The ski has turned out to be very tunable. I will return to bone stock sometime before the end of the test but for now the old Fischer #s are solid. 29.5 / 6.878 / 2.453 / .743 (slot) or .666 (Needle). Thanks to Darwin for sending these along.
Previous to the current settings (closer to factory numbers) the ski always felt frantic. Turns were super fast and resulted in buckets of angle. With the fin further back On and Off side were more even. The ski was a monster on both sides. The downside is too much angle can mean too much load resulting in a shallow of outbound path.
With the fin further forward, shorter and shallower the ski is a bit tamer. It is still an aggressive ride but feels calmer underfoot.
Off side turn is still fantastic. The ski comes around very fast and forgives an over aggressive skier. Weight distribution does not seem overly critical.
On side turn requires a little more front foot pressure than it did with the previous settings. Compared to other high end skis I would call the need for front foot pressure at On Side moderate. (Some skis let you tail ride and some require you to stomp your front foot.)
Every ski works better with a tight handle all the way to the ball line and weight on your front foot. The Razor is no different. As I stick with these settings for a number of rides I will refocus on my own skiing and should learn more about what this ski likes.
My only conclusion so far is that the Razor is the real deal. I ran 5 @ 38 last night (Perfect Pass). For me that is pretty darn good for this time of year. If I had to ride the Razor all season, I would be perfectly happy.
