Intro

Line has a new collection of freeride skis for the 2022-2023 season: the Blade Optics.

These skis replace some Blister favorites, the Sick Day series, and combine traits from some other skis that some of us (myself included) really like, the Line Visions and original Blades.

Essentially, the Blade Optics take the Vision skis’ platform (shape, rocker profile, flex pattern, mount point) and combine it with the Blade’s metal-laminate core construction. Given how light the Vision skis are (I’m a big fan of them as touring skis), the heavier Blade core is meant to make the Blade Optics considerably more stable at higher speeds than the Visions, while still maintaining some of the Vision’s playful ride qualities.

This past season we spent time on the Blade Optic 92, 96, 104, and 114 — including at our Blister Summit in February. At the Summit, I also got the chance to sit down with Line’s Connor Clayton to discuss the backstory and details of the series, and you can check out that conversation below.

We’ve already posted our review of the Blade Optic 104, but now it’s time to go deep on its narrower sibling, the Blade Optic 96. First, we’ll cover the details in our original First Look, then Dylan Wood and I add our thoughts in the Full Review.

2022-2023 Line Blade Optic Collection

The Blade Optic series will consist of four models: the 92, 96, 104, and 114. Here are the available lengths for each model:

  • Line Blade Optic 92: 161, 168, 175, 182 cm
  • Line Blade Optic 96: 163, 170, 177, 184 cm
  • Line Blade Optic 104: 171, 178, 185, 190 cm
  • Line Blade Optic 114: 178, 186, 192 cm

The 92 is more of a price-point ski and does not feature metal, but the other three do. On that note…

Construction

The Blade Optic 96, 104, and 114 all feature an aspen wood core, fiberglass laminate, and Line’s “Gas Pedal Medal Overdrive.” In short, this is a partial layer of titanal that’s split into segmented sections, and that tapers to a point near the ends of the skis. The goal is to get some of the benefits of a titanal layer (added damping, torsional rigidity) while still creating skis that aren’t super stiff and produce energy when bent.

It’s also cool to see that the Blade Optic 96, 104, and 114 all get Line’s “Fatty” base (1.7 mm) and edge (2.5×2.2 mm), which should help with long-term durability.

Shape / Rocker Profile

The Blade Optic 96’s shape and rocker profile look a whole lot like the Line Vision 98. If neither ski had graphics, it’d be kinda hard to tell the difference (though the raised metal pattern on the 96 would give it away). The Blade Optic 96’s tips and tails have a bit of early taper, but it’s not super dramatic (though a bit more tapered than the Line Sick Day 94).

The Blade Optic 96’s rocker lines are notably deep for a 96mm-wide ski. Though, like the Vision’s rocker profiles, the Blade Optics’ rocker lines stay pretty low-slung till you get to the widest points of the tips and tails.

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Blade Optic 96:

Tips: 5.5-6
Shovels: 6-7
In Front of Toe Piece: 7.5-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-8
Tails: 7.5-6

The Blade Optic 96 is not a super stiff ski. It’s strong around the middle, but especially compared to most other metal-laminate skis, the Blade Optic 96’s tips and tails — and the areas between those and the middle — are softer than average.

2022-2023 Line Blade Optic 96, BLISTER

Sidecut Radius

The 184 cm Blade Optic 96’s stated sidecut radius is 18 meters, which isn’t very out of the ordinary, but is a touch on the shorter side of average.

Mount Point

Like the Line Vision skis, the Blade Optic 96’s recommended mount point is a bit closer to center than average, at -7 cm from the true center of the ski. We found that the Vision skis allowed for a variety of skiing stances (both centered and forward), and we suspect the same will be true of the Blade Optics. The Blade Optics’ mount points are notably closer to center than the Line Sick Day skis, but not as close to center as Line’s freestyle skis, such as the Sir Francis Bacon and Chronic.

Weight

This is another area where the Blade Optics differ significantly from the Sick Day skis they replace. While the Blade Optic skis are by no means super heavy, they are heavier than the Sick Days, and a bit heavier than several other skis with similar mount points, rocker profiles, and flex patterns.

For reference, here are a number of our measured weights (per ski in grams) for some notable skis. Keep in mind the length differences to try to keep things apples-to-apples.

Some Questions / Things We’re Curious About

(1) The Blade Optic 96 is a blend of Line’s Vision and Blade skis, so does it feel more similar to one vs. the other?

(2) The Blade Optic 96 is a bit heavier than most skis in its class, but it’s also got a moderately soft flex pattern, deep rocker lines, and a progressive mount point. So just how damp and stable will it feel, and conversely, how playful and maneuverable will it be?

FULL REVIEW

Groomers

Dylan Wood (5’10”, 155 lbs / 178 cm, 70 kg): For its width, the Blade Optic 96 performs well on piste, especially given how it handles the rest of the mountain (more on that later).

