LINE or 4FRNT?
Prophet 90 or 4frnt MSP, I am looking for an ALL-MTN Twin with Pow capabilities... might take in park but want something that can rip switch (pow/groomed), carve like a champ, and float.
Skiing the West only
chronic blend. mainly because line's warranty is guaranteed to be better than 4frnts.
i heart el nino. free carwashes in the winter!
i'd go w/ 4frnts, i've never had bad luck w/ them. the only times they've broken is when they clearly should because of me being an idiot!
Don't know about this years 4Frnt MSP construction but I've seen the ski break about halfway between the toepiece of the binding and tip of the ski in about 3 different cases. Different conditions from East Coast hardpack to Whistler fresh. Seen enough to know that I'll never buy a pair.
what would you recommend then? I have done quite a bit of research a lot of skis, talked to a ton of people, and have not found a ski that most people say rocks as an ALL-MTN POW, carves good, etc...
Fischer Atua or Kehua. I skied the Atua last weekend (my bro has a pair) and loved them. If I only had one pair of skis, I would definitely consider them. Lots of pop and stiff enough that it blasts through crud well. More sidecut than I'm used to (ARGs and JP vs Juliens) but a great ski when I'm out ripping groomers and occasionally popping into the trees with my girlfriend.
Comparable in size to the Vicious in the 186, more comparable to the MSP and Prophet 90 in the 177 length.
As a side note, fischer x17 bindings are fucking solid.

Go with LINE. They are a far bigger company and thus quality control is greater and warranties will be easier.
