When we first received this ski from Fischer we had high hopes but, sadly, we walked away from our review a bit disappointed. Our expert skiers found it to be quite soft and floppy, with a strange mounting point that took some time to adjust to. This translated to them being difficult to use in the chop and disconcertingly floppy on hard pack. They have a smooth and buttery feel in soft snow, which is their one redeeming quality. They are also super lightweight and could be a good choice for a woman who wants a light pair of skis to hop around on.
For the new season the Ranger 98 becomes the My Ranger 98 and gets a fresh look (pictured above).
