Just looking for some opinions, I am 5.9 and 154lbs I am from Europe and like to ski park and powder. I am still pretty much a beginner in the park. There is usually always some piste cruising involved though. I was looking for a versatile ski and have been pretty inclined towards the Line Blend 2011 model. Other options are the K2 Kung Fujas, Rossignol S3 and Line Blend 2009 model because I can get a deal on it.
I was wondering how well will the new Line Blends handle the hard pack for carving and holding an edge. Also how will the new flex and early rise affect it? The rocker seems to be pretty mild compared to the other options. The other 2 skis also seem to be available at more reasonable prices too.
