I said, no plans until AFTER Argentina!

I've been speaking with Dougie of R21 about their slalom training course in November... It fits in so nicely just before the Ski Club Rep's Course that it seems rude not to... Anyway, right now I'm looking at my options for slalom skis...

So far I'm down to two contenders:

  • Fischer RC4 SL WC Race - review

  • Rossignol 9S World Cup - review

So far I'm leaning towards the Rossi's... Snow and Rock have a pair in their sale that are 155 but I think I'll go for the FIS minimum length of 165 or so, that way I can actually use them if I want to do the Test Technique on them after the course... I expect I'll wait for some feedback from Lucy and try and ski them in Argentina before I make my final decision...

Then I'll need some GS skis for the euro test...

Live fast, die with broken knees...

Hi, if you want to get some feedback on skis from racers themselves try posting on here http://www.mysnowsports.com/main_cpg/index.php, quite a few UK and some European racers frequent that site. This season I've seen a lot of racers with Fischer but few Rossi skis.

Thanks Bernie,

I'm also going to need some leg and hand guards, I notice you have these on your site, do you have them in stock ? Do the hand guards fit all poles?
