Intermediate+ slalom skier
Steef's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"For me skiing on piste is all about testing the limits of speed and grip of the skis, both slalom and giant slalom. Comfort and flex are less important to me than stability. Skiing is supposed to take a lot of energy out of you."
My favourite piste skis:
1. Atomic Redster D2 GS
2. Stöckli Laser SX
3. Fischer RC4 Worldcup RC
To all my reviews
This Fischer RC4 Worldcup SC is a slalom ski as pure as it comes. And nothing less! It is sharp as a knife. The skis are slick and give clean turning at any moment, at any time. Feels just exactly right, light but not too nervous, and for sure not too slow. Like a trained athlete without any fat. This is how the real optimum slalom ski feels for me. So these Fischer RC4 Worldcup SC Racetrack get my 5 stars. When you take the the Worldcup SC out on the piste, the skis feel as if they are a part of your body. They are like an extension of your legs. The turning and steering is light and sharp, doing exactly what you had in mind. Just think of a turn and the skis will do the rest, automatically.
What an acceleration
The Fischer RC4 WC SC skis are stiff with a lot of pop out of corners to catapult you with big force to the next one. For the less experienced skier this might be a little frightening. You also generate a lot of speed by carving these top end Fischer slalom ski's. And the amount of grip is amazing, always enough, no matter how diagonal you throw them in a corner.
Fischer about the RC4 Worldcup SC
"Professional ski with aggressive, fast line: featuring perfect geometry for awesome power transfer in short and medium turns.", says Fischer. I totally agree, extreme carving with pop is possible on these ski's. Or better, that is what you need to do with them. It is hard to ski in a relaxed way on them as slipping and sliding on a busy slope is not what these skis want. Then the Fischer SC Racetrack will give you a hard time.
