        Overall

        Loved them for every minute I rode on them no complaints at all. Only thing I could see would be the heel piece ripping out- but that was also due to 3 year old bindings.  Awesome skis, 1 of 125 for that size. They now sit on my wall with my whole collection.

        Performance

        Loved them. I wanted something that was a little quicker on the snow as living in pa we don't have much of run in on larger features. That said they were like rockets when waxed correctly.

        Design

        Clean graphics- recieved quite a few compliments from gapers- so idk.

        Value

        I thought they were a great value.

        Fit

        .They were 171 and I think they were the right size for me. I am 5'11 and 165 pounds.

        Characteristics

        They were stiff but they should be for a pipe ski built for speed- they were perfectly fine though for any type of press/butter action!

        Durability

        They lasted for 1.5 seasons. They had no major problems until January of this season. The heel piece of my binding ripped out. After a quick fix they lasted for another month and then ripped out again. After almost 2 seasons of abuse I can say I was dissapointed though. They were still in perfect shape with that exception.

        Overall

        I love this ski. Best pair i've owned. Strong, light, fast, and flexible. I have mine mounted with 06 Rossi Scratch 140.

        Performance

        I don't ever have to hike as far as other kids for rails or jumps. These skis are fast as hell. They carve in anything and pop really well.

        Design

        Same layout as the AR6 with stronger and lighter materials. The race base really helps for going off big tables and riding pipe. The graphics are simple, which really doesn't bother me.

        Value

        It was worth the money for me. I paid about 600 with tax. For the way these skis rip i didn't mind at all.

        Characteristics

        The tips are super soft like the AR6 and the tails are stiff which makes popping out of pipe amazing. Fun to butter too!

        Durability

        Like the other review i agree with the soft bases. You have to be careful with them. Otherwise they are strong as hell. The edges are stronger than the AR6 which is awsome because i do rails the most. The only other problem i have with them is that the top sheet chips away, but whatever.

        Overall

        great ski and super fun to ride, i feel like it is a ski degisined just for me cause im not to much into rails. the waranty policy on these is fairly strict though. if there is any evidence of a rail slide on them they will not be waratied. also, i am 6'2 and 150 pounds. i use dallabello krypton rampage boots and they are mounted with fks 155 race stock bindings.

        Performance

        these things are fast. i was jumping on them this weekend and i didnt need to start nearly as high up as all the other kids skiing. im fairly confident its because of that race base. waxing these skis often helps a ton.

        Design

        same basic layout as the ar6. basicly armada r&d this ski then had atomic build the base including race edges on it

        Value

        i paid just under 630 for them with tax and i couldn't be more pleased with my purchase.

        Characteristics

        there super soft but are the hardest poping ski that i have ever ridden. they carve extremely well on groomers as well as on crud.

        Durability

        the bases are extremely soft. if you ski somewhere where there are a lot of small rocks or hard ice chunks to hit, you're gonna mess them up, you'll just have to face that fact, but waxing them often will help with that.
