VideogrooveGuys, what you think, which models of this season will be better as daily driver?
Armada JJ Zero 185cm or Armada Tracer 118 188cm?
And second question, is light skis like JJ Zero or Chetler's 2019 have any cons if compare it with more heavie opponents like usual JJ, Tracer 118 and e.t.c?
What is your style of skiing? The JJ Zero is going to be more playful, but I’ve heard that the Tracer still has some of those playful Armada qualities. Although, I’ve read that the new ARV 116 is a bit more stable than the old JJ, but still pretty playful obviously as it is Armadas “freestyle pow ski”. I’ve also heard that the Tracer gets a rocker/taper update next year which makes them a bit more playful.
JJ Zero- most playful
Arv 116- updated JJ, still super playful, but more stable than JJ
Tracer- Most stable, but still has playful qualities
I hope that wasn’t confusing, I feel like I used the word playful a lot haha.
I find it easier to charge a bit harder on a “heavier” ski. It would probably be easier to push a ski as hard as you can that’s ~2300g per ski as opposed to ~2000g per ski. Those aren’t exact numbers, but you get the idea. It’s nice to have a ski with a little bit of beef to it from time to time. I wouldn’t think that the 2019 BentChet would be bad at all.
