snowpigsorry to hijack this thread, but I was looking at exactly the same 2 models. I have the Line Blend and it's great in soft snow and some powder, but on bad days - hard pack, ice, rain, slush - it's not so good. So I was thinking to get a narrower and stiffer ski for those days (but not too stiff, still playful and butterable).
I ski some park, but not that much. Mostly fooling about the natural terrain around the slopes - sidebanks, trees, etc.
The ARV 86 and Prodigy 1.0 seem to be the obvious choices, I can't really figure out the difference between them?
I was also looking at the Line Sick Day 88 , but this might be too directional?
I stand by my previous suggestion of the soul riders
narrower, a bit stiffer, still playful and park oriented
nordica probably isnt core they used to be the ace of spades i think and skis were the shit back in the day
alao the top sheet is pretty boring
