06 STL's, AR5's, Or Scratch FS
Ok this is the last one i am either gonna get one of these skis next year. I ski a lot of park and go on groomers and powder once in a while. Which ski do u guys think is the best? remember i ski mostly park.
stls... cause they are the best..
is that enough
go with the scratch u will love em....if not then 4frnt..
scratch fs are great at park, pipe, all mountain, really versatile ski
ar5s are good for everything

Armada just trust me
steve did make the playoffs hatters wanna hate lovers wanna love i dont even want none of the above iwanna piss on u -Rkelly my boy
can yu give percentages of how much yu ski everything? cause i mean if yu ski like half park half all mountain mayb sumthing like the arv would be a better fit? but from my experience the ar5's are the shit.
(p.s. its better if yu give more information i.e. your weight and ability level to recommended a ski to you)
I skied all of next year skis and there is nothing that is close to the stlsin terms of versability.
the ski is the best park ski I skied with. they have so much pop and are super stable at high speed and on landings.
They carve really well on any kind of terrain and give you a feeling similar to riding 2-3 inches of powder all the time on decently groomed trails.
Seriously, i couldnt tell you how good those skis are using words.
And they are helding up pretty well. At least me, Jean-Denis and all of our friends out there riding those skis ad way less durability oproblems then they had with other companies.. and believe me I tested a shit load of skis

trust your icon, go with the most pimpest ski alive...the 06' AR5
Stl's were soo sick this year, and next year they're going to be alot better (if they can be). Not to mention they look sick.
'Duran Duran bought Armada, Armada bought Microsoft, Microsoft bought MSP and AOL, AOL owns Time4 which owns the MountainSportsMedia which owns SKi, Skiing and RIP Freeze... so Armada now owns McDonalds and Coke.
dude..... no matter what people say, you'll make another thread next fall. and its mixed feelings. no matter what ski you get, you'll be happy with it. its all personal preference... so buy some skis... and get used to them.... STLs... way soft..... pretty much 90% park. AR5's... pretty good everywhere... but good in park...... Scratches.. park, but will work everywhere.

What the fuck all you do is make stl and ar5 threads. It is getting pretty annoying.

Listen, the STL's are garbage. Trust me. Rediculously soft and skinny, you'll probably break them.
Scratches? You might as well buy last year's. Or the Scratch from 2 years ago. They're the exact same ski. Plus then your money goes into some fat cat Euro's pocket. Everybody wants that right?
You have to go with the AR5. Not only because it's the right thing to do, but because it's far and away the best ski, it also looks the best, and you're supporting a company you can feel good about giving your money to. Support those that support you.

Our greatest glory consists not in never falling. But in rising every time we fall.
id say any of those skis are sick. i have spent a whole season on both the stls and the scratches and they are both sick.
and i have rode the ar5's and they are dank to.
you cant go wrong with any ski on that list, and if you read this post you will realize that half of the people that are giving opinions are so biased that you shouldnt even listen (that only includes my first post)
go with the stls for the ultimate sickness.
I would say STL's or AR5's, basically go with watever yu can get a better deal on. there both good.
The scratches are not the same as last years...
wider and more stable / stiffer, amazing ski.
though I havent tried the 2006 ar5 I cant tell you how they ride but they certenly look very good.
IT'S GONNA RAIN!!!!!!!!
the scratches are wider this year and they are wider then the ar5 and teh stl so i would go with the scratch if you are going to be sking some powder plus they are sick in the park
doesn't matter all good skis.
ar5s are so funn in slightly tracked powder,i dont know if i would want any other skis made for slightly tracked powder.so much pop,so fun just diving in and popping out of the powder
STL's for sure. Best park ski out. Anyone who thinks they're garbage obviously doesn't know what a park ski is and would rather have a race ski with a twin-tip.
they will all work very well all over the mountain but i would say go with the 06 ar5's just because they have a hot purple lady on them

like i said in april, get the ar5, amazing in the park, awesome on groomers, and suprizingly wonderful in powder

ACLs suck dick
the STL and all of this comming 4frnt skis have raised their prices insanly... i mean it could be a really good ski.. .but for what it costs its not worth it at all..
i would say AR5 for versitility... scratches are goos and all but i have seen them to break more than armada... but who knows... they could have changed the way they build them....
i would say go for the cheepest.. DEFFANATLY not the 4frnt...
check for youself how much they cost.. check out procter jones
ar5's all the way, they ski well everywhere and have really thick edges
