Line Blends vs. ON3P Kartel 98
I need a solid park ski. I like something that's a little bit wider than the average park ski and pretty flexible. I've heard good things about the Blends, but was thinking they might be too wide/heavy for me. I then found the ON3P Kartel 98's. Any reviews would be appreciated. How light, durable, and flexible is it? Thanks.
I don't have Blend weights, but I'd be betting they're the lighter of the two. Kartels are going to be burlier - not so much on flex, but construction, edge, core and base to be specific. Shape and flex wise, both are very similar, so for me it comes to the ingredients that go into the ski to decide which is best for me - ones a product entirely made in the USA and the other arrives in shrink wrap on a boat. Construction, materials and cost aside, both skis are great skis - you'll find people here willing to rave about both.
