youre def fine, and those are good skis
i forget when the ARV actually changed, like which years they actually modified it. I think the 2008 is right after they stiffened it a tiny bit. but generally speaking it's been pretty consistent for years and years. dope ski and like the others said, the fact that it sat around for years doesnt make it worse
if you need some context, go watch some armada riders' videos from 2003 2004 etc. any non-park shots, theyre using the original ARV cause back then the 90s waisted ARV was the "big mtn option" haha. now ask yourself if theyll serve your purposes!
