Testing skis so you don't have to.
Pugski Ski Tester

Philpug: OMG, what a tool ... more like a scalpel, one with a specific purpose: To Lay Trenches. This ski just wants to be on edge and make arcs. While the CT is not a true race ski, it has many of those attributes. It is stiff, it is well built, and it has Fischer’s race plate with a medium 15.5m turn radius in the reference 175cm size. Getting this ski on edge is a treat, and the better and more technically proficient the skier, the more rewarding the RC4 CT will be.
Insider tip: While the plate will accommodate a demo/system binding, don’t insult the RC4 CT by dumbing it down with a lesser binding choice: a Z13 or Z17 is all but demanded to get the most out of the ski.
- Who is it for?
- Technical skiers who want a race ski with a turn radius in the mid-teens; instructors who are going for their next level.
- Who is it not for?
- Tail pushers; skiers who are trying to fake it until they make it. No, you need to be at the grownup table to appreciate the RC4 CT.
