Yet another AR7 VS THALL question
Hi guys I have to make a choice between the thall (181cm) and the ar7(176). Just wanted to know which one would be better for my height and weight (Im 6'3'' and I weight 150lbs)............I am leaning towards the thall because of my height but i wanted to know how the thall would handle out of the park (I ski 80% park and 20% all mountain on the east coast). Thanks guys!
Have both love them! But I like the thalls better get those!
skiin is life yo!
u should be skiing the 181 no matter which one you choose. t hall has a softer tip and tail while the ar7 is stiff throughout. they ski similarly otherwise. ar7 will be more solid on big jumps. t hall will be more buttery for rails. pick which one suits your style.
iight, but would the thall be a mess outside the park? I know the ar7 is stiffer so its fine but im just worried about how the thall would handle.
the thall is still stiff underfoot. still rips at full speed on groomers. it has a soft tip and tail but its not a noodle.
keep in mind, its a park ski. so dont expect epic flotation in powder, and it certainly wont be as forgiving as a rockered ski in crud. but it is very light and maneuverable, so taking the occaisonal lap outside the park in variable snow isnt a problem.
I'm 6'2" and would get a longer ski than either of those, so definitely go with the longer T-Hall.
Alright guys thanks for the input. Im getting the 181 cm Armada Thalls, the 2012 Rastafari ones; thats the whole reason I had to choose. Thanks guys +k for all of ya
