        Overall

        Line is a great company and they really outdid themselves on this ski.

        Performance

        This ski is absolutely amazing for BC and perfect for anything but the deepest powder. It holds an edge on groomers very well and is nimble despite its size.

        Design

        The graphics are really cool looking, especially the bases. I get dozens of compliments every time I ski.

        Value

        They are pricey but well worth it.

        Durability

        I have used them one season with only minor topsheet damage which resulted from a failed 720 attempt. They hold up pretty well.

        Overall

        Unbelievable ski. Can be used anywhere on the mountain to do anything. This is most definitely a top choice, especially when having a 1 pair ski quiver.

        Performance

        These skis most definitely lived up to my expectations. They can ski literally anything on the mountain with comfort, from groomers to crud, from pow to park,  and from ice to backcountry. They are unbelievably versatile and easy to ski.  Whenever I step into these, I feel as if I can do anything that I try.

        Design

        The graphics are sick. Enough said. I've gotten so many compliments on them that it's ridiculous.

        Value

        I bought them this year, so they went for $800. I got a staff discount cause my buddy. But considering other comparable skis' prices, they're not terribly expensive. But definitely an investment.

        Fit

        I have the 182s and I'm 6' tall. The bacons fit me perfectly. Also, the rocker (which is sizable, but not ridiculous) shortens the skis. Because of this, the first time I ever skied them I felt like I could turn on a dime. You practically float through turns.

        Characteristics

        The flex on the FSBs is relatively medium, especally for what it is: an all mountain ski.

        Durability

        The edges of the plastic started to curl and flake off a little.. I need to widen my stance but otherwise they have held up great.

        Overall

        The Bacon is a super soft and playful ski that still does a great job holding up on the hard pack. The extra base material underfoot was killer as soon as I jumped out of the trees and back on to the trail to ride down to the lift, it's the only pow ski that I've been able to carve GS turns on. That said, this ski is truly a powder ski. The early rise and early taper combined with the 115mm waist absolutely shredded the snow when it got steep and deep. This is the first ski that has actually allowed me to be in an aggressive, forward skiing position and float in the pow at the same time; no need to be back seat with these boards. The last thing that I want to highlight with these skis is their versatility. This season I took them in the trees, on groomers, off cliffs, in the park, and best of all, pond skimming. While defined as a powder ski, the Sir Francis Bacon is really a ski that can fulfill every skier's needs.

        Performance

        Hell yeah. Super durable, versatile, and playful. This ski was exactly what I wanted.

        Value

        For $650 they were a fair price. At $475, the current asking value for an 2010-2011 model, these skis are the bees knees.

        Durability

        No core shots so far, and they've seen some solid action.
