Line Invaders, any good for learning on?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

HI,

I'm going away on my first ski trip this year, and I've been given the opportunity to borrow a pair of Line Invaders. Unfortunately I don't know the length yet, but I think they are the 2009 model.

 

I've never skied before. I can ice skate and Rollerblade, and I have done a small bit of snowboarding on a dry slope and in Irish pow. Anyway I was wondering whether or not these skis will be any good for me. Also I will be renting the boots, and the bindings are centre mounted.

 

So will I be able to learn on these skis, or would they be a significant hindrance on my learning?

they are not the best choice. Will you be able to learn on them? Probably, yes. Should you? No, not to mention that if you bring someone else's skis and rent boots, the bindings will need to be adjusted and tested. There goes some of the 'savings' you might have had on rental gear. I say you are better off renting a full ski package that will make the first few days more enjoyable.

Thanks for the response, I am only going for at most 5 days so I guess you're right, if I won't save money there's no real point in using them.
