    Skis for my brother on the east coast

    My brother in D.C. is looking for a new pair of planks. Since he's mostly riding man-made snow in VA, PA, WV, etc. and variable conditions in VT, he's looking for a playful but non-purely park twin that can hold an edge on shit snow while still doing okay on the off chance he gets a soft VT day. Twin tips are a must, he's thinking his ideal waist is somewhere between 90mm and 95mm (though I could see him at 100mm, too), and he's about 5'6" 160lbs. My gut suggestions were the Faction Candide/Prodigy 1.0/2.0 or the Moment PB&J. Where else should he be looking...assuming they're the red ones?

    I've got a pair of Candide 3.0 176. Perhaps too wide? New. They are red. Never mounted. PM if interested.

    I picked up a pair of Line Tigersnakes for everyday East Coast ski and have been very pleasantly surprised.
    Got em as they were EOY deal at local shop to cruise around with my son, but I take em out more often than not these days vs my Stocklis or Armadas unless it is super hard ( former) or more than a few inches ( latter)

    Seems a little wide for skidding around on the man made out here. Sin7 might give a bit more edge grip, and still plenty skiable in a day of freshies. Not sure I'd call it playful though. It's been my groomer stick of late, but I'm going to something more carving oriented for the ice. Piste Jib is probably a great reco, although I haven't been on it.
