This is VERY true. If I lived somewhere other than the Midwaste, I'd probably be on twins all the time, and probably something larger than 85mm at the waist. I found them to be good on all but the hardest snow, and I could use them for anything except the hardest carving, which is about all we have to do out here on our little hills. I ended up selling them and went back to skis that were great on ice. I still have one set - Rossi Scratch BC's @ 178cm, but I really wish I had them in a 185 or so.
Twins really brought out my "A" game - they inspired confidence (for me), and I skied stuff I normally would tend to stay away from. I found them very stable, and pretty light compared to the usual GS-style ski I've been on all these years. I'll probably keep them on my list of stuff to keep an eye out for though. Unfortunately with the economy being how it is, my travelling opportunities are drying up a bit - which was part of the reason I sold most of my twins. I realized I was going to be skiing more here than there...
