AceleTerriethis is just simply incorrect
NegromancerAfter 100+ days of rail abuse my 2014 AR7's have two edge cracks, some minor base scrapes, and top sheet chipping. They're still a rideable park ski which is fantastic.
My 2015 AR7's are also holding up excellently, not edge cracks or base damage after quite a bit of park riding.
If you're ski blew up after 3 days of riding then either they're faulty and need to be warrantied or your abusing your skis completely.
jackdonovanmy 2014 el Rey's sidewalls and core are separating from the base and edge after a season and they chipped really easily and lost their camber and pop super quick. However I have a pair of the Ar6s with the rat on them, not sure what year, which are still riding well and in pretty good condition, the base and edges and sidewall are great and the top sheet is super chipped, they have been used as a urban and summer setup ski and are still in good condition
SKI.INGYou're comparing Armada's price point ski to their flagship park ski though. Obviously there will be performance and durability differences.
