The winner of our Gear Giveaway this week will win what is, in my opinion, one of the generally “most fun” skis on the market, the Line Blade!
You should read our full review and/or watch Line’s video below to see what the Blade and women’s Blade W are all about, cause they’re kinda hard to describe. On one hand, these skis have a really tight sidecut radius that makes it ludicrously easy — and ludicrously fun — to lay down tight, hard carves. But they’ve also got a bit of tip and tail rocker and a tail that’s much narrower than the tip, so unlike most tight-radius skis, the Blade is really easy to feather and slide around and not scary in variable conditions. It’s also a pretty damp ski, yet it’s still quite poppy when you bend it — which many people can do, since it’s also got a fairly accessible flex pattern.
I think the most notable praise I can give the Blade is that, on the days when I got the choice to ski whichever ski I wanted last season, the Blade was what I picked almost every time. That’s why it got a “Best Of” award in our 21/22 Winter Buyer’s Guide, and I think most people would have to try hard to have a bad time on the Blade. So if you like having a good time, enter below before Friday, October 22nd for your chance to win!
(Winners will be chosen at random and announced next Friday in our Blister Newsletter. Must be 18 or older. This particular giveaway is limited to residents of the U.S., Canada, and the E.U.)
By entering, you’ll receive our bi-weekly Blister newsletter, where we’ll (a) announce each week the winner of our previous Gear Giveaway, (b) provide a roundup of the news and our highest-profile reviews of the past few days, and (c) offer sneak peeks of the products we’re currently reviewing. It’s good times for sure, so don’t miss out. You’ll also be kept up to date on what’s new at Line.
