Im currently rocking the Alpha 1, its an awesome butter and rail ski. Does everything super well, and the early rise in the tip and tail rock for butters. But my fav moves are butter 5's and 7's. They do well on medium size jumps when you are landing forward, but on bigger jumps the tails flex out on me a bit. Im 210lbs though. But landing switch on the medium and large jumps is easy breezy on these; the tips are stiffer than the tails.
They feel soooooo f***ing light its crazy. I have them mounted up with Rossi FKS 14's, but they spinn crazy easy and go invert great too. All in all if I had my way armada should just stiffen the tail a hair and the ski would be perfect, but its still sick.
Hope this helps
