Fischer RC4 Worldcup SL 2012 Slalom Ski Review

The Fischer RC4 Worldcup SL 2012 Slalom Race ski is reviewed by Darren Turner, Ski School App presenter and ski instructor on the sunny slopes of Bormio, Italy during the SIGB ski test.

A race ski that still manages to be accessible, the Fischer RC4 Worldcup SL ski has a hole in the tip that reduces swing weight. Rab Reid of Thin Ice Sports (the UK importers of Fischer Skis) gives Darren a rundown and then the Ski School App presenter and former ski racer gives the ski a workout.

Ski School by Elate Media says:

They are very good skis.

WildFox says:

What happens if your skii are to tall?

tomhijkl says:

You should try elan skies, they are great too

tmxjonny says:

So did you test the stiff or the medium version of the ski? I am thinking about buying the medium version as i am a fairly light skier. (67 kg)

Also how does this ski compare to the atomic slalom ski you tested? says:

and I own such wonderful skies=))

@smicha7 Hi Smicha7, great to hear from you again. My colleague, Andrew “Noddy” Gowans put the Head Motorhead Inferno ski through its paces – that review will go up tomorrow.

Ski School by Elate Media says:

@tmxjonny It was the stiff version but I think for your weight definitely medium would be better I hope you enjoy them.

Scott Philbrook says:

I picked up a used pair of RC4 skis and they look awesome, haven’t gotten on snow yet, they are for my daughter who is racing.
Question – i understand they may be made in different stiffness, how can you tell what the ski is?

smicha7 says:

Darren, I’d love to see you testing head. Do you have any access to new models?

Sandy Jenkins says:

Just went through a demo day.  They had Head, Elan, Solomon, Fischer, Blizzard, and Rossignol.  I loved the Fischer so much that I am looking for a pair now.  They are the best ski I think I have ever been on.  I also really liked the Blizzard, Head, and Elan but the Fischer was just so far ahead.  The way they turn in is amazing and the feel like it is a ski that really carves compared to the others.  The Blizzard was surprising to me in that I could hold it and pop the ski whenever I wanted.  Lots of energy in that ski, it would be a 2nd choice for sure.

I’ve got a pair of them, they are evil… always wanting to do slalom turns, improved my times down courses a lot from using atomic slalom skis previously.

Ski School by Elate Media says:

They are very good
