Like a fighter jet made out of biceps, the Line Skis Prophet 85 Skis are ruthlessly quick and powerful. 85 mm underfoot is perfect for screaming GS turns at the resort, while 118 mm at the tip means you can get after a powder day without excessive lodge breaks to massage the life back into your legs. Directional Flex™ gives the ski stiffness in back, and a playful side up front. Warp drive . . . Engage!
Early Rise™ The rise in the tip starts early for effortless float in soft snow without sitting back and easier turn initiation in any conditions.

Comments about Line Skis Prophet 85 Skis 2014:
I demoed Line Profit 85's in a 179 length (I'm 6'3, 200lbs) at Mammoth after trying 5 other pair of skis. I had never heard of Line and was not expecting to like them. I'd already found a pair that I liked best and only tried these because I had 2 hours left before the lifts closed. The conditions were a few inches of fresh powder at the top, groomed at the middle and getting cruddy and a bit spring-like at the bottom. A good all-round test of these skis.
I found them MUCH lighter weight than my Recons and much easier to turn, with better edge grip. Notably they will give you better ability to adjust the radius of your turn, unlike the Recons which tend to be more like a bull-dozer once you start turning.
I had MUCH more fun on these than my Recons. As a test to make sure I wasn't just having a good day, I put my Recons on for a last run and it felt like my feet were in cement, weighted down. I bought a pair of Profit 85's a week later, with Marker Griffon bindings.
Great all-mountain ski!
