        Overall

        I've been struggling with LINE customer service since early december to
        get this straightened out, both through the local shop and the local
        rep. They had no more Prophet 100's in 179, so they were supposed to
        ship me a pair of next years skis (I was told this in late december)
        and still no skis. I know they are just starting to produce them, but
        the local rep has had next years skis for 2 weeks now (on 2/18).
        Hopefully this will get resolved soon. I have not been personally contacted yet, which is where I believe the customer service is lacking.


        I gave the ski a 9/10. The 1 point was lost due to the topsheet durability. The experience with LINE's customer service has not effected my opinion of the ski itself at all.

        Performance

        This ski never stops amazing me. It can go from carving big GS turns to playing in the pow, in the same run. With the Marker Griffons, they turn over sooo easy for the width. In the powder, they perform like any other fat ski, floaty and smooth. I ski in the northeast, so it can go from powder to ice within a matter of hours. The versatility is great on these. I've used these in the park (minus rails...) and they have a pretty low swing weight. The softness is also forgiving if you land a bit backseat. I guess you could take them on rails, but I wouldn't dare try it.

        Design

        I love the topsheet design. I've had lots of compliments on them. The base is very plain though. I wish there was more of a design. It's almost like they did it last minute.

        Value

        Excellent value for the price. Line continues to produce grade A products.

        Fit

        I purchased in a 179. Great size for me (6'1"). 186 was too long for me when I looked at them.

        Characteristics

        Pretty good amount of tail flex. Gives a lot of extra to play with.

        Durability

        This is the one fallback that I have noticed. My skis came damaged, right from the manufacturer. I noticed a section on the tail of the right ski that had become delaminated when I picked them up from mounting. I'm not sure if this happened in shipping, or in the shop. Read about this in overall.

        Also have gotten a few cuts in the topsheet, right to the core. Sort of disapointing. I thought they would have a more durable topsheet.

        Overall

        Straight 10. I thought my last 98mm underfoot skis were good, these blow them away. Super stable, awesome in soft snow, and can absolutely SLAY extremely hardpacked groomers. Even very good in icy conditions.

        Performance

        This ski absolutely kills it. Best ski I have ever skied on. The flex is damp enough to be smooth, while the ski can hold a solid edge anywhere on the mountain. Even on glare ice, the ski would bite in and keep you in control. This ski likes going fast and ripping carves. It did not do as well in quick mogul style turns. I mounted them at Line's recommended spot and may move it up 2cm. I skied mostly very hardpacked groomers on them but found some minor soft snow, and as expected, they did very well in that.

        Design

        Graphics-wise, they are spot on. This ski looks awesome.

        Value

        A little higher priced at $599, but totally worth it.

        Fit

        186cm. I don't think I would want smaller skis. I may move the mount up an inch to make it quicker in the trees.

        Characteristics

        Medium flex, but torsional flex is very solid.

        Durability

        Just one day on them so far, so I cannot comment. These skis are my all-mountain/powder skis though, so they won't be seeing any park duty aside from maybe a jump every now and again.
