Line has replaced the Mr. Pollard’s Opus with a new 114mm-underfoot ski, the Mordecai, which sits in between the new, redesigned Sir Francis Bacon and the Magnum Opus in Eric Pollard’s line of pro model skis.
Line Skis’ Designer, Jed Yeiser, has said that Pollard wanted the Mordecai to handle much like the old Mr. Pollards Opus, but be even quicker and more nimble.
Like the redesigned Bacon, the Mordecai is stiffer than the Mr. Pollard’s Opus, has a slightly tighter sidecut radius, and borrows the same new, light, laminated balsa & flax core construction from the Magnum Opus.
As with the Bacon, we’re curious to find out how the Mordecai compares to the now-retired Mr. Pollard’s Opus in terms playfulness and all-mountain versatility.
