(GIRLS!) any feeback on armadas?
I'm looking into some new skis, park and big mtn. I'm liking the ARW, Cantika and TSTw and just looking for some feedback because I've never been on Armadas for more than part of a day.
Also I'm 5'4 and weigh 110ish, the sizes on TSTw jump from 165 to 174. I have a big mtn ski that is 161 right now and I think its too short but 174 seems like a big jump.
What are your thoughts? Thanks

yea thats pretty big, i would l say no bigger then 166. Then again its all preference. I'm 5'7 150lbs and I ride 163 scott punisherrs and 168 lib tech free rides.
Looking to buy a pair of used 166cm Armada AR7's
Op i would stick with the 164 if I where you, it will be just about the same height as you, and unless your skiing some really big lines I dont think there would need for you to size up to a 175. Also since you only weigh like 110 I think you might end up getting over powered by a 175 ski. But this is just my opinion, and the only person you should listen to is your self. If you think the ski will be to long then it will be to long.

i am a guy and ride these skis, but since OP made this thread into a sexist environment i will withhold my valuable information
What's your skiing ability? If you're the 'best damn skier on the mountain' like I am, then you'd be fine with a bigger ski.
Also you're not talking about getting a single ski for big mtn and park are you? (if so then, this answers the first question).

My girlfriend who is 5'6 had the 164 tst last season and lived them. She also had the 169 k2 misbehaved and found them just to much. The tst is a very nible ski and she could throw it around and carve them happily. They were big enough that she ended up using them as her main powder ski for whistler over the misbehaved.
lol i love how no girl replied

I appreciate the guys responses, especially since not a single girl decided to look at the post haha
I just wanted to try and get girls to read it also if anyone else had those skis so yes please tell me your valuable information
For big mtn skis, I compete in FWQ comps, I have a pair of 161 4frnts which I love for trees because they're still short enough to maneuver tight turns but in a few of the comps I did (the snow was shit for 2 of them also) I definitely would have liked something longer/more stable but a lot of the skis I look at jump from 164ish up to 174ish with nothing in the middle
I have my friends pair of the girls version of Solomon galaxy's for my park skis which are fun but kind of beat up. I do occasional slope comps or rail jams but also like to regularly ski. any info on armadas (or any company) park/allmtn skis and big mtn skis would be prime, thanks guys
