Sorry NS I hate to make this thread. I have searched and havent really found the exact answer im looking for. Last year was my first year skiing and I rode 168 salomon spks from like 06/07. Now my friend is starting up skiing and wants to buy my skis. So I have been looking and reading reviews but I still can't quite pick the right ski.
I'm 5'7" 135lbs. Still learning how to ride in the park. I would say about 60% park 40% all mtn. I will not be hitting any 80ft jumps or skiing any deep pow anytime soon. I just learned how to slide some rails and boxs this summer so I need something that can take some abuse on rails but is still soft and playful when screwing around in the woods and on little side trails.
The skis I have been looking at are Armada AR6(08/09 or 09/10), Volkl Wall(08/09), Line Invader(08/09), also been looking a little into Salomon Suspect(09/10). Now I have read many reviews on the suspect and heard they arent durable at all. But is there a warranty or something that comes with the ski so if the edge snaps off I can send them in to get a new pair?
These are just a few of skis that I have been looking at. So can someone please help me make a choice on what skis to get. And answer the question about the suspects. Oh and please dont recommend the Line Afterbang, I'm not that interested unless someone tells me something amazing about them.Thanks.
