blends or chronics. pipecleaners if you don't hit rails
Hope for snow 07-08 campaign!
PM for invite to AlaskanRiders if your Alaskan or the blank cult.
the stiffest skis I've been on were line eric pollard pros from 04/05, they were the same as the chronic wides that came out the season after that. they were too stiff for my liking, but I was like 125lbs on the 166 cm length.
from your post, it seems like you want something for allmountain. other skis that i've heard were stiff that you can look into are..
K2 Public enemies
line chronic blends
line chronic wides
line chronics (i think they softened it this year though, so maybe the older years)
heard some head skis were rather stiff (mojo? or madtrix? i'm not sure)
4frnt msp (waist may exceed 90mm depending on the length you choose)
Head JO Pro? It's fairly thin (79 waist I think) but the stiffest and lightest park ski I have ever felt.
Steezin' on the hills since '92
You might want to check out the Mojo 90's, those are pretty stiff for a twin. What you should really do is go down to a shop and check out the skis for yourself, because everybody has a different idea of what constitutes a stiff ski.

line blend or 4frnt msp. end of discussion.
I think the walls are pretty stiff, and the Touble makers are prety stiff as well
--> totem pole
yeah, I was messing around with the Line Blend in a shop last week and they are crazy stuff. I was surprised. It could be what your looking for.
yea i was thinking about the Blend or the PE or the Wall...hard decisions did the wall replace the karma?
head mojo's , mine are good for charging hard all day
the karma was basically split into two more specific skis this year i believe, with the wall and the bridge. walls are completely symmetrical, so it's more park oriented
well, not really no. sure those are two good "stiff" all mtn options for the kid, but by no means the only options. he also hasn't said how he skis or what he wants it for, so here's a list:
(more park specific -> more all mtn)
Fischer Addict Pro
Head J.O. Pro
Head Mojo 90
Line prophet 90
if you really only ski park and groomed and hardly any pow, get one of the first 3, depending on preference.
if you ski a bit of everything (park, groomers, crud, pow) get one of the 2nd group depending on preference
if you ski mostly all mtn (groomers, crud, pow) then look at the last two.
I have Chronics from 05/06 and after a year of skiing them they are still crazy stiff
way stiffer then my pipecleaners
(which arent that stiff actually)
fischer addict pros when i looked at them in shop they felt pretty stiff
i just had some on my noodles and it was noodlegasmic!!!
Take a look at the Elan Mo2 (if you can find 'em anymore) you can push them hard!
I just picked up a pair of 185's
Also the Scott P3 fit your description
I used to race and I ski east coast, I have both of the above and love them
the stiffest ski by far is the Stockli Stormrider DP Pro Skis...if you think you are bad ass ski the 201...bye the way it has a 34.3 TR....
haha you can definatly still hit rails with pipecleaners
thanks or all the advice guys, im going to go inot my shop and check some out
the wall replaced the karma. pes are not all that stiff. I find they are actually pretty soft and easy to butter. (I'm 6' and 170 lbs) They also get chattery going really fast on crud found on the east coast. Karmas, when I demo'd them at the end of teh day at Sugarloaf in the spring were way better at speed and in choppy conditions than the PEs.
you can hit rails on pipe cleaners. its not a law not to.
mute + japan = MUTAN!
When in doubt, style it out
k2 public enemy, line chronics, best bet
grab your glocks when you see 2pac
not really the same but i was flexing some in the store and they werent very stiff at all....

the base on the pipe cleaners is super fast, but they had to sacrifice something for that. their base isn't very tough and would get worn out pretty quick on rails
