WE ARE IN A SKI PICKING MOOD!
Next week, Matt Liebsch, of Gear West, will be heading east to the U.S. distribution center for Fischer Skis in search of the very best race skis. Matt will be taking our Flex Tester to facilitate our ski-picking. Matt will be picking through thousands of skis. At the race level, skis are still built by hand, one at a time. This means a lot of variance within a batch and even within a pair. Thoroughly checking each pair with multiple tools is key to finding the best quality. Matt will use his hands, eyes, and our flex tester to triple check each pair he brings home, ensuring he returns with the best skis.
