Just looking for some opinions, I am 5.9 and 154lbs I am from Europe and like to ski park and powder. I am still pretty much a beginner in the park. There is usually always some piste cruising involved though. I was looking for a versatile ski and have been pretty inclined towards the Line Blend 2011 model. Other options are the K2 Kung Fujas, Rossignol S3 and Line Blend 2009 model because I can get a deal on it.
I was wondering how well will the new Line Blends handle the hard pack for carving and holding an edge. Also how will the new flex and early rise affect it? The rocker seems to be pretty mild compared to the other options. The other 2 skis also seem to be available at more reasonable prices too.

Oceanography?!?! Is that like pornography in the ocean?
What if skiing had some horrible side effect; like it gave u mad pimply balls.
And what if snowboarding was the only cure?
Fair enough you are right. I am just trying to get some more opinions and some more specific answers. Sorry. I'm undecisive and probably going to be spending quite a bit of money so still haven't decided.
get the s3s (get last years cheap, i think they are 250 euros on sport conrad) better on groomed than the new blend, stiffer flex too, more rocker, early taper.. Overall i thought it was the best ski of the ones you are talking about..
i'd prefer last years obsetheds if you can find em though
there's a certain point where it neither looks good nor functions properly...that's when you know you look steezy - no_steeze

If you are doing legit powder and park, I'd go with Armada Halos or Alpha 1s. The rocker is going to make it float on pow, and be super good in the park.
