Technical info:
This model is supposed to replace Line Afterbang. Like many other models in this test, it has a quite lot of flex, especially in the back. The ski has more sidecut at both ends.

On snow:
Line has produced several good park skis in recent years, and Honey Badger is no exception. Low weight combined with versatility convinces us. It´s not unlike Tigershark, last year´s test winner from the same brand. Some will feel it´s too light, but at the same time it´s very stable. Honey Badger is a very uncomplicated park ski. It is intuitive, stable, playful, spontaneous and safe. Spontaneous in terms of security, and playful in terms of low rotational weight. The balance between predictability on big jumps and playfulness on other element
