i have an older pair of vct's i think the first year they were made with the square tails and i love them so much
only problem ive had is topsheet ships really easyilly i dunno if this is still a problem but if you had armadas already you know what to expect
stl is a great ski only problem is durabilty ive got a small core shot in mine plus a deep scratch or two and bent in my edge up at my tip when learnin 270 on plus top sheet chips. but if you can deal with cosmetic flaws like the top sheet then go for it their great skis
You're better off looking at some reviews in the review section. People ripping out edges most likely did a lot of jibbing and hit some rails so that edges came out, just like what can happen on every ski. Also core shots, they probably hit a rock, got a core shot like any other ski.
My MSPs so far are bombproff, pretty stiff ski but they are softening up and I like them more as I go. Next year STLs seem really improved...
