I was thinking about getting the pipe cleaners since the other ski i wanted were out of stock. I weigh 125 and 5'7 Money isnt an issue. I ski park 95% of the time. I ski 50% rails 50% jumps... Any info would be helpful +k to anybody who helps
I was wondering how it rides in the park and how it handles rails... i saw another thread that said as long as u keep the ski waxed, its fine on rails and wanted to know if anybody else had other opinions
I am retiring a pair from 08 this year. They were great when I rode park often and handled the rest of the mountain well. A little noodly for the bigger stuff though. I am not a big rail guy but I do spend a little time on them and honestly they didnt hold up that great. Keep in mind though that's not what these were designed for. The bases are made for speed and the edge hold is outstanding as advertised. A great pipe and carving ski, but the softer base doesn't lend itself to rails very well honestly.
I signed up on here solely to answer this thread because I'm in a helpful mood.
Hope the info finds you well.
They are great skis, very similar to the Armada Ar7 execept thay have race base and they are slightly lighter and softer in flex. The race base is a higher quality base than the S7 base on the Ar7 but you need to wax it more frequently, otherwise is becomes less durable than the S7 base. The benefit of this however, it that when the race base is freshly waxed it becomes faster and more durable than the S7 base. They have the exact same edges (2.5) as the rest of the Armada park skis so durablility shouldn't be an issue on the rails.
