NEED HELP DECIDING ON AN ALL MOUNTAIN TWIN!!! PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

so im looking to to buy a new pair of twins but to be honest i have no idea what to get. im looking for a nice all mountain twin. not to stiff but not to soft. the trouble is i would like to spend 300 or below for the skis without bindings. if anyone would like to please give me some suggestions maybe even find a nice setup with bindings that would be very much appreciated. i pretty much ride all mountain. rails,booters,kickers,boxes, then you know typical riding so there has to be somewhat of a nice edge. so if you guys could leave some suggestions that would help me out alot because i am really bad when it comes to this part of skiing (like purchasing and looking for new skis). i dont ride juniors, i ride mens. what i have now is 162 atomic nomads. (nothing special just for teaching because i am also an instructor) but i feel as if that may be to big for me. i was thinking a little bit smaller than that for my twins?? what do you guys think

As an instructor, do you have access to pro-forms on any particular brands?

thunder ridge? say hello to my friend eric schmidt, he's a patroller there.

as small as that bump is, you should see eric ski bumps........ 

 

my son just got masterminds.... moved over from troublemakers. he skis on a free-ride team in okemo, they came recommended.

i think they were 329.00

ps they ski short, go longer.......

You should actually be looking for something around 170ish as they will ski shorter and more like the length you are currently on. On ebay right now is a Fischer addict for something like 230 plus shipping.  Good all mountain twin if mounted Pist instead of Park. Give them a look.   Dave
