Hey dudes and ladies. Need some advice.
Finally graduating from my piece of shit Line Invaders. They actually held up well for a solid 4 years. I must confess at the time of purchase I was more of a snowboarder looking to get into some mild freestyle skiing.
Now, while I'll still throw in a snowboard day, you could essentially consider me a full-time skiier and looking for a serious improvement in the park. So here's my stats, yo:
6'0 even, 160 pounds
I'd say advanced skiier. I can slide boxes, rails, and do small spins. I ride the east coast (springs & wisp what up) but typically do 1-2 west coast trips a year. Last year was Telluride (bonkers, by the way) and this year it's Big Sky. I take those trips with the Pops and some co-workers, so not much park skiing there. Need to be able to ski it all, and well. I was able to ski just about everything at Telluride with relative ease on 4-year old, falling apart Invaders, so having a true "all-mountain" ski isn't all that important. The way I see it, I can make do on a park-ier ski, but the dropoff will be far greater with an mountain-ier ski in the park.
Too much rambling---The point: Considering Line Afterbangs, Line Chronics, or Armada Alpha 1s. Any user reviews, thoughts, or alternate suggestions (I'm open to others) are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for the help, ya crazy dutch bastards.
