4frnt stl or armada ar6 or rossignol scratch fs wrs??
ive narrowed it down to these 3 skis...4frnts stl in 177, ar6 in 176, or the scratch fs wrs in a 174...all this years models..
im 5 foot 11 and weigh 150, i ski on the east coast maybe 60 all mountain/40 park, and sometimes take the skis out to do some urban stuff...
any input from people who have ridden any of these 3 skis would be very helpful...
also, does anyone know what ski is the lightest out of these 3?
Scratch FS WRS is def lighter than AR6, but I don't know about the STL's, but am pretty sure the FS with it's WRS tech is one of the lightest skis out there.
i've ridden stl and they are a nice solid ski. I like the TNK better tho. 4FRNT is a good choice, and there durability has gotten alot better in recent years.
my 06 stls were lighter than the scratch wrs. if you really want to use a light ski you should ski for the first half of the day with a heavy ski and then put on the stls. i almost forgot there were skis on my feet
how are the stl's for all mountain and in the park...
anyone use the ar6's?
I'm not shure which ski you should get eventhought I have the ar6's but I havent ridden them yet, but you should consider buying a longer ski like in the 180 range.
if your going 60/40 all mountain youd probably want something wider than the stls, if you really want 4frnt the msp would be better for all mountain
weight doesn't really matter...at least between different park skis, they are all gonna be way light.
ill be super rich and own mt.hood and let everybody from ns ski for free... except freezed
to help reduce weight, rossi used smaller edges on the wrs, just thought i should put it out there. you might also want to look into chronics, super durable, medium stiffness, and handle amazingly on hardpack, super poppy too, the only downside is they're a little more work to butter with due to the adde stiffness.

Gesr Pimp: I might just hook you up.
I havent ridden ar6s, but I rode ar5s for about 6 weeks, then went back to my scratches and i like the scratches ALOT more. But then again that was 168 FS's vs. 176 ar5s and i'm 5'5.
