Line Chronic or Elan puzzle tbt or...
Hey NS, so I went to my local ski shop to look for some new gear this season. I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs, intermediate skier. My home mountain is Blue mountain, Ontario, Canada (east-central?).
I'm looking for all-mountain skis, but I would also like to start trying out the park (mainly jumps). I've been looking at the Sir Francis Bacons but the local shop guy here said they were more of a pow ski. He directed me to the Elan puzzle tbt's and the line chronics. He said he preferred the elan's as they were more durable. I've done a ton of research on Line skis and I like them as a brand, and never considered elan. Is he right? Should I go with the elan's? Any other recommendations? Thanks!
go with the line chronics its an all mountian ski it also has early rise so you could ride a little pow with them and they are a good ski for jumps there not to stiff or to soft
I have the Chronics, they're pretty fun but durability is not the best.
The edge of the ski was delaminating from the sidewall only after 5 days of light riding in the park. Pretty sure it was a faulty pair..
Warranty (Australian) is good, they hooked me up with a new pair.
When you're with the squad, go for the quad
