        Overall

        These were the first pair of twin-tips that i owned, and i was happy with them. sometimes i wish i had gotten chronics because i did ski more park than i planned on and i have heard good things about the carving ability of chronics. overall i'm extremely happy with how well they performed.

        Performance

        I loved how easy it was to hold an edge with these...i know people who ski racing skis everyday who tried mine out and were extremely impressed that a twin-tip could ride as well as a pure carving ski. I took this out to Steamboat once and i found them to be maybe a little bit too stiff for deep powder, plus they're too skinny (80mm waist) for much powder at all. I had them mounted at the recommended mounting point, and found it to be perfect for all-mountain performance but too far back for much park. this version of the Assassin was really made as a carving ski in my opinion. If you're looking for a little bit more park oriented ski, check out the regular assassins, as even the assassin mtx's would be a little too stiff.

        Design

        These skis were pretty plain - i wasn't extremely impressed with the graphics. my guess is that Line wanted to make these skis a little bit more "mature" than the rest of it's line because it was designed as a true all-mountain ski. A year after i bought them i painted them...check my profile for pictures.

        Value

        These skis were a relatively good value...i made the mistake of learning how to do rails on them, which ruined them. If i hadn't destroyed them learning to do rails, these probly would have lasted all of 3 seasons. i was incredibly impressed with how much

        Characteristics

        These skis were extremely stiff, mostly due to the titanium metal matrix that extends most of the length. I'd say they were the perfect stiffness for carving and too stiff for my liking in the park.

        Durability

        Mediocre. i bent one of the tips learning backflips on these, and i was pissed. the bases are decent, i'd say average. top-sheets were average, edges were slightly below average (mainly because it isn't a park ski)
