how are they for all mountain skiing? i like to ski fast and i want a stiffer ski. i had the 1260's a few years back and they were noodles. what are the mavericks and the mike nick's like in comparison? please don't tell me to go into a shop and flex them because i don't have that option (i'm mailordering from overseas), and i'm sick of trying to wade through the company press about 'progressive all mtn flex', i just wanna know are they soft (like the 1260) or stiffer (like the troublemakers and public enemys).
also, is the darkside a twintip? it doesn't really specify that on the website.
