LINE Chronic vs Blend
which one if you, NS community, had to choose?
having owned both (2013 chronics in 171 and 2015 blends in 185) the blend is way more soft and buttery, slightly heavier given the width, and I assume abit less stable at the same length. The chronic was a bit stiffer but not too much, and was a bit easier to throw around (could be either length of waste width effecting it).
Construction wise they are pretty much the same ski with different dimensions and flex, If you want all mountain and powder performance, or just like to butter around a lot, get the blend. If you want a park ski and would rather spin a lot and have more support, go with the chronic

The blends are wider, so they are always fun to rip around

the blends are crazy flexible and really light so personally I would get blends
it depends on what you want to use the ski for. if you plan to ski all mountain and park, the chronic. if you plan to pretend you are delorme, blend.
For all your graphic design needs:
super similar construction with the waist width being the biggest difference. the Blend is more buttery! thanks for considering! -jm
For 50/50 park all mountain - chronic
Any more all mountain - blend
I have chronics but they are my pure park driver and I love them, but if I had to be out of the park with them a lot, I would pick the blend just for the versatility
