Replying to Re-Entering the Ski World and Looking to Buy Skis
I used to own the Armada AR6 (2010 - 171cm) and I loved them. They just don't seem to make them like this anymore. Full sidewall, Full Camber, 80mm-90mm wide, Stringers, lightweight, >20m Radius. They were a perfect east coast park ski and a perfect carving ski. Super light and responsive. you could charge them and play around with them.
Everything seems relatively washy now with preference to wideness, short radius, low flex, and rockers. It's like everyone has/sells the alpha series from way back.
I am looking for the modern version of the AR6 2010. Does that exist anymore? I want a big jump jumping ski that can fit in this slot in my quiver.
From what I have seen I am considering (I don't know much about them):
Faction CT 1.0
Faction Prodigy 1.0
