Fischer SCS Classic

Price Paid: $200
Affordable yet fast, these skis are a great option for an experienced skier who doesn't want to blow the bank. They are durable enough to use as an everyday or marathon ski, and the NIS plate system makes installing or switching bindings a cinch.
I have two pairs of SCS Classics. The price versus performance equation makes these skis a no-brainer. If you're a highly competitive racer, you'll want to move up a few models to shave a few grams and get a faster base, but these are great for a casual for-fun racer.
I use them as everyday skis, and couldn't be happier. When purchasing, pay attention to the flex rating, because it can vary a lot.
