Matthew_DenhamYo next season you might want to consider the faction candide 1.0s or the 2.0s. No one I know had any luck with Armada durability this year, including myself. Faction has a better reputation with durability than Armada, and when I broke my Armadas it took them 7.5 weeks to warrantee them. The faction 1.0s will have some rocker next year if thats what your looking for, if you're looking for fat skis with rocker the 2.0s should do ya. I wouldn't leave On3p out of consideration either, I heard they're durability is on point too.
The armada durability thus year is true.. The reason I stopped skiing the al dente was because I chipped the nose real bad, cracked and ripped of the steal edge on the side and under my binding I actually managed to loosen up the surface so the whole binding hanged loose. The al dente wasn't so durable, at least not for me
