J Ski's "Friend" vs Line Pollard Opus
Simple question. I'm torn between these two skis. I own a pair of Line Blends that I intend to keep using for low snow pack days and in the park. I ski at Stevens Pass, WA and I'm looking for a playful pow ski that has full rocker on the tail and tip. I would like to stick to these two skis, but suggestions are welcomed!
I may possibly wait for a sale on the opus when it goes on sale at Evo, making it a little more favorable as a cheaper option.
Friend: - More playful all over the mountain
- More stable on groomers
- Can be used as an all mountain ski if necessary
- Made in North America
Opus: - 4mm more waist width
- better flotation?
- Made in China
- Cheaper on sale post season
im not quite sure which one out of the two but i will say that the friend is probably more durrable also will still be good all mountain.
but i would reccomend a bunch of other skis.
the bentchetler is sick and can land switch good in pow
candide 3.0 is probably the lightest pow/big mountain ski that i have ever been on but if your looking for a ski that performs best on super deep pow days the candide 4.0
also the 4frnt crj is good its a shame it isnt being sold anymore from what ive heard but the hoji is good
also the armada jj triple j and norwalk are great imo
and i have also heard thta the battala spriggs pro model is dope! i really want a pair but a 183 is way to big for me and omfg the graphic is probably one of the sickest graphics i have seen (there is alot of sick graphics tho)
All times are Eastern (-5)
