Should I get the line blend???
I've been looking in to a lot of skis, and am looking for a park And powder ski that can handle groomers. I really like the looks of the line blend because of its versatility. It have heard it is bad on groomers and very chattery. Should I get this ski? Do you have any other recommendations?
maybe im wrong but as i heard blend is NOT bad on groomers
im looking for the same style ski and chek these. shreditor 102 , line blend , on3p jeffrey , jeronimo , candide 3.0, rossi sickle, atomic blog.
Blend is supposed to be great as a soft park and powder ski. Fine in groomers, but keep in mind that at higher speeds it chatters.
Others like the on3p jmo that are stiffer ( livelier too) will be better at speed
Ok thanks! So jmo or blend? Btw I'm 5'7 125 lbs
Well jmo is a better ski all around, including durability. But because of your size/weight the blends might actually be a good stiffness for you.
Jmo is a better all a rounder, blend is cheaper and softer/more buttery. Choose whichever type of ski that suites you better
Sorry for all the questions, but I just checked out the line chronic, and they look sick! Can they handle powder at all? Not like the stuff that's up to your knees, but a good 5-9 inches?
Any ski can handle powder, but you will obviously have to put more effort into skiing powder on a narrower ski with less rocker. Blends will kill in that amount of pow since they have more rocker and not as much camber as the chronics!
Thanks for the info but I think I'm gonna go with the chronics. I heard they can ski a bit of pow and in 2013-2014 version they added early rise to float in pow. Recommend any sizes? 5'7 btw
