Does anyone know of some demo shops that carry the FX94? I've checked Wachusett but they only have the MX, BMX and LX.

Usually you have to check out a shop near a big mtn. You may want to look at shops near Killington, Stowe, Sunday River, etc.

Yeah. I'm just hoping someone here might know of some before I start cold-calling shops. I'm hoping to find a place in southern VT as well as around Sugarbush.

Yeah, I have an account with The Clymb. I was sorely tempted to buy a pair this morning but I came to my senses. I always try to demo before buying. If I didn't then I'd own a number of skis I didn't like.

I currently have a pair of MX88's and love them. I've been thinking of adding a pair of FX94's for when I'm skiing the woods in Northern VT. As much as I love the MX88's I wish they were a bit more flexible in the trees and bumps, especially when the snow is deeper. I also wish they were easier to initiate a turn in those conditions.

Anyway, I was thinking of picking up a pair of last year's FX94's as I've read the 2014's have more metal and are therefore a bit stiffer. That's why I'm looking to see if I can find a pair to demo.

Come to Magic & you can rip a few laps on my LX92's. Not the FX's but super fun & a little softer. Also just skied my 1st day on BMX108's last weekend. Yes, Clymb purchase. Need a few more days on these but holy sh** were they a blast.

Thanks for the offer, Rusty, but I'm really interested in the FX series.

Thanks to whatever your name is for the Sugarbush options. :smile:
