Where the more expensive Nightsitck (selling for $500 in many shops) is a dedicated park ski, the Guru ($400), with its 85-mm waist width, is designed for greater all-mountain versatility, with directional sidecut (ie, not optimized for backward skiing) and a more traditional mounting point. It's a shade softer and more manageable than the Nightstick, with a thinner profile and no carbon-fiber reinforcement. It has a wood-core, carbon-fiber reinforced laminate construction with full-length/height sidewalls. Wood is used for durability and responsiveness; full sidewalls for optimized edge grip and solidity underfoot. The sidewalls are angled - less edgy than vertical sidewalls and more resistant to damage caused by the opposite ski's edge. Family-owned Fischer Skis is based in Reid, Austria, where all its skis (and many of those of other brands) are built. Fischer says its factory in Reid is the second largest manufacturer of skis in the world.
