Help - Stuck between Armadas
Currently riding some Armada Pipe Cleaners, but they have been to hell and back, so need something new.
I am torn between:
- AR7 181
- ARV 185
- Pipe Cleaners 181
I have loved my pipe cleaners, but I feel I need something a bit more playful to help bring my skiing on.
I ski about 50% park...50% all mtn...with indoor sessions through summer (but they dont matter)
I am 6"1 / 190lbs...and can ski quite agressively.
Basically...will I notice much difference between the AR7's and the Pipe Cleaners (enough to justify the switch over)...
Or would having the ARV help me to bring my jibbing and jumping on more?
If you liked your pipe cleaners but want a more playful ski. I'd say go to the AR7. I love mine. But I also use pipe cleaners. Pipe cleaner to the ARV is a much bigger difference.
no experience with the pipe cleaners, but personally I'd go with the AR7

If you want more playful than the pc, go with the 181 thall.

I want to start learning how to butter now...it's something I have never got around to practicing.
Will I find this a lot harder on the AR7 than the ARV?
The ARV is a little softer than the AR7, so it might be a little easier for butters, but I would still say go for the AR7. I'm about the same weight and height as you and I love my AR7s. Solid on big jumps but still playful on jibs, and you'll still be able to butter, even with the stiffer flex
Thanks mate. I think deep down I knew I would get the 7's...but the ARVs looked so tempting.
