Yo, check this out, NEED advice - 3 park skis
I'm 6'0", 215 lbs, Advanced skier....So far I have a 185 ARV 07, mainly for pow and all mountain, but def for park too. I havnt even skiied them yet, im sure they're a great one ski quiver, but they are super flexy i can tell and not that poppy. So I'm kinda looking for a smaller, stiffer park ski. Heres my options with my college budget.
Dynaster TM 07 - 182 - $230 Shipped NEW - Had the original TM and really like the poppyness, but downside is I kinda want to try a new ski.
Volkl Karma 07 - 177 - $225 shipped I think, USED - SEems stiffer, good park all mountain ski i assume? Downfall is that its used and has been drilled once. (might not be a option)
ARmada ar5 06 - 176 - $200 shipped, NEW - I really don't know shit aobut this ski, really the one Id llike to hear the most reviews on. Only thing i dont want is it to be more flexy than the arv, but i think its stiffer?
So what ski would i have the most fun on fuckin around mostly just in the park and occasional groomers??
Can anyone give me a quick comparison and/or review of the ar5s????
I'd say TM's. the other 2 may feel a bit short though I think the karma did come in a longer length like 184 or something and at your size you will probably want a ski as stiff as the karma.
ive got 185 karmas and theyre really nice and stiff
I would stay away from skis shorter then 180cm at your size. I had the 07 tm's and loved them to death, they are a supper fun ski, with alot of life in them, and you can ride them forever and they never lose their life unlike other skis. If you can get them for that price new then DO IT.
the karmas are going to be stiffer than the tm's so if i were you i would get those since you already have arv's which are quite soft. but based on those prices i would deffintly go with the tm's, $5 more for a brand new ski over a used/drilled ski. i think you should look around a little more to see if you can get a good deal on some new karmas.
