Armada Triple J's in the Park!?
So what's everyone's opinions on Armada Triple J's (meant for powder) being rode in the park? Good or not? Yeah their 155cm but size doesn't matter to me I like a short ski.
I saw some guy riding his AK JJs in the park once. I felt bad for the skis. They have thinner edges than the park skis so id imagine they wouldnt hold up well.
SIP J.P, Sarah, Warnick, C.R., Shane, and all those lost.
I lap the park in my JJ's every now and then. Not the best for anything but still fun.
anything meant for powder isn't gonna hold up well in the park. they might ski fine, but you're gonna beat them to shit real quick for sure. you're better off getting some cheap park/all mountain sticks and using those for when you wanna lap the park.
btw you'll probably wanna look in gear talk for these kinds of questions in the future. it'll be a lot more helpful than posting in ski gabber.

I gotta be honest i've been riding JJ's this year in powder and i can't imagine people using them in park. They're way to wide and i'd imagine them getting in the way on rails or whatever. On the other hand, i've definitely been hitting backcountry feature and landing tricks with them so if you go in the park to practice tricks you later plan to use in the backcountry then sure, but i wouldn't use them as a primary park ski. Seems sort of wasted to be honest.
We love you JP
I wouldn't make it my designated park ski. I hit occasional rails and park jumps with my mordecai's though.
