So, im an east coast skier who has been skiing on 2015 Armada Alpha X's (171) for the past few years. No problems at all structurely, they are kinda bombproof but a put heavy, top sheet damage is defiently prominent as I like to ski a lot of park but also rip it up all over the mountain. I am thinking of getting new skis for next season but I don't know which ski to get or if i should size up to 177. I am about 5'9 and 160 lbs. I am thinking of sticking with armadas, because my alphas have been so good to me, but i do kind of want a more playful ski than the alphas were.
