Re: TURNAMIC - Rossignol And Fischer Partner To Create New Binding System

Will it be worth the upgrade or is Turnamic more of a convenience upgrade and not so much of a performance upgrade from the current non-turnamic systems? Seems like more so convenience. If you buy a new 2017/18 model year Fischer ski next year, I bet it will come with a Turnamic plate. Therefore th...

Re: Fischer RC5 vs RC7 Skate Boots & CRS vs SCS Skate Skis

At almost $300 off (w/tax), I *highly* recommend the RC7 + SCS package. Both are a noticeable improvement in performance over their alternatives, and are a much better value long-term. Too bad MEC doesn't sell the RCR (or RCS). Being on the Salomon side, I always wondered why MEC never carried Salo...

Re: Hardwood or Horseshoe for Kids xc ski?

In a bit of a conundrum about xc ski lessons for my daughter this winter and wonder if any S. Ont ski parents may have some insight.

Hi, [...] I've set my eyes on some Fischer gear (all on sale) but being a somewhat uninformed nordic ski gear person I would like some input from the forum :-) Hello! I think you should try out boots of various manufacturers to see what fits you best. Otherwise I recommend spending as much as you c...

Fischer RC5 vs RC7 Skate Boots & CRS vs SCS Skate Skis

Hi, I am a fitness focused skate skier who likes to hit the trails about 6-8 times a year and may take part in just-for-fun races in the future. I would like to get a new skate package at my local MEC store. I've set my eyes on some Fischer gear (all on sale) but being a somewhat uninformed nordic s...
