Whew. Here goes. (You could not make this stuff up.)
"Montero" - Whatever did Stöckli mean by this name? It can't be just a city in Bolivia, can it? Is that place near to a ski resort or something?
Is there a ski area/ski town in Europe with that same name?
The RC4 RC is a marginal loss of energy/power. A loss that IMHO can only be experienced at the Nth degree.The Fischer RC4 CT is gone? That’s too bad, I was planning on picking up a pair next fall.
Does Fischer have a replacement coming in? What are they going to use as their podium ski?
Sad to see the Bold go as well. I loved that ski for the last 3.5 years and has been my DD here in the east. I went looking for a similar ski and found a better one! I found the K2 Disruption 82ti to be extremely similar to the Bold ,much more exciting than the Bold and the Stockli Laser Ar(Which the Bold is superior to anyway!) great damping and just a lot a fun in one ski. The ski has a Powerwall Construction(similar to edge amplifier though not as extensive) and the Dark matter dampening that really works. The 82ti tail is not as tight as the Bold . If you ride the Bold I am sure you will like the K2 82ti.The S/Force Bold and the TI.80 -- which I think we're also losing -- are great skis. But two things about them bug me: forcing folks into a system binding and the thin edges. It looks like the Redster Q does away with EdgeAmplifier, but the catalog implies it is still only available with a system binding, albeit a really good one. @Philpug, I know a review is forthcoming, but can you tell us if they've beefed up the edges? I'm intrigued by the Q9.8's tighter radius. I'm eyeing the 181 at a 15.2m.
