Twin Tips = Snow Spray ?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My PE's throw up a huge rooster tail of snow. Is this normal for twin tips? Are PE's worse than others, or is this partially my skiing style?

Just curious. My wife and kids hate skiing behind me.

Perfectly normal. Even my son's 115 NBTs are quite capable of blinding me if I get behind him. Goggles on!

generally, the bigger the tip, the bigger the spray.

Yes it's normal and yes, the PEs have a very pronounced tip curvature- moreso than the vast majority of other twin tips. On my mojos, for instance, the contact patch on them in a 176 is virtually identical to the contact patch of a PE in a 179 because the tips are so massive. It also helps give the PE good soft snow performance with that fatty tip. If you held them side by side, the PE's tips go near-perpendicular to the base when compared to the low-rise mojo tips so yeah, they're more upturned than most others. Tell your family to quit sandbagging if they don't like it.

It helps keep people off you tails. I do feel sorry for the guy riding in the sled when I'm patrolling on a twin.

My obsetheds would send huge tails up, at lower speeds would even get chunks of snow on my neck. In the right conditions the tails seriously had to be 15 feet high.

I can't follow close behind my twin anymore because he just got a set of Line Blends.

If I follow close behind him I can't see anymore, and if it's windy...it's painful.

I either have to lead the way or wait for a bit...then I catch up and have to stop. ****in twin tips!

The PE rooster is pretty obnoxious.

Yeah, PEs are definitely bad, except when I am on them and in front