The Blade Optic 96 is easy to get on edge, and while its fairly tapered shovels don’t eagerly pull you across the fall line, the Blade Optic 96 is easy to bend into relatively tight carved turns on piste. When making longer, faster turns, this ski still feels comfortable, too. Its soft tips can flap a bit when just straightlining groomers, but this is the only time this ski felt unstable to me on piste. While its extremities are pretty soft, this ski is quite stiff underfoot, and this section of the ski provides a lot of power and edge hold, while the tips and tails feel quite easy to feather and release from turns. This results in a sensation of feeling as if you are mostly carving the middle of the ski, though not as much as this ski’s wider sibling, the Blade Optic 104. While the Blade Optic 96 is very accepting of a more centered, upright carving stance, it can still be carved with a more forward stance, putting significant pressure into the shovels of the ski.

The Blade Optic 96 also produces energy when bent and can launch you in and out of rhythmic, dynamic carved turns. Additionally, this ski doesn’t require much power to tap into this poppiness and is overall a much more accessible carver than something notably more powerful like the Volkl M6 Mantra. Still, I found it hard to overpower the Blade Optic 96, and it handled all the input I gave it just fine. I would expect a heavier and/or more expert carver would maybe want to reach for something stiffer and/or more rearward mounted if they are wanting to really lay into it on groomers, though.

Despite being so accessibly energetic, the Blade Optic 96 also handles roughed-up groomers quite well and still remains composed when carving through piles of pushed-around snow. Again, stiffer and/or heavier skis (e.g. K2 Mindbender 99Ti) are even more damp and stable, but for how easygoing and poppy the Blade Optic 96 feels, it is impressively stable when carving through rough snow.

Luke Koppa (5’8”, 155 lbs / 173 cm, 70 kg): Dylan did a great job of hitting all the highlights here. Like him, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed carving the Blade Optic 96 on a wide variety of groomed trails, from steep and firm to mellow and soft. I’ll reiterate that this is a very accessible, energetic ski that can still be pushed quite hard and offers decent suspension, and it’s really easy to release and feather while offering very good edge hold around the binding area. These sorts of contrasting characteristics really define the Blade Optic 96 and are a big reason why it has the potential to work for so many different types of skiers.

Chalk

Dylan: I spent a lot of time skiing the Blade Optic 96 on smooth, almost groomer-like chalk, and its performance here is similar to how it acts on piste. The Blade Optic 96 has a pretty strong midsection with soft, forgiving extremities, and this results in a stable platform underfoot that can be pushed hard, but tips and tails that are easy to release from turns. The Blade Optic 96 has good edge hold on firm snow but is quite easy to pivot and slide around when needed.

Dylan Wood on the Line Blade Optic 96.

The Blade Optic’s impressive mixture of dampness and poppiness continues to be prevalent off-piste. When pointing this ski down the fall line and charging through some rougher snow, it feels fairly smooth and remains composed. But, this ski is far from dead; it doesn’t take much speed for it to come alive, and it generates some energy at the bottom of every turn.

Luke: The Blade Optic 96 works really, really well for my personal preferences, and I absolutely loved skiing it very dynamically in chalky steeps, where I could leverage its lively flex pattern, loose tails, and fairly low swing weight to make quick adjustments, while its decent suspension and stiff midsection allowed me to drive it through rougher sections of snow. This certainly is not the most planted, composed ski in this width, but as will become a common refrain in this review, the Blade Optic 96 stands out because of its combination of suspension / stability and quickness / maneuverability.

Moguls, Trees, and Tight Terrain

Dylan: The Blade Optic 96 has a low swing weight (likely due to most of its mass being near the bindings) and loose extremities, and this makes it feel at home in bumps, trees, and other tight spots. The Blade Optic 96 is easy to throw sideways, and its tails are pretty soft and forgiving, making it an accessible and easygoing ski in tight terrain.

It pairs well with a dynamic style, too, and when skied more aggressively in bumps, it provides a nice pop out of every turn, launching you into the next. There are definitely lighter skis out there that are more agile and take less work to swing around in tight spots, and there are also heavier, stiffer ones that can be pushed harder in bumps. But, for how easygoing the Blade Optic 96 is in tight, tricky spots, it is impressively stable.

2022-2023 Line Blade Optic 96, BLISTER
Dylan Wood on the Line Blade Optic 96 (Mt. Crested Butte, Colorado)

Luke: Once again, agreed. On that last note, I’d definitely say the Blade Optic 96 leans more toward the quick and easy side of the spectrum in tight terrain, rather than the planted and stable, but it also offers better suspension than many of the even quicker, lighter alternatives. I also really appreciate the Blade Optic 96’s versatility in terms of skiing stance in tight terrain, since I feel like I can get pretty far forward or back on the ski while still feeling in control. I’m also a fan of how loose its tips and tails feel, since its midsection still produces a ton of edge hold when you need it to. All in all, I think this is a really adaptable ski in tight terrain, and it could work well as a ski to improve on for less experienced off-piste skiers, or as a nimble ski for experienced skiers who value something that’s agile, loose, and playful.

