Model: Fischer Progressor (2008)
Size(cm) / Radius(m): 175/16
Manufacturer’s Description of the Fischer Progressor:
"The Progressor is a completely new offering to the race family. Fischer is known for innovation and this ski will exceed expectations. 70mm under foot gives it more all-mountain appeal than any other ski in this category. Hard park or freshies, you’ll be waiting at the bottom for your friends."
It’s a race ski (too bad FIS wouldn’t agree). It’s an expert all mountain carver. It’s a high speed missile that Masters Racers will really appreciate. One thing it’s not - forgiving.
While delivering a different feel than the Dynastar Speed Course 67, the Progressor fits into the same category. Masters Racers and good skiers looking for an aggressive All Mountain Carver with GS possibilities, will love the Progressor’s “ski me hard” persona, while appreciating it’s big platform which distributes pressure to a longer section of edge. The Progressor has VERY secure grip and easy to control on even the scratchiest runs.
They feel a bit heavy before you actually get to ski them, but heavy translates to POWERFUL as soon as you get them up to speed. Lighter less aggressive skiers should probably look elsewhere; as the Progressor can impose its own will if not skied with authority.
