ZypherKartels my dude. I have skied the 106s for a day and they were super fun but by the looks of what you wrote, they're too noodley. Armada skis have a naturally soft flex and these just felt like slightly wider park skis and the Kartels will give you much more stability when jibbing off natural features. As well, the Kartels have rocker in both the tip and tail and if you plan to land switch off piste, that will be a perk because while the ARVs have twin tip, they only have tip rocker really. Speed wise, both bomb but I felt as though the ARV's would slip out easily when carving at higher speeds but that could be because they were mounted closer to center and slightly de-tuned. Overall, they're both amazing skis. If you have a sweet deal on the ARVs pull the trigger. Otherwise look into the older SFBs (Ones with the 108mm waist) or go for the Kartels.
cydwhitARV is softer throughout, not quite as stable / chargeable.
Both are super fun, super versatile. The Kartel is gonna be a little better at straight ripping, while the ARV is a little more jibby and soft. I think the ARV is probably pretty similar to the old Bacon before it got skinnier.
I think the more I was just skiing park the more I would prefer the ARV, while I would choose the Kartel for steeper, more demanding mountains, but I only had a few days on the Kartel, should have an update on that here in a month or so.
im a huuuuuge fan of ARVs (had only them my first year at squaw and used them for literally every part of the mtn) but yeah, i think for your uses you'd prefer the kartel as it's stiffer and a little chargier from what i know