Soft Chop

Dylan: Soft chop can be a lot of fun on stable-yet-playful skis, and the Blade Optic 96 is no exception. Its soft tips do get knocked around a bit when skiing less attentively through piles of chop. But when skiing with a more active, dynamic style and paying more attention to line choice, the Blade Optic 96 can be skied quite hard through soft chop. This ski continues to feel loose in soft snow, and is easy to throw sideways and break the tails loose when you need to dump speed.

As with other conditions, the Blade Optic 96 feels poppy, playful, and light in the air. Utilizing this in soft chop looks like popping off snow piles and taking a more playful approach to soft chop. Those who prefer to keep their skis on the ground will find that the Blade Optic is stable enough to be skied somewhat hard, but it falls short of the stability and composure of other heavier and stiffer skis such as the J Skis Masterblaster. The Blade Optic 96 also requires a more centered stance in soft chop and powder, and those looking to drive the shovels of their ski in these conditions have better, more directional options.

Luke: Yep, the Blade Optic 96 isn’t what I’d recommend if high-speed stability is your absolute top priority, but it offers enough mass and a stiff enough flex pattern (especially around the middle) to be skied hard in soft, cut-up conditions. And the more you’re willing to adapt on the go, seek out little airs, shed speed where you can, and otherwise ski in a dynamic fashion, the more I think you’ll enjoy the Blade Optic 96.

One note: the Blade Optic 96 definitely feels like “less ski” than the Blade Optic 104 and (especially) the Blade Optic 114, so if stability in chop is a big priority for you but you like the sound of the softer, more playful Blade Optic series, I’d probably point you toward the wider, heavier models.

Firm Chop / Crud

Dylan: The Blade Optic 96 is a moderately heavy ski for its width and it has pretty good suspension, especially considering how playful and energetic it is. But while this ski handles firm, crappy snow okay, it is certainly not a variable conditions charger. It is still enjoyable to ski the Blade Optic 96 so long as you are not in absolutely horrendous conditions and you’re not trying to ski super hard and fast, but if I frequently encountered tough firm chop, I’d probably reach for a heavier, stiffer ski.

Dylan Wood and Luke Koppa review the Line Blade Optic 96 for Blister
Dylan Wood on the Line Blade Optic 96.

Luke: Yep — the Blade Optic 96 handles these sorts of rough, challenging conditions better than most skis that are similarly maneuverable, nimble, and playful, but it still gets knocked around quite a bit when trying to ski through chunky crud at high speeds.

Playfulness

Dylan: The Blade Optic 96 is impressively playful, considering how well it functions as an all-mountain ski. Its soft tips and tails are easy to bend, and this ski produces a lot of pop off all sorts of features and at both slow and faster speeds. It feels like most of its mass is concentrated near the bindings, and combined with its fairly centered mount point of around -7 cm, the Blade Optic feels balanced in the air and is happy to flip and spin. Its loose extremities give it a fairly surfy feel, too.

While the Blade Optic 96 isn’t a true park ski like the similarly wide Line Chronic, I think most skiers will be happy with it in the park. Its lower swing weight works well for quicker rail tricks, and it feels very versatile in terms of handling slower-speed jibs and bigger features that require more speed. Again, its tips and tails are easy to bend, but it has a very strong midsection that provides a lot of support at higher speeds. The Blade Optic 96 also skis switch quite well, and not just in the park. I also think this ski works well mounted 1-2 cm forward of its recommended line for those looking to get more freestyle performance out of it.

Luke: Yep, the Blade Optic 96 doesn’t feel like a purely freestyle-oriented ski, but especially for freestyle skiers who value all-mountain versatility and high-speed stability, its overall level of playfulness is impressive. As someone who mostly just does little spins but tries to get in the air at every opportunity, I never felt like the Blade Optic 96 was “holding me back” from skiing as playfully as I wanted.

Who’s It For?

Dylan: Like the rest of the Blade Optic line, the Blade Optic 96 blends traits from several categories of skis, and it could work well for a lot of different skiers out there. Skiers who feel stuck between more playful, agile, forgiving skis and more stable, damp, powerful ones have reason to consider the Blade Optic 96 because it has a versatile and unique combination of accessibility and stability.

Additionally, this could be a safe bet for beginner or intermediate skiers who aren’t really sure what they want out of their all-mountain ski. This ski blends traits from all-mountain freestyle skis, more forgiving all-mountain skis, as well as more stable all-mountain skis, and the result is sort of a chameleon that can grow with you regardless of which path you choose.

