Help with twin tip skis

Hey im looking at buying some twin tip skis and i was wondering if anybody had any advice. i ski in the park a little but spend most of my time on the rest of the mountain. i would like to start skiing in the park more tho. are the K2 Silencers good skis?? also, are the K2 disorderlys only for the park or are they a good all mountain ski too? and which are better, the K2 silencers or the Rossignol S2?
Currently i have some older Head monsters. are the 3 choices i listed above comparable to the mosters or will i be disapointed by any of them?? if so what are a good all mountain twin tip ski for under $700canadian? thanks.

Redveg - Scott Punishers.

Strongbad - Line Invaders (this is if you want more of a park ski!(try pick up last seasons model, look better and its pretty much the same ski.)). I believe this years model is $299 or so. Salomon STH16 could be a good option, but they are pricey.

hey, so i went to a ski shop near my place and the guy working there told me that the K2 disorderlys are mainly a park ski. he said that the K2 extremes are a better all mountain twin tip. He also highly recomended salomon 1080s. I bought the 1080s and tried them out over christmas and i really liked them. they were 700 canadian with bindings. i would recomend them to anybody looking for an all mountain twin tip.

You shouldn't really post a recomendation when you initially asked for advice... but... whatever

Armada or 4Frnt my friend. Also, dumonts salomons are GREAT ! Other than that, K2 are also good skies. However, these questions always pop up. "What are the best skies?.. " As long as your not a professional skier the brands have very little to say and you usually dont feel any difference riding cheap skis og expencive skies. Just buy your self some skies for a fair price and ride on them. The day you come to x-games, then you should start thinking about what brand, their weight, lenght, speed, air, pop etc etc.

Good luck on finding skis! I suggest you find some used ones, their usually cheap and also a good bargain. Search on google, go to ebay, skistore, skateloot, evogear etc.

Hope you find your skiis!

I ride on Armada ARV's, they're good for all-mountain, powder and park, but can struggle to hold an edge on hard-packed groomers. But they're 92 underfoot so for what is gained in powder skiing is sacrificed for groomers.

Salomon 1080's are excellent skis, rode on them for a season last year, very versatile. I found the Lords to lack good edging, but they were ok. Dynastar troublemakers are an awesome groomer and park ski, but i find they lack a bit of power off-piste and through powder. Rossignol scratch are decent too, moreso in powder and off-piste.

Anyway, thats my 2c
