Can't decide on an all mountain twin tip and I could use some input.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi, this is my first post.

 

I am looking for a single quiver ski that will be used for about 50% piste 50% park.

I've been looking at the 2011 Dynastar sixth sense distorter, 2012 Salomon Twenty-Twelve, and the 2012 Armada Pipe Cleaner.

I live in the northeast and will mostly be skiing groomers hard pack and ice. I have been skiing for 8 years now and am a confident

skier. I am 5'10" and 145 lb. 

 

I have outgrown my last pair of skis which were just flat tailed all mountain fischers and am maybe looking to do a little more in the park. I can't resist thinking about getting some kastle mx78's as i found a great deal on them and ive heard good things.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. It's a hard choice.

Welcome to EpicSki!  How old were you when you started skiing?  What is your favorite mountain?  What length are you thinking about?  What is the status of your boots?

I was 8 when i started skiing. I really like Sugarloaf and Sunday River. I'm thinking of 165's to 175's. I have a pair of Head 27.5 cm boots. I'm not home now so I dont know the exact name of them.

Volkl Bridges are my go to ski when I'm not racing or skiing sheet ice... might want to look into those or add them to your list of candidates. I fell in love with them the first time I demo'd them at Sugarloaf... well, my friend demo'd them and I just snagged them from him after a couple of runs, and lets just say the Volkl rep didn't get them back til the latter end of the day. He wasn't that happy about that (since it was supposed to be a two or three run demo in the morning), but I ended up buying a pair for the next season.

I would look at the 2012 Armada AR7 in 171 or 176.

Icelantic Nomad RKR probably 181.  The ski has early rise tip and tail and twin tips so it will ski shotrer than 181.
