Strenghts:
Very versatile, easy with nice cut in the piste and lovely flow in the offpiste

Weaknesses:
Not great at any specific type of skiing

Summary:
Fischer Ranger 98 Ti is a very versatile ski that works well in almost all terrain areas. It has a wonderful blend of speed, agility and maneuverability. It is a ski that is home in the offpiste, but also fits very well in the piste. It is definitely a fitting ski for the advanced or the skier who wants to ski everywhere.

Fischer Ranger 98 Ti has an Air Tec Ti Wood Core that reduces the total weight while maintaining twist and rigidity. The end result is a slide that is easy and maneuverable, but also good at high speed carving. Getting the skid on the edge was also relatively easy, but they are not too forgiving. The skid is actually good when you put it on the edge and then you want to swirl quickly. It does not mean that they perform like a pure pistachio in icey slopes. In deep pillows they work really well, the lightweight composition makes for a 98mm waist they have a fantastic flow.

Fischer Ranger 98 Ti is a very versatile ski that really makes everything pretty good. It does not necessarily stand out in any area, but the combination of fast and smooth maneuverability and an affinity for speed make it a fun ski ride.

Best grade for its versatility, worst in flow. Birch and poplar core, carbon in the nose and titanium elements. Fischer's "Aeroshape" should have removed unnecessary material. Fischer's Ranger Series impressed the test boys and best performed just this allmountain variant with the 98 millimeter skirt under the boot.

Strenghts:
Titanium inlays under binding to keep screws in, easy to ski, good base, nice over all shape of ski, fairly lightweight, good looks, stable at higher speed, great balance and float in powder.

Weaknesses:
Factory recommended mounting point to far forward.


The ski has a short two turning radius for me.

The ski has very soft tail. Dette er noget som den gennemsnitlige skier vil ikke have et problem med, men hvem som helst, som faller ned i klipper eller går fast i crude forhold, vil hver gang og da komme langt tilbake om tårene og miste kontrollen på grunn av dette. The ski is just too soft in the tail to be pushed hard. If you are over 70-75kg. I would not recomend this ski.

Summary:
The Ranger 98 felt good from the first turn. These are my first Fischers in over a decade.
They are easy to ski in eveything and a lot of fun.
I've tried them in various conditions from powder, wind pack and slush to the dreaded thrashed afternoon frozen slush and ice balls. These skis do it all well. Very well infact! Bortsett fra de hårdfrosne thrashed ting hvor de har tendens til at få en smule nervøs når du kommer ud af den carve at shave off nogle fart i stejle sektioner. This is not so much a weak point as all skis except heavy duty downhill racing skis will do this.

De low rockered tips was a concern for me at first. To the eye it looks like they might be a bit too low, but once you stand on the ski in the snow they work like magic. The flex pattern is a bit stiffer up front than it is in the back. This is the secret ingredient that makes the tips lift a little and the skis are just right in the snow.

The ski carve through anything from crude to ice runs with ease.

The factory recommended mounting point is very centered on the ski. After much measuring eyeballing and balancing I mounted mine at 15mm. bak anbefalede punkt og jeg ville rådgive alle som er å købe dette ski to do the same. Go at least 15mm. bak anbefalede punkt eller ellers vil du få et skib der tæler at blive hængt på tæerne og sætte dig i ryggen. Dette vil være spesielt irriterende i stramme steder som i chutes eller in moguls.

The skis look great with their shiny domed deck and the visible carbon fiber in the tips. De har en eksklusiv følelse om dem, og fordi de har det domæne dekk, de er hyggelige på din skulder når du også bærer!

Jeg har hatt in later years, og jeg har hatt i senere år. The edges are hanging a bit lower than the base in the tips but this is no big deal since it's in front of where the tip lifts of the ground.

-----------

After having had some more time on this ski there is a weak point I would like to mention:

The ski has very soft tail. Dette er noget som den gennemsnitlige skier vil ikke have et problem med, men hvem som helst, som faller ned i klipper eller går fast i crude forhold, vil hver gang og da komme langt tilbake om tårene og miste kontrollen på grunn av dette.
