Line Elizabeth VS Armada Alpha 2
New season is coming and I have to change skis. Last year I have ridden Armada AR6 but now I think I'd like something more buttery&playful, so thought about Line Lizzies 09/10 and Alpha 2 09/10. Which one would be better ? I will use'em on groomers(so which one will keep edge better), park, little pow, boxes, rails, butter, presses, hand drags/plants,small jumps(not bigger than about 10meters). I'm 165lbs.
Having skied both, I like the Elizabeth about 200 times more. It's a lot more playful and in my opinion the most fun ski you can get.
its hard to compare these two skis with each other since they are both so different...
I don't wanna talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper! I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
Gravity is a harsh mistress.
I know :) but I'd like to hear some opinions about elizabeth cause they're 120$ cheaper but I'm not sure with 110mm park ski if it will work on groomers.
the width would be fine, the lizzys will be softer than the halos
creativity comes to life in the darkness-surreal and dj balance
i am a proud owner of these alpha 2's you speak of. but having not skied the lizzy's i cant tell you which one to get but i can tell you how good the alpha is :)
The alpha 1 is the comp version basically and the alpha 2 is the general park rats version. Its durable, light, stiff and durable. haha The elf shoe and rocker on this ski is so sick cause it makes it ski incredibly tight, and makes it feel like a soft ski due to the rocker. But you dont have to sacrifice stability when going fast or hitting bigger jumps because really the ski is incredibly stiff compared to general park skis for the most part. If your skiing groomers for some part then the alpha will be 10x more fun than a soft ski because you can lock in those turns and get some hella tight slashes in cause of the tiny ass turn radius on them. Also carving off shit is the coolest thing with these because it is basically built for you not to have troubles with anything. I have no complaints with my alpha 2s and plan on keeping these till they physically cant slid down the mountain any more.
I did not proof read this so there will be grammer problems. in b4 grammar police