Last, more advanced and expert skiers who appreciate a mix of playfulness, maneuverability, dampness, and stability in their skis should have the Blade Optic 96 on their radar. It can be skied quite hard all over the mountain, yet lets you take it easy as well as throw tricks and ski more playfully wherever you go.

I wouldn’t recommend this to aggressive directional skiers looking to charge through any crud or chop they encounter, or skiers looking for something ultra quick and nimble with a really low swing weight. Apart from that, the Blade Optic 96 is definitely worth considering, so long as you aren’t always skiing bulletproof ice or very deep snow.

Luke: Dylan did a great job of covering the (very wide-ranging) demographic for which I think the Blade Optic 96 is pretty ideal. It’s not ideal for those who ski a ton of ice, prioritize stability and suspension above all else, or those who want the lightest, softest ski. But outside of folks in those extremes, a case can be made for many people to consider this ski. And while our goal with our reviews is always to outline who might enjoy a product, not whether we personally do, I’ll add that this ski works exceptionally well for my individual skiing style and preferences, and I’m sure you’ll be seeing it in my personal ski-quiver selections this fall.

Bottom Line

The Line Blade Optic 96 offers a rare mix of playfulness, stability, energy, and damping that make it difficult to fit into any one category. It can be pushed hard in a variety of conditions, yet it also lets you take it easy and slip and slarve your way down the hill. Directional skiers who aren’t fans of stiff, demanding skis, as well as more playful skiers who like to ski all over the mountain can both get along well with the Blade Optic 96. Overall, this ski rarely feels out of place, and could work for an uncommonly large variety of skiers.

    • Yep, for 22-23, the Blade Optic series takes over for the Sick Days. The Blade and Blade W remain in the lineup, as does the Pandora line.

  1. I am a HUGE line fan! My wife rides the Pandora 104 and my girlfriend loves her Pandora 94s!!!!!!!

    I need a mid-90s daily driver for Crystal Mountain, Snowmass, Aspen Mountain and Big Sky. I’m stuck between the new Line Blade Optic 96 and the new Rossignol SENDER 94 Ti.

    Can y’all help? Big guy at 6′ and 225 lbs. Intermediate skier who is too old and too broken down to get much better than that. Mostly groomers but I like to get into some good snow when it happens. Gracias!

    • The Blade Optic 92 may have the appearance of having metal, but it does not have any actual metal in the core.

  2. this and the 104 sound very interesting. I currently have, and love, a vision 108 but my one complaint is the lack of composure on hard, re-frozen chunder and it’s almost brittle feeling on ice. I’m wondering if it would make sense to use the optic 104 as a 50/50 1-ski-vacation-quiver? Like, is it capable of general resort and freeriding, but also not so weighty it could’t be set up with shifts and skins for short touring days?
    Very excited to see some full reviews

  3. Interesting ski. For my eyes they look quite similar to the Armada Declivity 92 & 102 ti skis, albeit perhaps a tad softer flex and hopefully a bit more damped with a 100-200 grams extra. Looking forward to the review!

  4. I skied the 184 last Saturday at Crystal Mtn. It was my favorite ski of the day. I’m looking for something in between an older Blizzard Bonifide, and my Nordica Enforcer 110. I want something that will handle some speed on groomers but can also duck into the trees in some fresh snow and do some tight turns.
    This ski performed exactly as the rep said. You can take it into a slow turn and it will hold an edge, or if you push a little harder it responds to what you demand. Very stable under foot. Felt real solid when on edge in firm conditions.
    The tip feels damp, but not stiff. It can handle some bumps without being too springy and turns very easily without being squirrely.
    It wasn’t on my list, but moved to the top after I skied it.
    I compared it to the Salomon QST 98, Nordica Unleashed 98, and the Volkl Mantra 98. The Mantra was a beast and will handle everything. The Nordica was squirrely and is probably fun in the park, but not enough top end at speed. The QST 98 was close, but the Optic was the best. I could relax on it and charge on it.
    Can’t wait until next year when they come out. Hope this helps.

  5. I am 73 years young. I have three pairs of skis of which one is my favorite line supernaturals 92.
    Hands down my favorite! What do I replace them with?
    Thanks

    • Check out Blister Winter Buyer’s Guide, All-mountain, more stable section, from Renoun Endurance 88 through Salomon Stance 96; All-mountain, more forgiving: Blizzard Rustler 9, Black Crows Camox, Salomon QST 98, and 4frnt MSP 99 at least. HTH.

  6. I’m looking at this ski for quite few different situations: I ski in the alps and I’m looking for a ski that I can tour with, shred laps on spring groomers with friends with a combination of skiing fast and trying to be more playful but also wonder around while teaching. This ski seems to fit the bill, what other ski would you suggest? I was looking at salomon stance 96 as well..
