ARV 106, K2 Marksman, Faction CT 3.0, Faction Prodigy 3.0
Looking at buying an all mountain ski thats fun to mess around with and can handle the pow, want it to last a few seasons as well. Not gonna hit rails, only jumps occasionally. want your guys advice. i think i can get marksmans for the best price but they do have a lot of rocker for the days when theres no fresh snow.
thanks boys and girls.
Marksman are a great everyday ski. There are stiff enough underfoot to still carve hard so for days with no new snow they still rip. They can handle the fresh pretty well for a narrower ski too. Certainly more an all mtn ski then the arv which are pretty soft.
Have the 106 and it's a blast. Wish it was a little stiffer, but I can still ski it in everything from low tide to 5-6 inches of fresh and it performs well in everything (relatively speaking). Can't comment on the other skis, but if you're looking for a playful ski and like to mess around on the whole mountain go with the arv. It's not going to charge down variable terrain, but if you ski it with a centered, balanced stance it will reward you.
