TDD536I have the '16 infamous and am happy with their performance in the park and on groomers. They're quite easy to butter at 180lbs. All of the skis you listed are a good choice, i'd take the punx over the infamous though, the infamous is basically a budget version of the punx.
Shoey-Skii had this years b dogs, honestly such a great ski so poppy, while still being buttery and overall holding an edge good and being able to take them everywhere,
peteythefishGo with the B-dogs if you're looking for butter! They have a good shape which allows them to preform well in all areas.
The ARV 86 is a rockered AR7. that means that its a stiffer, park oriented ski that will turn better and be a little more "catch free" than the AR7. (The AR7 is a 86mm full cambered ski).
Armadas build quality and performance is insane! The Infamous are notorious for exploding. Tip delam and losing edges are chronic problems with the Infamous.
Scoops1415is it worth the money to go up to the bdogs or are the arv 86's a better bang for your buck
