i just got some ar6s in a size 166 and im 5 foot 6, 110 pounds. i havent skied them, but i have them mounted at 1.5 back with griffons, and its a pretty light setup. ive only pressed them around in my basement, and the tips are really easy to press, but the tail is a different story. the tails are really stiff for me, i cant even get the tips to stay more than an inch or two off the ground when i lean back to try to hold a press on my tails. whats nice about the stiff tail is it makes it really good for skiing all mountain, pipe, and jumps due to pop and edge hold. im also using them for 60% park and 40% just cruising around on groomers just jibbing around. the ar6s are a perfect non symmetrical all mountain park ski, but the wall is a perfect symmetric all mountain park ski. its really your preference if you want a symmetrical sidecut and symmetrical flex (walls) or a non-symmetrical ski with a soft buttery fun tip, and a really stiff tail (ar6).
pm me with any questions on the ar6 too
good point man. i really like the flex of the ar6 in the tip, its nice and soft, but in the tail its insanely stiff for a smaller person like me. for someone bigger, i think the ar6 has a perfect flex pattern for ski flex to weight ratio
