Need HELP Line Honey Bee vs Faction Prodigy Series
Hi! So I‘m a girl from Austria thinking about buying skis for the 19/20 season already. I got into park skiing 2 year ago and I‘m riding the Armada ARV 84s at the moment. I really like them but want to get another ski for next year. I was thinking about getting the Line Honey Bees or the Faction Skis Prodigy 1.0X or 2.0X. What‘s your opinion on those skis? I would say I ski 70% park, 30% groomers - I‘m not into powder or backcountry at all. I‘m looking for a ski that‘s playful for getting better at the park especially boxes and has a soft to medium flex for some decent nose butters and also fun while hitting some side bumps on the piste.
I've ridden both the Honey Badgers and the Prodigy 2.0's. The Lines are super playful and soft, and CHEAP. The factions felt too sluggish around the resort.
thanks for the fast reply! Sluggish? Why exactly? Don‘t they turn quick and easy enough? I‘m worried that the honey bees/badgers might be too soft. And what about durability? I heard that lines tend to chip really easy

I guess for my riding style the Factions felt slow and not up to the hype. But if you don't want something super soft then maybe go with the Factions. They have great stability and felt good over jumps.
