88 / S 98

Welcome Dave, I will answer the easiest question first, for you at 190 lbs. the longest ski Fischer makes for any of those three skis. Also, I don’t think you will find an E-88 at all, and you will have difficulty finding the other two due to Covid. I live in Michigan, Telemark skied lift served man...
