well he did say it was his take on the mantras.
so obviously its right for him and would be wrong for other people.
so whats the point in that who's right and who's wrong opinion? he is just sharing his opinion on the mantras.
I agree that the mantras wouldnt be the best choice of skis on anything less than a decent amount of pow. I ski my mantras when I plan on skiing lines with about calf deep powder especially through trees or tight runs, since the mantras do hold a good edge in those conditions.
Not sure about tigersharks for anything not on the frontside, I'm pretty sure you'd sink a lot without leaning way back.
For eastern off piste skiing volkl unlimited would work best, you dont really need fat skis for that side of north america

also whats eastern off piste skiing? here you can find untracked snow EVERYDAY! every freaking day. The reason is most of is junky and unskiable to most people but if you have large skis most likely with rocker you can get though it all and have way more fun than the groomers.
