        Overall

        Don't be lazy, read it :]
        Any other questions feel free to PM me!

        Performance

        This ski surprised the hell out of me. Much softer and playful flew then i suspected while still performing really bomber on super wide GS turns. Very sound on your feet because the flex goes just the right way and doesn't get very shaky like larger skis do. The early rise and what i believe is early taper are a cool added feature and i'm sure can make powder turns effortless but i didn't ride them in powder conditions. I can predict how these skis can handle in many situations because i have tested skis in the same category from Liberty, Armada, Line, Ninthward, and Volkl. These were literally at the top of the rankings and if you want a ski in this category i would highly consider demoing a pair.
        Riding them switch was interesting. They were mounted at more of a free ride stance but when riding switch they handled very good and reverting from switch to forward was very easy but just turning from forward to Switch is a task that takes a few tries to master. It's actually kinda hard and pretty shaky (but this could have been from the mounting point).
        The ski was a lot lighter than Volkl but it still goes back to what binding you put on it.

        Design

        The ski i'm reviewing was actually the '09-'10

        Value

        Definitely a good deal, ski performs amazing for it's category. Amazing work from Line.

        Fit

        Perfect size for me

        Characteristics

        I have lost all ability at calling ski flexes besides comparing them by means of other skis and that one noodle an that one too stiff ski. I was surprised when i skied the Motherships because they are way softer than i ever imagined. My main ski right now that fits into this category i the Ninthward Rory Silva Pro which i think is considered a soft ski from what i hear but the Motherships are softer than these but it is not at all a day thing. The flex seemed very smooth compared with other skis like this but didn't hurt it.

        Durability

        Not too sure on the durability but the ones i rode for a day had been used all this past season by a guy that is pretty rough on his gear and they appeared to hold up pretty good which impresses me considering his Seth Pistols and Scratch BC's are pretty haggard.
