Tested / Line Influence 115 Review

January 17th, 2014 - Posted by danbrown in LINE Skis News, LINE Skis Reviews, Propaganda (Line in the News & Media)

The Line Influence 115 has been our go-to do everything stick for the past few seasons. Looking for a neutral, easy to ski big mountain stick for all conditions out west? This should be atop your short list…

Influence 115 Line

Long Term Review: Line Influence 115 192

Skier: Jeff Brines
Height: 6’2”
Weight:190lbs
Place: Jackson
Binding: FKS 14
Boot: Krypton Pro
Ski Weight: ~2450 grams (192)
Radius: 22.6M @ 186M
Rocker: Rocker/Camber/Rocker (Height in mm -11 +4 -9)
Construction: Capwall

Summary: The Line Influence 192 impressed us a few years back with its versatility and overall neutrality. It isn’t the stiffest, lightest or biggest stick out there but its strength lies in its ability to strike a balance of “do everything” at an attractive price point. If you are a skier living out west, the Andrew Whiteford (and other line athletes) “pro” model should be on a short list of skis that can do it all.

Who is it for: This is a great one-ski quiver or go-to inbounds ski for the stronger skier living somewhere it snows more than 400” a year. The Influence 115 is especially good for those who appreciate a more modern mount point and looking for something that strikes a balance between “playful” and “charger”. If you like a more traditional (rearward) mount point, looking for the lightest ski in the 110-120mm category or want as much float as possible, look elsewhere.

Side note two of the best Jackson Hole skiers, Max Hammer and Andrew Whiteford had a fair amount of input in this ski. If you like how they ski and your mountain parallels that of JHMR, consider this to be near the top of your list.
