for beginner skis id have to go with the 1080, or the thruster or w.e is now. it served me very well, and is a nice light ski to learn to spin with. other than that it really depends on what kind of flex you like, i really like a soft flex so i ski invaders, and i love em. If you have heard about all the problems with them, they are warrentying any pair sent to them (heard this from one of their sponsored dudes) so buy line cuz they actually help out.
anyways so either the salomon or the lines, line u can see at www.lineskis.com
