FACTION 3.ZERO vs Armada Norwalk vs Armada JJ
Which would you get for an everyday LCC ski? I'm coming from 08/09 Obsetheds. Like charging in all snow conditions, trees, and might end up in some moguls when the snow is bad.. Would love to hear some suggestions. Have heard the build of Armadas are lacking, but who knows.. Give me the pros and cons! Thanks
I don't know anything about the Factions. I have 185cm JJs and I love them. They're amazing. They ski everything and excel when the snow is solid and shitty. I've also skied them in Japan and Colorado. Best skis in the world.
The Norwalks are just directional and slightly fatter JJs. Not worth it. The JJs float enough.
This is not entirely true. Yes the Norwalk uses similar design features as the JJ, but it is a bit stiffer and doesn't have tail rocker. If you're really more of a charging skier and don't throw a ton of tricks, I would absolutely pick the Norwalk over the other options.
