CincherI thought this would be a fun question to ask: what's the longest you've kept/ridden a pair of skis?
For me, I've had my 2009 Line Anthems since......well, 2009. They're in relatively good condition still, only minor scratches on the topsheet, and a couple small gouges on the bases. Compared to my brother, I also don't push myself as hard to land new tricks, which also might attribute to their condition.
Recently though, I've wondered if it's time to look for some new park planks, as I feel like a stiffer ski might help me progress better. Although, I could probably overcome that with practice.
DorianFI still ride my 2009 anthems on a regular basis. I love those skis, absolutely bomb proof. they have taken everything i can throw at them (and i dont ride anything easy).They have been my primary ski since 2009, they are delaminating in numerous places, but i just cut it off and reseal it with eopxy, and the bases have more p-tex than original base. They are on binding set number 2. i just cant ever see myself parting with them until i am unable to fix them anymore.
ive bought skis since then, but i jsut keep coming back to these.
..... seriously considering buying some old (but brand new) travelling circus skis off ebay so i can keep riding the same thing. BEST SKI EVER MADE.
HC__skierRegarding the Line Anthem 2009 it says:
"Vertical carbon fiber stringers add pop and energy to this 93mm wide monster."
Anyone know of other skis that have these stringers.. what are they exactly? Sounds interesting.
HC__skierThat's awesome, thanks, I watched the vid on it.
Also, the Line Afterbang (anyone got these?) is constructed like a skate deck.
I want my next carve skis (and snowboard) to be warp-proof and that looks like it could do the trick. I wonder what Line would think.
HC__skierI had some skis custom built by I D R I S and they warped. (pine core, oak sidewalls - very light though)

w_skierhave you been living under a rock, for how often you post your shit on ns I would assume you at least know what the afterbangs are
