Mid-waisted, all-mountain ski for soft snow conditions and ripping trenches down corduroy or hardpack.
Designed with CapWall construction, the 95 features a cap on the top for light and responsive performance and sidewall construction over the edges for a smooth, solid feel while you slay the resort from top to bottom. Line engineers also gave the 95 a Maplelite MacroBlock wood core which has solid maple wood underfoot with lightweight aspen at the tips for durability and reduced swing weight. In addition, its ThinTip technology reduces swing weight and tip bounce by making the core and sidewall tips 100 grams lighter per pair.
And that's not all. Line packs in its Directional Flex technology which supplies a softer tip for float and easier turn initiation, while a stiffer tail gives power, stability, and high-speed control when you leave your mark down packed powder. Also packed in there is 5Cut technology which blends five different sizes of sidecut radius shapes into one for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes. To top it off, we really think you'll take a liking to the graphics designed by artist Derek Muscat. Although the Sick Day 95 won't necessarily please every powder fiend looking for a mid-waisted beauty of an all-mountain ride, it will make some giddy ... and that's the goal.

I currently ski the Scott Punisher for trees, powder, crud, and groomers but it is a bit much to handle on true long bump runs. Thinking of getting the Sick day 95 or Kendo for my bump and groomer ski. What are your thoughts? I am 6' 4" and 250. Thank you
Fun ski, more front side oriented
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This is definitely a fun ski, but a bit more front side oriented that I was expecting. It really rails on the hardpack and I felt the tails engage really well on the ends of turns.
In the ungroomed stuff I felt like it's a little disappointing- it seems to get knocked around pretty easily and I don't feel super confident on it. It is a pretty light ski, so this makes sense.
Fun ski that does really well on groomers and a little bit of softer stuff, but don't expect to be able to take it too much off piste of charge hard on it.

Any comparisons to this and the Atomic Theory from people that have skied both? Freeskier magazine rates Theory over the sick day in all categories and is highly scored in many reviews so Line Ski of the year has what going for it over the cheaper priced Theory?
Funny... I own 2 year old Theory and wife bought sick day 95 for me last month. The difference.... theory rocks on soft snow, honestly awesome. If you ski resort or thin snow days, theory can get chattery at speed and on ice is tough. Sick day 95 much better on groomers and slightly better in boot deep. Both are good...can't go wrong, but thin snow, easy hiking backcountry, just snowed 5 inches, the sick day is a little more useful and fun.

I am 5'10" and weigh about 220 lbs. I am considering this ski or the Soul 7. I am looking for more of an on piste ski that will handle anything. The reviews I have found on this ski are impressive but not sure if this ski would work well for someone of my size. I really like the dimensions of the ski. Would this ski work for me? Anyone bigger ride these yet?
Either the Sick Day or Soul 7 should work for you in the 188cm. I think you would really enjoy the decent camber underfoot and early rise rocker in this ski though. A light ski with substantial power and durability. And at $100 less than the Soul 7 you can dump that extra cash into some pretty bindings to match.
If you're looking for more on piste performance, this ski will do well for you. The Soul 7 does much better at off piste, but there is definitely a trade off for hard pack performance. It does well for what it is, but the Sick Day does a LOT better on groomers and harder stuff- it just holds an edge much better and has more of a flat tail that rockets you into the next turn.
