yah i am pretty sure its about tip height as well... and i think lines large tail on the park skis is 100% marketing gimic.. i have ar5's and there tails are pretty low and i have never come even close to catching them
I would say the justification for the tails on the invaders is so you can mount them either way, which I suppose is a gimic as well especially since you can barely tell with the 05/06 graphics which way they are pointing cuz its all a big blob of stuff.
new fischers are going to be so dope if they are truely symetrical, and having a back tip is important for skiing switch pow, which I highly recomend by the way. and they make huge corn tails which is what they are really for.
And that is all that I think I know.

I have a dream that one day all skis will have at least a 90mm wast.
I think the idea is that what people are realizing a "True Twintip" today is way more progressive and true than simply having equal tip/tail height.
Fischer is calling the addict a true twintip, Line called the Invader symmetrical and also true. "True" was first used by line to mean tip/tail height but now WE the NSers are evolving with the technology and I think true in the future will come to include shape symmetrical construction and height.

are you sure... according to their website it has "directional twin" with "medium tail height".... so im pretty sure the tail isnt as high as the tip... i cood be wrong tho.. but either way true twin tip is jsut a marketing scheme so it really doesnt matter
