Replying to Pls help me pick the right sis..
Can anyone pls help me pick the most suitable ski for my skill lvl and my 'style'?
I'm looking for a pair of all mnt twin tip skis that would do good on any kind of piste (groomed, hard packed, icy, small and medium size moguls), and for the ocasionally off piste runs (back country and shallow powder). I will probably do 80% on piste and 20% off piste.
I am a mid lvl intermidiate skier but i just moved in a ski resort so i hope that till next year to get at least to a low end advanced lvl.
I am 1,86 m tall (6.1 feet), an i weight about 90 kgs (200 pounds).
The skis that i found so far are from armada: the el rey, the ar7 and the arv, but from what i've seen the ar7 are more of a park skis so i'll ignore them for now.
I would totally get the el reys since they cost 400 $ but i think they are a bit too stiff for my current ski skill, also i coulnt find too many reviews (found mostly reviws from the sites that sell them, and i dont trust them that much).
The arv's seem like a good choice but they are a bit too expensive (600$ w/o bindings), but that woulnt stop me from buying them if i would be sure that i can progress and use them for 3-4 years as my one quiver ski.
Also I would apreciate if some1 could tell me if there are other skis that would fit me better and are in the 500$ range, and if you could sugest the lenght of the skis.
Also what bindings should I get, and where to mount them.
p.s. pls excuse my grammar but english is not my native language.
