    • Those 2 skis are going to ride completely differently IMHO, rustler 11 has metal in it and is stiffer/heavier. Sick day is lighter and has more early rise rocker. I ride them both at my home resort, I also ride the nordica enforcer 110 which is similar to the rustler 11. Try them all out, I love them all. Cheers.

      • Hi Mike, can give a (short) overview of the differences between those ski’s. That will help me a lot, all three of them are on my shortlist :-).
        I am looking for a successor for my rossignol soul 7 (one of the first generations). My soul 7’s are/were fine, but they miss some float and are a bit too short (180) for me (182cm / 8’11,5″). I also prefer a more stable ski at speed and not the floppy tip of the soul 7, but still requires some playfulness.
        The binding will be my kingpin’s, I want to have the best possible do it all ski for my preferences. Not a burly charger. Good edge hold en some carving abilities will be some added values.

  1. As someone with a 2014 sick day 110, I’m looking for a ski that is at least as stable, with a bit fore floatation, and is easier to break free/slash in powder. Would this fit the bill?

  2. Hi there!
    I used to ski a Wailer 112 Hybrid in a 184- Liked it. Need something wide/floaty again. Will the SD114 (180) fit the bill? The Wailer was relatively undemanding, medium flex and floated great. How will the SD compare in terms of flex and general ease of skiing? As a sidenote, current Wailer 100 Foundation, had to sell again because it was WAY to stiff. Thanks!

    • Yes, our measured mount point is correct for how we measure mount points for all the skis we review. For the mount points we list, we simply measure the distance from the true center of the ski (true center being our measured length of the ski, divided by 2).

      The way that Line lists their mount points is a bit different. This is how their engineer summed up how they come up with their listed mount points: “our center mark is not the center of the ski but the center of the designed running surface length (you could think of it as a core center of sorts).” So when they list the distance from the mount point to “center,” their center point is not always the “true center” point that we measure.

      Since some brands list mount points in different ways, we measure all of ours exactly the same, in an effort to keep them consistent and comparable across different brands. But for all of our ski reviews, the measured mount point is simply how far back the recommended line is from the true center of the ski.

  3. Hi, excellent answer! Thanks!
    It just caught my eye that maybe the review tile is wrong, it says 19/20 but shows the 18/19 ski (and the older 17/18) and was written in 2018?
    Anyway, a Line Rep just answered a mail of mine saying that Line changed the mounting point from 17/18 to 18/19, can you confirm or comment?
    Ps just ordered a 17/18 SD114

  4. Hi, looking for a wider set of skis to use when touring, i have looked at the sick days 114 and the rustler 11, in 190 or 192 cm. i have a pair of sick day 104 that i love and are super fun. Looking for a ski to use in high speed, but at the same time, a ski that turns quickly and is playfull. Which would you choose?

  5. Sounds like you’re describing a fun inbounds setup with alpine bindings, not a touring setup with tech bindings. You find yourself skiing high speed, turning quickly, and hitting features on an every day/normal tour? What bindings do you intend to use? Kingpins? Shift mnc?

  6. I’m currently looking at picking up a pair of 2020 Sick Day 114’s in the 190 length on a pretty sweet deal, the price is right. Before I pull the trigger, I figured I’d see if anyone had input for me.

    About me: I’m def on the bigger end of skiers at 6’2″ and approx 250lbs with gear on. I ski all over the Wasatch and I’m looking for a new dedicated pow/soft conditions ski for inbounds. Other skis in my quiver: 4FRNT MSP 99 that I ski as a daily driver in anything from firm conditions up to 8″ of fresh. I also have a dedicated touring set-up, so I wouldn’t be using the Sick Day 114 for more than bootpacking around a resort.

    I’m looking for the Sick Day 114’s to replace two skis for me:
    1. 2014 Line Sick Day 125’s | 192 length = these need to get retired or made into a dedicated rock ski, but I LOVE them. They’ve been my favorite pure pow ski ever due to their playfulness, float, and ability to pivot on demand in tight situations. I also found them impressively versatile as long as conditions stay soft.

    2. 2015 Line Supernatural 115’s = Perhaps the best big mtn ski I’ve ever owned. They got it done in powder when the terrain was steep and open, but imo take more effort to break free or pivot when things get tight. While definitely less playful than the Sick Day 125, where they REALLY shined for me was mobbing crud. Also found they held an edge well on a groomer for their size.

    So I guess my question is: If I’m looking for a best-of-both-worlds ski that combines the ability of the two skis above… would that be the 2020 Line Sick Day 114?
