Badass Skis

I purchased the Influence 115s to replace a pair of Armada JJs that I really did not like. I am a tele skier and found the JJs to be too poppy (I like a lively ski, but the JJs are poppy in a disconcerting way), and the rather extreme tail rocker does not provide enough back-foot support.

I already owned two other Line skis: the Prophet 100 and the 130. The Influence 115 has replaced the 100s as my go-to ski. The 115 has incredible edge hold when the Pac NW snow gets packed out, and incredible float when the snow is deep. They blast thru crud like none other, and are surprisingly quick edge-to-edge in bumps. And unlike other fat skis, they do not chatter at high speed: AT ALL!

I disagree with the comments that these skis need to be driven hard: today I practiced skiing on one foot, and I was able to control them with no problem (on tele gear, mind you). They are heavy, but they ski much smaller than their size.
