good first post.
I love the ar7 i mounted miine at center and they are great for freeriding and also shred the park. the flex is awesome stiff under foot and soft in the tip and tails. mine are still pretty new and in the break in stage so it does take awhile to be able to use the nice flex that the ar7 has.
