Technical info:
These skis from Line stand out for their low weight, soft tail thin base and edge, a lot of rocker and a high camber. A short setback gives a wide back ski compared to the other measures. Opus has quite a lot of sidecut. This is a wider and lighter version of Eric Pollard's signature ski, Opus.

On snow:
It demonstrates that a good ski doesn´t necessarily have to have a super stiff back ski. A harmonious and fun ski! With better flotation this would have been the test winner. Otherwise, there is little to pick on. It might be a little too light in heavy conditions. The playful types who are looking for a ski that covers the whole mountain, all winter, should try Magnum Opus from Line.
