I've looked through the forums, and most people are saying that the Volkl Karmas are really stiff. I'm trying to decide between the AR5s, Big Troubles, ARVs, and the Karmas. I really loved the feel of my old Trouble Makers (i.e. how much life and spring they had, and still have, to them.) My question is, are the Karmas stiff and dead (like the Mad Trix) or stiff and lively (Idon't have an example for this)? Feel free to comment on the other skis I listed. Thanks.
P.S. I'm off to college this year, so most of the skiing I will be doing will be on trips out west. That's why I'm looking for skis fatter that the TM.
