mike_masuck27I'm looking to get a pair of 2015-2016 chronics this summer. However, I've read on countless threads that they're about as durable as riding on a sheet of glass. Is it true that line skis are not durable?? If so, any recommendations on what skis I should get? I have a budget of around 400-500 bucks. Thanks!
I'm on my 2nd pair this year.
My first pair started delaminating after 3 days (the edge was separating from the sidewall). I think it must have been a manufacturing defect.
If you're solely skiing park, make sure to DETUNE. Detuning should definitely decrease your chance of delam earlier on.
Apart from the durability issues I have encountered, it's a really fun ski. You should be fine, get them if you like them, as they should be a good choice.
"If you think about it, park skiing is like a religion. We go to worship grounds (mountains) or even have our own shrines at home. We worship idols (tom wallz, t hallz, etc). Perform ancient rituals (backflips, shotgun beers, lip blind tru) and wear our religious garm (tall ts and full tilts)"-CHORIZO
