Evan here. Just got off the Line Sir Francis Bacon. This is Eric Pollard's all-mountain ski. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's redesigned for this year. He shrunk it down a little bit to 104 at the waist. It really just gives it an all over great feel. It's going to be for your intermediate to expert all-mountain skiers. Really lays down an edge pretty nice and it's still nice and forgiving for really just a good all over ski. 5 out of 5.

Hey, I'm Josh. Just got off the Sir Francis Bacon by Line. Changed the ski up a little bit this year. It's got a, kind of this new tapered tip and a little bit narrower waist compared to last seasons. Still a great ski. Definitely a 5 out of 5 stars. It's a very versatile. If you're looking for that kind of one-quiver ski, this would absolutely be it. It can do everything from kind of hitting jumps, hitting rails, to holding a pretty good edge on the hard pack and, when the snow's soft and deep, definitely floats and carves well. Great ski for that kind of high-advanced to expert level skier who really just wants one ski to do everything. 5 out of 5 stars.

Hi, Lucas here. I just got off the Sir Francis Bacon by Eric Pollard and Line Skis. This has always been one of my top skis. I'm going to give it 5 out of 5 stars. Definitely would recommend it to an advanced intermediate or expert skier that really enjoys carving the front of the mountain, taking it into the deeper snow or taking a line through the park. You can really do what you want with these. A little updated this year. Little less rocker. Shortened underfoot to 104, I believe, and otherwise it feels a little stiff but still a good old Sir Francis Bacon. 5 out of 5 stars.

Hey, I'm Casey. I just got off the Sir Francis Bacons. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 stars. It's really, really stable ski at high speeds for longer turns and when I get into short, skidded turns it switches from one to the other really, really smooth. It's for an expert to, intermediate to expert level skier and on a variable conditions day this is an all-mountain ski for really whatever type of skiing you're doing. I give this ski a 5 out of 5 stars.

 

David's Review Rating:

Hey, I'm Dave and I just got off the Line Sir Francis Bacon. This ski is completely redesigned this year. It's a little bit smaller underfoot. It's 104 underfoot now. It also features the new Cloud Core. It reduces weight about 30%. It's actually pretty impressive how light it is for how big of a ski. Compared to previous versions of the Bacon it's a little bit stiffer, a little bit more chatter on the hard pack but it can still definitely hold an edge. You can throw it around in the soft stuff. Overall it's a great ski. Definitely a ski that can destroy the whole mountain. It's a fun ski to ride. Like I said, a little bit stiffer compared to the previous versions of the Bacon but still a great ski. Overall I'd give it 4 out of 5 stars.

 

Mike B.'s Review Rating:

Hey, I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the all new Line Sir Francis Bacon. 4 out of 5 for this ski. 104 underfoot. Great all-mountain ski. It's pretty much going to be your go-anywhere do-anything ski. It will hold an edge really well but it's also very playful in the tip and tail so it's very buttery. You can slash stuff, you can carve stuff. Take it through the trees, take it through the bumps, take it the chop. Basically anything you want to do with this ski you can do. The only...the reason I didn't give it a 5 out of 5 is on the highest of big turns it tended to chatter a little bit so just be wary of that if you're considering the ski. But other than that, really great all-mountain ski. 4 out of 5 - Line Sir Francis Bacon.

 

Thom's Review Rating:

Hi, I'm Thom. I just got off of the Line Sir Francis Bacon. I'm going to give this 4 out of 5 stars this year. The new construction makes it super lightweight, super nimble. It's real buttery in the tip and tail so for your guy with a strong freestyle background that's looking for a real all-mountain ski but wants playfulness, it's absolutely great. The place I'm taking a point off for is for me personally I like something that's a little bit more hard charging. At the top end of speed this thing does get a little bit nervous. It still holds the edge, it just doesn't have a stable, powerful feel. But for somebody who wants that light nimble freestyle all-mountain, this is absolutely it. 4 out of 5 stars.

 

Adam's Review Rating:

Read the Review Transcript:

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the new Line Sir Francis Bacon. I give this ski 3 out of 5 stars. They kind of changed it a little bit. They lightened it up with their new Cloud Core and kind of narrowed it up in the waist so to me it felt a little bit softer than the other Bacon's have in the past. For me, it just wasn't very stable at speed. If you're a guy who's looking for like a really soft and buttery all-mountain ski, something you can take through the park and charge through the bumps and the powder, this is a great ski for ya but for me, I like to just kind of go big and fast and this one just didn't really do it for me. 3 out of 5.
