I skiied last seasons RX Cold Heat and what a ski that is. Have no doubt being a Fischer these will be equally as good but look a lot narrower at the waist so might be compromised in powder.

And the 2009 design is awful.

I have the 2008’s… They’re great and all but, I disagree, I think the 2009 design at least looks nicer. That’s true regarding the width, however, I love its powder performance and don’t want to sacrifice any of it!

I have the 2008 and skied them few times in the East.  I’ve had good days and bad days.  So I can’t say it’s an all mountain ski for sure.  They are good.  Or maybe that’s how I ski?! Good days and bad days.

I now have 12 days on the ‘09 Cold Heats in conditions from really hard, hardpack to overboottop pow. I am totally stoked by how versatile these are. 60 yrs old, 165 lb, 5’ 10”, I have a lot of years on old, long straights. I’m now on the 176 cm Cold Heats and find them everything I need to ski the whole mtn - most often Mammoth. They do groomers at both SL and GS speeds and turns extremely well. I’ve not found a speed limit for them yet. for an 82 mm waist, they go edge to edge as quickly as I need them to. On steep and scratchy, their edge hold is confident. No problemos dropping into a chut and worrying you’re gonna wash out. They motor through set up crud and although not real forgiving, i have no problems with them in bumps. Not being a ttue ski for pow, the width is good and the flex is even, so they are a bunch of fun in the deep if you stay on them and ‘centered’. I tend to ski more on technique rather than mashing, but when the goin get tough/weird I have no problems mashin my way through, and these skis do it all. Came with Fischer/Tyrolia Railflex Bindings. They’ve worked flawlessly, no pre-release issues at all (toe set to 7, heel to 8) and I luv the easy adjustability of boot position, a real plus!

Setup - I now run them about 1 cm forward (boot center to mark) on varied terrain and conditions; ‘centered’ on smooth or heavily groomed terrain and have run centered in pow (although I’ll prolly drop back at least 5mm and maybe 1 cm for the next deeper pow day). No tip protector, so the tips do show some edge cuts, but no real issues of excessive cuts or damage considering the ski days and conditions. A precise ski for a good, even hard, skier, in a short package. There’s no terrain or condition I wouldn’t try on these! awesome!
