What is the best "skiing" twin tip?
I want to get a good GS style ski but I also want it to be twin tipped. Something for icy days just for ripping around.
Im a little out of the loop on park skis but it seems like they are more for jumping and rails then they are for skiing.
What is the hardest carving twin tip these days?

I've got a pair of Scott Punishers that rip pretty good as long as they have a good tune on them. They also do fine for slidy, spinny shit in the park. Pretty good all around ski imo.

I actually clicked on here to reccomend the Scott Punishers as well... now I am just redundant. I ski a pair of the 191's as my not deep everyday ski.

I have a pair of Punishers as well, funny. Love them. Very quick to turn and stable. Dont ski them much, but late in the afternoons and I'm just screwing around on groomers after everything is chewed up, I find them to be easy on the legs and quick to spin around. Very playful ski that can still hit powder, laps in the park and carve a trench. AND, the top sheets are made from some material of another planet. My Obsetheds topsheets look like they've been through a war zone and my Punishers are 2 years older with barely any nicks.

The K2 Public Enemy has always been a favorite of mine and many others,dont know how the latest update of this ski is though.I think its called the K2 Extreme.You dont stop playing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop playing

Big Troubles, not sure about the newer replacements though. Not sure the punishers are stiff enough to really carve fast GS turns either, and pretty sure the turn radius is too short.

prophet 9060% of the time, it works every time.

^^^ Agreed, the line Prophet 90 is pretty similar in skiing style to a gs ski, but with a slightly tighter radius. Fairly stiff flex, responsive, easy turn initiation, good edge hold. It's a pretty solid choice.

Agree. The Line Prophet 90 I think is one of the best do anything twins made. Beautiful top sheets as well IMO

It's got to be something by MOMENT. Either the Tahoe, or Belafante. I've skied the Tahoe...really nice, and I've skied the Garbone (almost perfect). I have not skied the Belafante, but it's supposed to be a tuned down version of the Garbone. As such, it is certainly worth consideration."My policies are based not on some economics theory, but on things I and millions like me were brought up with: an honest day's work for an honest day's pay; live within your means; put by a nest egg for a rainy day; pay your bills on time; support the police."

I love the Prophet 90 but don't own a pair.
Wifey and I own K2 Public Enemys (now marketed as K2 Extremes) and Stockli Rotors.

If you go prophet 90 and want to ski the whole mountain, I strongly recommend the 186? length. The 179s lack "umph" when you try to lay high speed trenches.
They are a very nice all around ski.

Haven't been on them but the reviews I have seen of the Armada Triumph seem to be exactly what you are describing. Worth looking at maybe...

Another vote for prophets here.My drinking buddies say i have a skiing problem...
10-03-2010, 06:31 AM #17
Yet another vote for Line Prophet. I own the 100 and it really can do anything from tight fall line turns to full throttle. Believe 90 is stiffer and probably more like what you want. Great ski especially for the $$$.
I've yet to try them but certainly will this year - DPS Wailer 95 Hybrid flex 3. Bet this would be very much worth a look.The Passion is in the Risk

You can probably score a cheap pair of Head Mojo 90. They carve really well and at least I didn't find any speed limit, I had 193cm for couple of seasons and I loved them.

2nd the mojo 90 at 186+, and FWIW the Head Supermojo 105 can rip pretty nice GS turns as well.

Yes, the Head Mojo 94 rips.Dollar sign that bitch.

Head Mojo 94 / Joe 94
Both have metal layers, and no rocker.
"Comparable" skis that disappointed me for hard-pack performance:

Can also thoroughly recommend the Head Mojo94/John94/Johnny94.
The Prophet is a good ski, although I never got on with it myself.
The Punisher is a decent carver, but at speeds and on hard stuff the Head performs better.

I haven't tried that many but I really enjoyed High Society FRs when I had them. They ripped groomers, were stiff and responsible yet light and poppy.
