FULL REVIEW

The Fischer Big Stix 122 impressed testers with its lightweight feel and ability to make mid-range turns at slower speeds. It felt especially forgiving when it wasn’t being pushed too hard, and would make a nice option for lighter skiers or Sunday drivers who like to make GS-style arcs on smooth slopes.

The ski’s performance suffered whenever testers tried to push it or amp up the speed. It also did not feel as playful as other skis in this class, especially when making tight turns in the trees.
