Line Blend 2010 vs. Surface Double Time 2011
So I ski mostly park, but obviously whenever powder hits the East Coast I'll be in the woods. I *sometimes* go out west, but not very often at all. I used to have Line Anthems which were awesome because they were kind of wide (93mm waist) and very soft.
From what I've heard the Double Times are pretty stiff, more of a jump ski than a jib ski. I believe the waist on those is 90mm. The Blend has a 100mm waist, which I can assume is great in the powder, unsure of the flex of those though. Point is, which is the better choice? Maybe there's another ski I'm overlooking?
Throw me suggestions!
I guess the most obvious answer to most of you guys will be the Double Times because I ski mostly park, but I tend to stay away from super technical tricks so maybe a ski with a wide waist and a little bit of rocker would be fun in the park...
How much do you weigh? Height? A better choice would be to look into the Watch Life and the Blend. The Watch Life is a bit stiffer than the Blends, regular camber profile. I see a lot of people on those for park too. Pretty solid all mountain ripper. Also, Surface will be coming out with a new ski called the One Time next season. 95 waist, and will have rocker added to it.
I weigh around 170 at 5'11". I'm really leaning toward the Blend right now.
I thought those were coming out this year or did they only have a couple pairs?
About half of my nightmares involve me snapping my skis or watching my outerwear fall to shreds.
Not sure. I think they went back for more testing this season. They'll be released next season
i really liked the way the blends skied. stiff enough but not too stiff. really a great all around ski
i definitely scope out the situation, it's not like i hit the lights and swing my cock around until i strike something warm, i'm not a fucking oil prospector... -drew
All times are Eastern (-5)
