The Pros:Can be taken into off-piste areas and maneuver well. Butter zones are well designed and have excellent snap. Lots of flex for the park, handles pipe action while keeping you in control.
The Cons:Heavier than most park skis, slows you down a bit. Tend to sink in deep powder.
The Line Afterbang is a park style freestyle ski that comes with a number of innovative jib-specific technologies, making it perfect for park riding and playful tricks.
The Afterbang comes with butterzones, which are top veneer layers that end at a specific point both in front and behind the binding that creates a 'hinge' point, giving it a smooth and controllable feel for nose/tail presses and for buttering.

It comes with a wrap around edge, making it highly durable because the edge wraps around the entire tip without a seam. This ski also comes with a carbon ollieband, which comes with vartically laminated, carbon-fiber stringers that work to give you a lightweight ski for a ride full of pop.
This ski is related to the Line Stepup, which is also a freestyle park board, but it does not have the butter zones of the wrap around edge.
