switchlip2106 isn’t that wide you’ll be good. Maybe look at the wide plus if you want something stiffer

isaacwrongi was riding invaders at 83mm and future spins at 86mm 4+ years. Have always been big into rails over jumps too. Been ripping the give'rs at 100mm under foot the past 2 seasons. The way I grip rails/swap has changed a little but it makes sliding bigger rails so much enjoyable with the added beef underfoot. get wides
DomRichardYeah i’ve been on surface odysseys with 96 underfoot and they didn’t really feel too different on rails compared to my friends wet cactis
+TbernatovichSounds like you just answered your own question with this one.
QuaggyGet the Wides
I've had Wets since 2015 and they're solid if you don't plan on getting out of the park/groomers/side-hits too often. They hold up in ~8-12 inches of Montana powder suprisingly well, but get bogged down in ~3-5 inches of PNW concrete. They're a weapon on rails but once you get into bigger jumps things get sketchy on the landings if you're not perfect.
The Wide does everything the Wet does, but better... More stable at high speeds, just as capable on rails, less "squirrely" on landings and you can get into some pretty deep snow without worry. It's my go-to for park, cliffs, powder, groomers.
I spent more time on my Wets than Hellbents while in Big Sky, but that was before the Wide ski was a thing.
Tl;dr: can't go wrong with either, but the Wide is more versatile.

DomRichardyeah just wondering if the wides would fix the squirrelly issue
