Pro Yes, Fischer makes a more manageable all-mountain freerider. But it knows that some women don’t want to be coddled. The Vision 76 offers a nominally more feminine graphic, but it’s identical in shape and construction to the AMC 76. Women get a forward mounting point and a shorter, lighter version of Fischer’s free-flexing binding interface. But none of our testers detected even the faintest hint of condescension for the supposedly gentler sex. The Vision 76 is stable and strong, with a self-assuredness that might overmatch a less-aggressive woman but will breed confidence in a skier with the skills to match it. “Great snap from turn to turn, requiring little effort for all types of turns,” said Wilde. Con As with the AMC 76, too strong for soft powder.
