Best Skis Ever
You truly can't say enough about this ski. I resisted the trend towards wider, all mountain skis for years. Growing up racing, I always felt the need to have that true, "race stock" ski under foot...especially for east coast ice. After months of coaxing from my brother, I gave in an gave them a shot.

What a game changer. This ski has it all. You want slalom turns, go for it. Long drawn out GS carvers, have at it. Powder, sure! Crud, yup. Woods? Damn straight. It does everything. I'm 39 years old. I've been skiing since I was 4. I've NEVER had more fun on a pair of skis.

Line nailed this one.

Super fun, but poorly constructed
These skis are unlike anything I've skied. They ski like a slalom ski on hardpack and float effortlessly in deep snow. They're a bit soft for chopped up harder stuff, but with a couple of strong legs, they're a true one ski quiver. However, the construction process for line has really gone downhill. I have been skiing Line since 2003, over 25 pair and I've noticed a severe downturn in quality. On my 3rd day on the sakanas, cruising down a groomer, I hit an ice chunk deep in a turn that almost bucked me. When I got to the bottom I noticed the sidewalk has separated from the base. NOT COOL, especially since I had already sent back a pair of Bacons for the same issue. They at least warrantied those. Anyways, I went home, dried them out and threw some epoxy in the open seam and viced it back together (I really didn't want to send them back considering I just got them) and they looked good as new. After skiing these for another week I hit some rocks (I've lived in the Rockies for 10 years) and got a small core shot, which I fixed immediately. While cutting out sufficient base to fix the core shot I noticed the base material is practically the same thickness of a credit card. How can you expect to have a durable ski when the base is so thin!?!? What ever happened to the fatty base and edge?? It seems when Rubbermaid purchased K2, the quality and craftsmanship really took a turn for the worst. I have a pair of Opus's from 2015 that have been through hell and back and still ski like a dream! The base material is at least twice as thick and it seems they still knew how to construct a burly ski then. I was told yesterday that the skis wouldn't be warrantied because of impact, which is extremely unfortunate. I've spent thousands of dollars over the years and recommended these skis to everyone I know, but i guess all good things must come to an end.

Up here in the Pacific Northwest these skis do it all. I went from skiing circles around my friends on all out slolom skis to two feet of fresh with zero issues. This ski just feels natural. No fuss.
They also leave a dope triangle in the snow after you drop cliffs so you can always track your lines from the lifts.

If I could only have one ski, this would be it
I have the Sakana set up with a shift binding. It is incredible as both a resort and a backcountry ski. If I could only have one ski, this would be it. It rides high on powder and edges in packed snow. The tight radius is fantastic on the wide ski. The only time it did not ski well was on a glacier in September. Nothing would have skied well on that mess.

I have skied in many skis in my live. I love my SFB as my average ski and the Opus on powderdays. The Sakana is so much fun on groomers and on powder as well. Can’t wait to test them in spring when the snow gets slushy! If you ever rode a fischer worldcup sc rc4, the sakana carves netter, and the best, ist works in powder as well!
Tested it on icy groomers in the alps, too, it works so good!
So much fun with that ski!

It's hard to descibe this incredible ski, i have the 181 with tyrolia binding mounted on the recomended line.I'm 180cm x 85kg ski instructor.
Today i skied in groomed slopes and it's super fun, it catch edges like a "normal skis" and you can carve like years ago in fun carving style or in modern carving tecnique.
Super easy at every speed, going slow it is really soft and making a turn is very easy.Going a little bit faster doesn't feel soft beacause of a very solid tail.Going really fast you can cut the snow easily and it's so fun..you can go back or foward and the ski is superstable at speed.i haven't feel the 105 underfoot, it feels like a 90/95 underfoot, a real all-mountain ski.
I hope it snows soon to try it in powder!
Thank you Sakana for this feelings!
Ps: sorry for my English

i've been on Line's since the yellow 1260. This is the most fun ski ever! its literally a fatty slalom ski. you can rip hand planted carve's all day, and it still ski's blower pow better than the original Opus. I would add some metal to make them a bit stiffer. they get a little squirrelly around 73 mph, still fun tho. this is my most favoritist ski Line has ever made! Thank You Eric Pollard!
