ok. so im getting into twin tips and just sorda looking around. i found a pair of line invaders 171 with bindings (i think the 05/06 model). im looking for a cheap durable ski. i've heard these skis are not vary durable cuz the delam. i mainly do some all mountain carving and some jumps here and there. not into park yet but we'll see. im 6' 240 so i em a bigger guy. let me know if ya guys know a cheap durable ski. thanks.
you are too heavy to ski invaders or anthems because they are so soft. but the next choice would be something stiffer like volkl walls or ledges (i think somebody mentioned them^), but those are a little pricier. even el rays would be a little soft. also, i love my ar6s which are on the stiffer side
go with the 179 PE's my friend, I picked up the 05/06 model for about $230 with tax. They are AWESOME. Im also a bigger guy (6'1", 215 lbs.) and I love them. They're stiff by today's standards, but its easy for big guys to flex them if needed. its a legit ski and you should seriously consider it.
fyi, for bindings, get anything with a DIN of about 15 and make sure theyre metal. I reccomend the Mojo 15
