Twintip Skis

I am looking into investing in some new twintip skis. I am a ski racer and i like the stiffness of race skis, i ski on Fischer Worldcup SL and GS RC4s. I also enjoy skiing the powder and the mountain when i go out West. I am looking for a pair of twin tips that are decent in the park but also will take nice turns when i tell them to like race skis do and that can ski powder. I am a very good skier and am 5'7'' 145lbs. My current twintips are Rossignol Scratchs and they are way to soft and dont turn like i want them to. Any suggestions are appretiated. Thanks

i would suggest the line anthem it isnt as fat as the prophet but is a better all mountain twin tip or the line chronic but if you are going to be skiing a lot of powder go with the prophet 100 or the anthems.

ya not many twintips are very stiff just becus the park you want a soft ski and it is fun out of the park you can just do alot more with them when it comes to jibbing outin the backcountry and urban rails and stuff. but i mean if you arnt going to be doing any tricks or anything you wont need a soft twintip. but ya i would suggest the prophets for you then but i am not sure how stiff they are i dont no if line makes a stiff ski.

here is a link that i found the volkl skis are stiffer twin tips.
thw bridge and wall are slimmer, mantra and gotama are wide but all are killer twintips with stiffness.

The Atomic Kongur is a Backcountry/Telemark ski with twin tips that is great in powder, crud, or hard pack.
