I've got a pair and I absolutely love them. I had a pair of suspects before as well and i found them way too stiff and a bit on the heavy side. My AR7's on the other hand are much lighter and the nose is pretty soft so they are really playful, and they do have a bit of a stiffer tail which is nice for bigger jumps. They are also super durable, I've had mine for a little over a season and the sidewalls are still in mint condition and the edges don't show any signs of cracking. I would highly recommend you pick yourself up a pair! You defiantly won't be disappointed.
Here's an insanely good deal on a pair of 171's with look PX 12's
Hope this helped!
