ok here you go. the mastermind is cap construction so not that stable at speeds, or holding edge, not good dampening, and durability is not quite as good as sidewall or hybrid but it is really light. it is lines softest(overall but afterbang butterzones are softer in places) and lightest ski. it is an all terrain partial twin so it isnt center but line makes it so the all terrain twins ride good at center. it doesnt do great in powder because it is only 85 underfoot and a little too soft.it is super fun for just a mess around ski though. overall though i would go for the chronic cryptonite, it is made much better and the mastermind is a price point and begginer ski. the chronic is stiffer flex, 92 underfoot, has better core, sintered base(really fast) instead of extruded(slow), sidewall construction, and is what most of the line pro team uses so it ripps in park and will do much better in pow and all over mountain. and depending on where u live i would even go with the blend. the blend is better for the west coast but if u live in the east coast or mid west i would go with the chronic cryptonite. the blend is a little softer then the chronic and is 100 underfoot and has all of the other advantages of the chronic just a little wider and softer. hope this helps u out.
