hey i am looking for a new pair of all mtn/touring skis and am thinking of the these. any suggestions? i already have atomic bent chettlers and dont wont a huge pair of pow skis. just something i can mount with marker dukes and ski all mtn. any help would be great! +karma for good replys
Im on Armada TSTs as my everyday ski and absolutely love em. Fat tip rocker for pow but slims to 103 underfoot so they can rip hardpack/groomers too. CRJs are my deep pow ski and theyre a ton of fun in those conditions, but arent great when things start getting harder/mashed.
Blizzard Cochise best all round ski youll find for ripping groomers to surfing powder. i found the TST to have exesive tip flap at speed on hard snow. They did hold an edge OK but nothing like the Cochise!!! Rate the TST 85/100 compared to the Cochise 99/100 comparing those two. DPS wailer112 is sick also. If ya like 4frnt look at the YLE also. great ski!!
Yep that might be a good one also. I always wanted to try those skis but never got the chance. The helix has pretty good reviews every year. They still make them so that says somthing also. Man if you can demo some of these thats always your best bet. I thought I would love the TST as an example for a one quiver but I dnt think so now after the Cochise. I reall want that ski now. I would be willing to sell my ep pros to get that ski!
I don't really know of anyone who's toured on them yet, but I imagine they would tour pretty well. They would definitely ski anything you through at it as far as conditions go. It's not the lightest ski out there, but it's not so heavy that you'd hate life going up.
