Fischer Ranger 92 Ti Skis
The Fischer Ranger 92 Ti offers a balance of power, stability, quickness and maneuverability which advanced to expert all-mountain skiers will truly enjoy. Best described as well-rounded, the Ranger 92 Ti is equally as capable on groomers as it is of piste or in softer snow. Go catch that early morning corduroy and enjoy some soft leftovers off piste all on the same ski. A full wood core enhanced by two laminates of Titanal give the ski a lot of power and stability. Out in the tip, the metal tapers out where it meets a sheet of carbon which keeps the extremity of the ski super light and easy to bring around. With a lighter more forgiving tip, skiing things like bumps and tight trees becomes very easy. A relatively flat and powerful tail give you solid support through a turn and give the ski a nice snap as the turn finishes. A tapered shape to the tip and slight early rise in the tail provide tons of lateral maneuverability when you find yourself in some tighter situations, but a 17-meter turn radius allow for some dynamic arcs in groomed terrain. Providing a pleasant blend of power and playfulness, there are a lot of advanced to expert skiers that would enjoy the Fischer Ranger 92 Ti in any terrain except for the deepest snow.

Thanks for your inquiry,
The Fisher 92 Ti skis would be a nice choice in a 185 cm length based your stats and skiing preferences. Just enough metal in them to make them damp and precise on hardpack, just enough carbon and rocker profile to make them light and maneuverable for those tight turns you like to make on the sides of the trails as well as float in some fresh. The Declvity 92 Ti will offer more float in fresh pow or softer snow due to their wider tips and rocker profile but you will lose edge grip and better hard snow performance with these. The Mindbender 90 Ti has great hard snow and carving capabilities but is limited to what is can do off the front side and in powder.
Our recommendation for best quiver of one- The Salomon QST 92. This ski just has no weaknesses and its shape, profile and construction make it not too heavy, not to light, not too wide or narrow, but just right in all the right ways. It's an approachable ski that is very user friendly to a variety of skier types, turn shapes and conditions. Ski it hard and fast, ski it slow and conservative, and it will respond. East or West with the exception of the deepest of days, you won't regret it.
Hope this helps and think snow!
I like the sounds of the Ranger 92 is a great choice, with the K2 hot on its heels. The Maverick may be on the stiff side while the Ranger 94 is on the wide side. The QST is great, but kind of non-descript, while the Ranger 92 and the K2 have fantastic energy and performance while remaining manageable and maneuverable for the kids. I'd look to the upper-170's to low 180's for length in either of those models. Have fun!
Since you are already a fan of the Fischer 107ti, no reason to swap brands. I would go 99ti. Gives you more versatility than the 92ti in variable terrain, mixed snow conditions, pow, but still has the heft to carve the hardpack and ice that we have here in Stowe, VT and the East coast in general. And when Mother Nature does cooperate East or West, the added waist width will really come alive in the trees, steeps, and ungroomed frontside/backside terrain. You could have the 99ti as your quiver of one for anywhere you ski for all but the deepest of days.
Hope this helps.
I agree for the most part, although there are certainly some exceptions. I'd feel confident going with the mid-upper 90's, especially in those models that you listed. Mantra is definitely the most precise of that grouping while the Stance and Ranger each are about a step behind in terms of power, but still quite strong and turny. If you want a bit more accessibility, I'd lean to the Stance or Ranger, but for the best possible carving power in that shape, go Mantra. I'd say 177 if you're more aggressive. Have fun!
A 95mm brake will be the way to go for this ski. 85mm is too small and 110mm is to big, so 95 will be just right.
stable all-mountain ski to continue sking with high-edge angle. I am a pretty aggressive skier and was looking at the
Nordica Enforcer, Black Crow Serpo, and the Fischer Ranger TI. How would you say those
compare and which is most stable/stiff and capable of completing high edge angle turns
Coming from a race background the Enforcer is going to be right up your alley. It's a fast and powerful ski with two metal laminates that wants to be on edge. It can be taken off trail no problem but its most at home on trail ripping carves. The Serpo and Ranger would be good for more overall versatility, but for high angle carving the Enforcer is hard to beat.
