So heres the story, I had a pair of 180 ar5's(the second year they were in production, with the yellow buildings)... and after skiing them for 2 hard seasons the tail edge was popping out, I figured it was uncoverable by warantee seeing as I had abused the shit out of them and they were long over the warantee period. However, I sent them back to see what Armada would say, and low and behold they sent me a new pair of this years AR6's! I am SOOO stoked, I can't believe they did that, I figured at most they would repair the damage, man I am so happy. They also did the exact same thing for my buddy who had a ski that was also well beyond the warantee period. So props to Armada for helping me out, I am stoked to get out on these new babies.
