Luke Koppa reviews the Line Vision 98 for Blister

2020-2021 Line Vision 98

Back when we first took a look at Line’s ultralight Vision 98, we said it didn’t look like anything else on the market. And after skiing it throughout the past year, we’d also say it doesn’t ski like anything else out there, either. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons.

2019-2020 Moment Commander 98

We’ve been spending a lot of time on the current iteration of Moment’s Commander 98, and we think this metal-laminate all-mountain ski offers something pretty different from the competition that could make it very appealing to certain skiers. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons.
