I was really stoked to able to purchase some sir Francis bacons this year but then my brother told me that line skis are shit and not durable. He said the same for all china made skis and I just want to know if this is true. I was really looking forward to the bacons but if they are shit then I guess i will buy a pair of on3p which are supposedly super durable.
Just... no. Line skis are great. One of the better brands, especially among the bigger ones. But companies like ON3P make their skis in the USA and are based around a high quality product. I'm trying out ON3P this winter after skiing line for a few years. I doubt I'll be disappointed.
If you go ON3P I'd look at the Jeffrey. It will be comparable to the SFB.
