First Set of Twins

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am looking to get my first set of twins before this season, I have been a half dozen or so times mostly to Michigan but a few times in Breck.  I’d say im an intermediate that is looking for a park ski for sure.  Im 6’4 around 187 and been told 175ish would work best.  Ive been looking at literally every ski I can find online and I wanted some other opinions.  What would you recommend , keeping in mind that im not lookin to break the bank.

Free Tibets

Handmade by artists in Italy. The finest craftsmanship with a uber smooth flex & you will have them for years due to the quality of the construction. A playfully fun twin that will up your game & not punish.

Plus you're have the benefits of skiing one of the few pairs on the continent!

Not what you would buy in REI!

Well do you want something over 100mm at the waist or under (will u be skiing pow or anything deep over ankle). 

 

For sure if you want a ski that will be sick in the park and just as sick everywhere else...Get the Line Blend 183...its 100mm underfoot so perfect balance between powder and shredstick, and a good landing base, also there is enough rocker to notice and float, but not so much u wont like it. I really think youll like this ski.

 

P.S.    DO NOT GET 175 unless you ABSOLUTELY LIKE (takes time to know difference) your skis shorter...i would recommend 180.  I am an inch shorter than you but 10 lbs heaver. 175 is too short.  

183 length is my teaching/park ski, and im an inch shorter than you. I ski 190+ on or off piste, even in trees. go longer

Nice touch, Phil.  That's what I first thought of too.  Behave!

 

Like SkiSafe said, 175 will be too short.  The turned up tail of a twin tip will effectively shorten the ski's edge.  I'm about your size, and feel comfortable on 186 cm twintip skis in all conditions.  I've got no recommendations for you as to a particular brand.  Good luck.
