i have looked at moment tahoes, surface watch lifes, line blends, and a few others. i am 5'10" so dont want anything too long (preferably 170-176). i dont want something very stiff either (i want softer than my walls). im on the east coast also so something that holds an edge well for carving on ice. help me out ns

I had the 08-09 line blands, and if you are looking for a east coast one ski quiver they should fit your bill. They are fairly reasonably priced compared to other skis, so you would have to take out a loan.
i have line blends and i use mine for park and love them. they are stiffer so they are good for hitting big jumps and being 100 underfoot its only more surface to land on. i find them to work really well on rails and i dont have any problems spinning on/off and doing switch ups. the only thing is that they chip on rails easily but mine have held up pretty well.
k2 extremes. is your best option i would say. i own them as part of of my quiver and love them, ski them as my "east coast day" ski here on the west coast. i have been on all the other ones you have asked about and hands down the extreme would win. if you want something fun and different get the one life from surface not the greatest in all those catagorys but i think would be alot of fun to play around on and never have a "boring" day
