Blend 2016, anyone?
HereÂ´s the deal. I have shredded 4frnt switchblades two seasons now and destroyed one edge last season. Really loved the skis, but I've never tried other skis than 4frnt.
I really want to try some line skis this year, like the chronics or Blend. Anyone tried the Blend 2016? Is it light, playful, buttery, stable? And how long are your skis compared to you?
I want a ski that's flex and buttery, but light enough to really play, and a bit poppy so i can throw front flips like everywhere.....
I believe the 16 Blends are the same as previous years, so basiacly just a larger softer version of the Chronics. I would go with the Chronics, they are softer enough to nose or tail press around(buttering has to do with you boots, strength and skill and less with the stiffness of your ski) but it's still poppy enough to have some life to it. Also I haven't learned to nollie frontflip but, I believe that it's easiest with a medium flex ski, not a super soft one.
