i think it was either the first white 1260 or the orange ones with the dj on em that where real symetrical twins, but actually there were some ancient wooden ones that i believe were completely twin and symetrical

Word, the original 1260 was totally symmetrical, and so is the invader, Fischer doesn't know what's up.

it was a good concept for a commercial but the editing sucked. the music did not match the video at all and all you heard was the sled which got annoying above the music. And yeah, the invader is a symmetrical twin that can be mounted either way.
You know what'd be awesome? If Line went ahead and exercised their patent rights in regards to the "real twin tip", and launched a lawsuit against Fischer. Line has NEVER done so, and has NEVER actually bothered enforcing their patent, but they should make a big, big exception for Fischer, just to make a point and to make an example out of the euro idiots running Fischer.
Note to Fischer: You didn't come up with shit. Line did. Consider yourselves lucky that Line is generously letting you use their intellectual property. And on that topic, K2 now owns them (along with their IP), so you might wanna pay a little respect where respect is deserved...
no, a lawsuit would be gay, it would probably set a precedent and lots of other ski companies would be scared of innovation fearing a lawsuit from line. But we should all write emails to fischer informing them
i cant take him[liam downey] seriously cuz his name reminds me of that downy bear from back when i was a kid -d loc
I don't deny there are bad things in the US right now, hell, 51% of the country to be exact. But god damnit, our country being fat is NOT a problem. I do't give a shit how fat people are. hell, fat kids are harder to kidnap, that means our country is safer.
you guys are over reacting.. they said the worlds only real twin tip, and they also said its the same way forward and backwards.. they DIDNT on the other hand say that a "real twin tip" means its the same forwards and backwards.. wen they say the worlds only real twin tip they cood mean anytihng by that.. there statements are very general therefor legal action cood never been taken
Why the hell would you really want that anyways? Think about it, when your center of gravity changes when you go switch, as you really cant reverse your knees or anything. It seems like different stresses would be put on the skis when you do that, and they wouldnt be the same as if you were going normal. So, why would you want the tails and tips symetrical?
yah, but with an equal tail length, it doesnt seem like the nose is as long when ur rideing switch. if it was a short tail, it wouldnt flex as well over bumps and crud. and when i had my first twins mounted back from true center, it seemed like they always wanted to spin me so i was faceing forward when i was switch and turning, not so with my center-mounted skis
were talking about symetrical skis.. not true center mounting(even tho all symetrical skis are true centered)... but you can true center any ski so that the nose "doesnt feel as long when ur riding switch"
hey nomensteven, stop being such a fuckin turbo. every one of your posts in here is bullshit.
fischer deserves to be sued over this, plain and simple. there's only one thing they could mean by claiming the addict is the "worlds only real twintip". it's blatantly obvious that they are ripping off line and their patent, which has been around for years and years. you just can't do that. i hope they have to pull that ski from storefronts this fall after claiming what they did.
this just in nomensteven: your full of shit. stop acting like you know whats up and talking out of your ass. this thread pretty much epitomizes your online personality, you dont know whats up, so stop trying....
yeahhh.... but the fisher factory is the biggest ski factory in the world, the make pretty much any ski that comes out of austria so some crossover is to be expected. im 99% sure they make atomic race skis there too, so maybe its actually a triplet....
judging knowledge and legitimacy based on puncutation on a forum is kinda lame man... and i still don't understand what is incorrect about my statement(except the first one where I hadn't gotten to the end yet and the earlier 1260's i had forgotten about)... it is true its extremely unlikely line would ever take legal action... but it is defintly a good thread cause its kind of a dick move to claim something like this...
Once again I would like to point out that attacting someone on their grammatical errors is childish and pointless so shut the fuck up. You've ran out of things to flame with so you've resorted to insulting his character, real cool buddy.
