I am happy with the skis that I purchased. The price point was very good. They are very fun for jibs, they are not as strong on the jumps. Butters are very easy and effortless on these skis. The only problem is that when I bought these skis my style was 65% jib 35% jumps, now I have changed to 50/50 jibs/jumps. Now I want new skis.
Overall happy with these skis
Besides the predicted delaminating of all the tips, these were surprisingly fun skis. I spent most of my time in the park, with a a few pow encounters on the days after it freshly snowed. Overall I found the skis worked great on freshly groomed snow as well as ice, but because of their exposed wooden sidewall, slush and powder made them a little squirrley.The basses and sidewalls held their own through beatings all season. They are a little on the heavier side, but the poppiness compensates for their added weight. The top sheet, would have been more appealing to a teenager or younger skier.
Overall these are fun skis that I would recommend to anyone beginning in the park and not planning on banging the skis around too aggressively. Also, I found that cold weather boat epoxy can help solve the problem of the delaminating edges.
The Line Afterbang is the ultimate park ski. With features such as the skate deck construction, carbon ollie band, fatty edges, extruded bases, symmetrical flex, and the butter zone; this is truly the best park ski.
I used this ski last season and I loved it. They are super durable but also lightweight. With the butter zone I could butter all over the mountain and not worry about breaking the skis. The carbon ollie band made the skis extremely poppy. I could easily hop onto rails and boxes without a ramp. When carving hard at mach 10 speed they were stable. I never felt like the ski was going to do something I did not want it to do. These skis cut through the crud with ease. However, the one thing this ski did not do very well was float in the powder. Overall it is a confidence inspiring ski and if you get the chance you should buy one.

The "Line Afterbang" is the best ski I've ever ridin from the pop to the way it holds up on rails to the sick design on top and bottom its just a good ski to ride in. But there are some downsides, the weight of the ski can be an issue if you are looking to be doing more jumps and throwing bigger spins this wouldn't be my first choice but if you just want a good looking ski that is buttery as shit on rails and is for the price a solid park ski all round them this is your ski.Ratings:
My first park ski, this ski is fun as hell to just cruise around on. It's super stable on rails, but don't expect to whip too many change ups. This ski kind of sucks on jumps, yes it is poppy, but the second you start spinning you will regret the choice to spin. These skis are ultra heavy. Keep in mind, Line skis are more rail centered than other brands.Ratings:
