end of story.
I ordered a pair last week after deciding between the walls/reno rockers and these...for the type of skiing i'm doing..i thought that these would suit me on none pow days...
There are a few youtube reviews from ski.com and they are all favorable. Here are a few of them:
I ordered them through one of the ski shops in town. They special ordered it through armada. I'm pretty sure any rep ski store can do that for you. I was going to go buy it in the states but being that our dollar sucks right now...it was cheaper to go through a canadian retailer...snowcovers in vancouver...they're online also.
These skis are a limited run so, it'll be hard to find more than one in a store...they were 650 canadian, although I was up in whistler last week an another store was selling them for 900...crazy.
Just wish they had had the Wester graphic on them instead of the old thall ski retread graph.
Sorry to rehash but I emailed armada about the new graphic on the alphas and if they'd be available soon. I emailed him today and he responded:
I'm figuring that it'll be next year's graphic.
Thanks for dropping us an email. The graphic on Jacob’s Alphas is for a new version that will be released in the future. That actual ski he is skiing is the Alpha 1, just with a top sheet that will be used down the road. The Alpha is partially the brainchild of Jacob and our engineer, so he has his choice of top sheets right now. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks.
