Line Sakana has both a classic and unique design with its significant fish-tail. The ski has a traditional span that makes it really sharp on hard ground but with early rise rocker in the front, Sakana does not do away when dumped snow. Inside these beauties we find a wooden core consisting of paulownia and maple that provides a well-balanced balance between weight and stability. Rider quote: “Good flow and turns the shit out of most people on the piste. This ski you can defeat the whole mountain with. "And" Surf piste that works in a playful way everywhere. "

Strenghts:
Incredibly quick skis, good flow in varied snow. Tremendously easy to swing and the ski is basically swinging by itself.
In varied snow conditions a super nice ski

Weaknesses:
Short radius helps keep the ski almost flooding if you stay too long on the cutting edge.
In cushions you end up a bit far behind and the sheath wants the nasal sling to swing short turns by itself, so it tends to almost shovel the snow in front of you if you take out the turns, almost flooding.

Summary:
A superb allmountain ski that unfortunately does not deliver in powder, not even if you like to take long turns. The ski's short radius contributes to short turns. Bought 174 cm skis because the recommendation was to take 10 cm shorter than normal. The ski had probably been much nicer in 181 cm. So recommend taking the longer ski.

Used the ski in all weather, ranging from sheer dump, uphill to groomed piste. A cannon ski to most things but which was unfortunately a little worse than expected in powder.

Strenghts:
* Really playful
* They have an inviting radius to carva considerably with
* Light and short
* Fast and easy to control
* Surprisingly good grip in hard piste (?!)

(Even though they are really good looking these beauties, very subjective experience)

Weaknesses:
The breath unbalanced in the air due to the stance and the length of the nose vs fishtail
A little well short radius to get a really comfortable flow. (Feels like they constantly want to swing in loose snow)

Summary:
Mr Pollard has succeeded in creating another masterpiece!

After spending 2 full sentences in Japan as a guide and instructor on Pollard's former Opus ... more precisely his first iteration of Magnum Opus in 188cm, one has got a taste of how playful and simply right it usually feels on the skis as he design.

.. The sick with these layers is that they performed above expected on harder substrates.
The first few days the fish were tested, the snow was quite a few snaps worse than the maximum one could say.
Very little fresh snow that was blown and whipped to the sides of the hill and sugar snow mixed with snow hard packed like kevlar ... But after traveling on a couple of skis with a fairly similar radius days before that was also considerably narrower at the waist so the radius felt almost immediately from the first ride inviting to test what the ski is going for.

The testing lasted for 3 days with varying snow and in varying terrain and the skis stood pallet for the most part ... the only thing missing was really deep snow as the deepest that could be tested was about 10cm.

The skis felt well-balanced on the snow, but if you had longer airtime where you tried to rotate / tweak the skis, you could feel that they were slightly heavier than behind, but still not something you were disturbed .. And given the shape you can't expect anything Other.

The tails that make the skis special were really a delight!
Really nice stiffness and gave cruel responses in solid turns on harder surfaces and also gave a really nice and controlled feeling during steering and controlling turns. is given it also with the shorter tail.

How about oats a wise ski that can suit those who want a more playful experience on the rock that I can almost describe as a day with fresh snow on a really good snowboard setup that really wants to allow you to swing and play your way.

Has given the grade 4 out of 5 when I imagine that a radius of some meters extra could have developed the full potential of the ski, but would still like to say that these can still be classified as masterpieces!
