Comments about Line Mr. Pollard's Opus Skis - Men's - 2012/2013:
About me: 57 Years old, 5'6" 160lbs in good shape, ski around 50 days annually at Alta. I bought the Opus' in 185cms as I already have a pair of the Line SFBs in 178cms, so I was really only looking to use these as dedicated powder skis (complicating matters further, the SFBs are terrific powder skis in their own right). Whereas I demoed the SFBs in both the 178 and 184 lengths (loved them both), I didn't have the opportunity to demo these - but my faith in Line was borne out a week after purchasing them when we lucked out with a great late season powder day, only my second day skiing on them. They proved to be as much fun in the powder as I expected, and although not as versatile away from the powder as the SFBs, they were still great fun to ski on the groomers, with surprisingly good edge hold for such a wide board. As with the SFB, the Opuses ski short for their length. Demoing would be the ideal approach as always. For a shorter, lighter rider such as myself, at this length these are skis that encourage longer turns and reward higher speeds in powder with much great floatation.
