I need help choosing a ski!!!
i know there are thousands of these out there but i really do need help choosing a ski. i am 15 years old 5'10 and 150lbs if that might help? i live in the mid-west so most of the skiing i will be doing is on groomers with a ofasionl foot of "pow" but with that said i am an intermediate park rider. I am looking at armadas al dente and line blend because i like the wider ski. am I looking at the wrong thing these will be my first reall nice pair of park skis so i am kind of blind with what i am dooing. i dont want to speend alot like 400 mby 500. if your still reading ik that was alot and thank you for your help.
You can't go wrong with al dente's, armada makes the best skis in my opinion. I bought the 2014 pipe cleaners and they're light and good for all mountain too I got a deal on eBay and managed to get them for $206. Also the atomic Punx are a really good ski for park but not super good for powder and not too wide. I mean the t halls are a good ski I don't know too much about them but consider those too. Another great choice would be the line chronics, super durable, decently wide waist width and an all around great ski, definitely check those out. Hope this helped
By the sound of it either ski will work well for what you want, but as far as I know Line skis aren't nearly as durable as Armadas, so I'd put the Al Dente ahead of the Blends. At the end of the day, unless you want an absolute top of the line, performance based ski, then it just comes down to which ones of those you personally prefer and can get a good deal on.
