Line Prophet 98 Twin Tips?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking at buying a new pair of skis... I currently have salomon 1080s that are over ten years old. I am really interested in the line prophet 98s however I am wondering if they are twinned enough in the back to land/ride backwards. I don't spend much time in the park, mostly in the trees, in bowls etc. but I like to occasionally land switch off jumps. Anyone experienced these skis switch? Do they dig in?

I'm not a great skier by no means, but I have a P98 and it has a tinny bit of tail rise, but it's not a twin. It has much less rise in the tail compared to the tip.

 

That said, I can still do 360's and ski backwards on ungroomed runs, but I have no idea about landing switch because I can't do that. I would expect to be able to do that if there isn't much fresh snow, I think it might struggle a bit if there is a good amount of fresh...

 

Took the time to take a picture for you, tail and tip. And don't worry the top sheet is not ruined, those are stickers biggrin.gif Size 172cm, and I was putting pressure at the camber section

The Prophet 98 is a twin tip ski, but is a directional twin which is designed to ski better forward than back. The ski has less rise in the back than the front which is why the back tips don't go as high as the front. You should have no issues landing switch on the 98.
