yet, most of them are equal or worse than a normal sidecut ski when skiing switch. Honestly, I do not believe that symmetrical skis are at all better than regular sidecut, and that it is a total sales pitch. If you have ever skied Chronics, Pipe Cleaners, Troubles, TNKs, etc. switch, you know that they ski better than Anthems or Invaders switch. There are some great symmetrical skis(disorderlys, Jibs) but that doesn't mean they wouldn't have been better if the sidecut was changed. People who suck at skiing switch, or suck at park, want a gear reason why they suck, when in reality, they just suck. They do not realize they suck, so they go and find the boots/skis/bindings labeled "made for park" with the most park features, and buy those.
Invaders arent that bad for skiing switch cause hey look what happened to me the guy mounted them backwards and refused to remount them and i didnt have any extra cash so now im skiing the ski switch when im actually going forward but it still works great
