Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Skis 2013:

As an east coast skier I bought the Afterbangs in their first year, and over this time have learned that this is a ski of definite and obvious strengths and weaknesses. Any day trip to the park will tell you that the carbon ollieband and super flexible construction are nice for hopping on rails and boxes, and the skate deck construction means the ski doesn't stop feeling like its new, even if it's been several years. However, take the Afterbangs into any powder at all and be prepared to stop and get your poles ready. They're grabby at best and useless at worst in the powder. They fare only marginally better in encounters with crud or choppy snow.
As a side note, the super awesome artwork on top and the sidewalls get absolutely destroyed after any real use. The skis still ski the way they did when I bought them, but every day on the mountain ends in reapplication of epoxy, not something I was counting on in a ski billed as indestructible.
Cannot wait to try a different line product, perhaps one better suited to more than one type of terrain.

Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Skis 2013:

I bought these skis for this years season and they took quite a bit of work to "break them in" but once they were used a little bit they were fine! But on like my third time out the wood topsheet splintered and a chunk of wood fell off after I hit a rail. So these skis are a good price-point ski but I would suggest the Armada AR7...

Best Uses

  • Park

Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Skis 2013:

I mushroomed the front of the left ski the first day riding by kicking a rail, totally my fault. Also these skis require you to wax the exposed parts of wood on the topsheet to prevent water from getting in. Besides that these skis look cool and are a lot of fun to ride in the park. They are not all mountain skis what so ever.
