Technical info:
Many had their first experience with fat skis through the Bigstix-series. Now it's back in a wide rocker version. It has a construction that is somewhere between semicap and sandwich. Relatively long setback, long taper and quite similar rocker at both ends. The skis are relatively heavy and medium stiff. Fischer goes for the well tested solutions. The camber is traditional and there is nothing ground-breaking about Bigstix. As a modern freeride ski it´s fairly average.

On snow:
But rest assured, the classic Bigstix is back - wider than ever. It is among the largest skis in the test, and it floats well. It is not particularly responsive nor very playful, but it appears to be safe at high speed. Fischer might not be among the brands that gets your mouth watering, but you will be surprised by the new Bigstix. It suits your average Norwegian big-mountain skier with a plane ticket to some powder hole, preferably one where the woods are white and steep.
