Invaders were def noodles. Did you have the OG ones with the pink bases? If so, I cant believe they didnt delaminate on you!
As other have said, the line afterbang is the direct replacement to the invader. Maybe take a look at the k2 domains, they are soft, and have rocker in the tips and tails. That makes the ski more playful and easier to butter ect.
