I was thinking about getting a pair of Armada skis this season and was wondering if I could get some feedback from people who have skied them. I was wondering how they were in the park, all mountain, and some technical information like stiffness and durability. Thanks

I was also wondering about a size. Not sure between 176 and 180. I am about 5' 9' 175lbs
ive rode them a couple days this last winter, i thought they were better around the mountain, than in the park
its the stiffest twin ive rode, just bairly stiffer than the pe's but rides the same, on small jumps they felt sweet but im sure they would just rule huge kickers,
they felt very fast and super stable, id recomend them to anybody that likes a solid ski.
there the perfect size i think... im use to bc's and fs's and this is right imbetween, maybe the best all around ski ive rode... tied with the pe
im 5'9 175 and ride 182's 180's and sometimes 188's. so id go 180 on the ar5
i rode the thinner one (AR?) in whistler for 2 days in april. in the park, pipe and on rails they were awesome. skiing around on them wans't that good. it felt a bit restricted not being able to lay them over early in the day and have a carve but made up for it with how nice thy rode in they park. im found them to be really soft and they had heaps of pop. despite being very soft they still felt strong. they were fantastic with switch take offs and landings and bombing around fakie was easy aswell.
really good ski if you wanna ride heaps pipe, park and rails. i usually ride Pocket Rockets which is probably why i found thend them a little different. if i had the money i would definately purchase them though. was really impressed i give them 95%.
off of big tables they don't feel super stable...they are damn stiff which is very very nice becuase they are going to make your landings solid..i would really check out this years pe's they are a super solid ski that i would recomend over the armada...ar5..

why is it that every 2 days everyone posts another 4frnt and armada post? look back through the fucking pages and youll find your answer
when an officer pulls you over: gee son your eyes look red, have you been drinking?
respond: gee officer your eyes look glazed have you been eating doughnuts?
but its way easier to make a new one
if u cant find any ski shops in western canada, try fresh sports in calgary, they carry armada skis and shirts and other armada stuff
