just a little fyi, armada's warranty dept. is off the charts! i got a pair of ants and the midsole mark was misprinted, causing my one of my bindings to be about 1.5 cms farther up than the other. not a huge deal, i didn't really notice it that much, but i called them up and they told me to send them in for a look. not three days later and i have new skis! they sent me new ones the day i called, they didn't even wait to see my skis. i have an extra pair of sticks, but if i didn't, i would have only been without skis for three days, that's really really fast and pretty much unheard of as far as warranty replacement goes. way to go armada!!!!
