2013 Surface Double Time or 2013 Line Chronic
Hey guys just wanted to see which ski you prefer, the surface double time or the line chronic ? I will will be using them as my park ski, I hit everything in the park. I've ridden the double time in the past but I want to know more about the chronic. Any input is appreciated, thanks
chronic is 92 mm in the waist, tip and tail rocker along with thin tip and tail which allows it to have a light swing weight and makes the ski a little more playful in the tip and tail. Camber under foot which gives you pop and energy you look for in a ski, cap wall construction, line claims it helps with edges not pulling out. That's the chronic in a few words, great ski, 4 of my bosses all different skiers skied it last year at the on snow and all came back and said they loved it. It seems like a great ski, I was on the fence between chronics and kinks, ended up with a kink because i'm not gonna be in the park too much. I don't like the double times honestly, I had a pair come into the shop I work at like two months ago, they felt like 2 by 4's under foot with a super thin tip and tail which makes it a little playful, just not a big fan of surface, but that's my opinion. I'd say the chronic, but i'm biased

Just rode my chronics yesterday for the first time. It was the most fun I've ever had on skis, these skis are loaded with pop super lightweight I threw a 7 off a at most 10 ft jump. They are super playful in the tip and tail but underfoot the are extremely stable.
Thanks for the input guys, I guess my biggest concern is stability. I'm 6'4" and 200 lbs so that's an issue I run into frequently
hit the nail on the head right there.
