Candides are a pretty tight ski, nice, mad trix are quite heavy but they're both pretty solid really

I have the candides, but I have never ridden the madtrix. From what I have heard, the Mad Trix are better if you are in pow a lot because of the wider boards. However, the Candides feel great in the air and still are great on the all mountain. Unlike most twins, the Candides can grip on ice due to their sidecut and stiff flex, better in the bumps too. You definitely can't go wrong with the Candide unless you are a looking for a powder ski.
Hrm.. well I was riding both yesterday. MadTrix are alot more responsive and from what I hear more durable. Haven't used them too long myself so I cant really say. As for candides, I'm already missing 6in of edge on one ski and just grinding away the ptex. Not too durable there.. :(
