A lot of skiers think Line just makes park skis or all their skis are noodles and not good for anything except sliding rails and hitting boxes; these skiers couldn't be more incorrect. Line makes an incredible product for almost every type of skier on the mountain. They not only look and ski great, they are built to last. One of the most impressive skis in their arsenal of shred sticks is the 2013 Line Opus Skis.
The Opus measures in at 144-118-141. The ski is extremely nimble and quick edge to edge, despite it's fat 118mm waist. The waist and tip, with a more tapered early rise, keep the skis right on top of the crud, powder, slush, you name it! If you're ready to move to something that has a wider waist, the Mr. Pollard's Opus is a great choice. Ski is stiff enough to hold an edge on whatever ice rink you decide to ski down and mounted a little closer to center so it's plenty playful and fun off trail or in the powder.
ERIC POLLARD - "Over the past decade I have designed and skied over 100 different prototypes in search of skis that allow me to ride the mountain the way I want to. We have gone to every extreme from super fat 140mm to narrow, to super short, to over 200cm long, extreme Early Rise to no Early Rise, lots of side cuts to reverse sidecut, blunt tips, pointy tips. We have applied every flex pattern we can think of, mounted each ski in different locations and analyzed the differences over and over again, to learn so much from each ski. The new Opus and the Bacon are the culmination of the last 13 years of work. They blend a perfect mix of flex, sidecut, tip shape, overall shape/ footprint, mounting point, Early rise, Early taper, and camber. They are honestly the best skis I have ever skied."
The 2012 - 2013 Line Mr. Pollard's Opus is available in a new length; 192cm. For the strong skier that is around 6 ft or 180 lbs go for the longer length you'll love it!
