They are the 9Xs from 2 years ago (I think, maybe it's 3 now), and they look
like that year's 9Xs, but apparently that's where the similarities end.  Matt K.
has a former racer of his who has skied both the race-stock and the
over-the-counter 9X, and says they're a totally different ski.  I have no idea
what the dimension of mine are, though they are 191cm in lenth.  And they are
also one reason I will never abandon groomed McTrails!

I'll trade you the Mach 2's (with bindings!) for the Fischers!!
