Twins for a big guy
My friend is looking to get some twintips for her boyfriend for Xmas. Walter is 6' 230 lbs. all muscle, awesome teleskier and he wants to get into jibbing on teles. Descent big mountain performance would be good too. I know nothing about jib sticks, but I do have access to deals on salomons--would the 1080 or the PR be good choices for him? Any other suggestions? Also let me know if you have any/know of any twins for sale that might be appropriate. Thanks y'all.

basically anything else would be too soft
though th v-pros aren't that great of a park ski...
i wouldn't go with the PRs, they're ultra noodly soft and if hes big then they'll be bent into sprial shaped blue hood ornaments

as someone just getting into tele, take this for what its worth, but I see alot fo rippin larger telle guys on PR's. I know that I love an ultra stiff alpine ski, but for my fat ass, softer is ok for tele. They are twin, and float well for pow. Plus you get them cheap."Is it necessary to disdain the affluent Escalade driver in the ski area parking lot just because he never threw caution to the wind and gave up work, meat, and let his hair grow in the surreal international sojourn of powder skiing and self-actualiztion?"
WELL OF COURSE, thats why I am me and you aren't
