you have 3 verry different skis
the recoil i would sy is the best becayse it will have the most cambet onger foot for all myn and ice
the 2012 has rocker so it is good for surfase swaps and it is more veritale
the ace of spades i s a full symetric ski and the best park ski
i will suggest the armada ar7 it is verry versitale an an amazing park ski. it has no rocker and is part side wall and cap construction. it is alot like the recoil but with no rocker in the tip and is a little skinier
I have the 177 Ace of Spades from before they got rocker.
They kick ass on hardpack days. They rip groomers and lay down a line like a decent carving ski. They are unforgiving in the park, but they have tons of pop and they're a lot of fun. They're also quite heavy for what they are, and quite expensive, so possibly not great if you're hitting a lot of rails.
He must be made of money, they're not cheap planks especially for park skis!
Apparently due to all the metal in them they rocker a little bit over time anyway. Maybe Nordica just decided to do it before they leave the factory. I think it's 15cm tip and tail rocker on the 177 length with 3 or 5mm of rise, so hardly any really.
