I've had bad luck with Line. The edges blew out in both pairs of Lines within a year of having em which sucks cause every1 swears by them and they have some of the sickest graphics imo. who knows maybe just a freak coincidence, but now i'm afraid to buy a new pair.
Im really impressed with Armada. started skiing em 2 years ago and after beating the shit out of them, they held up.
