If they still sold these things, I would buy another pair. I would recommend that if anyone owns a pair of these things and you're thinking of retiring them, I would tell you to remount those bad boys at true center and rock them for another season. No matter how much abuse I put on these things, they still seem to hold up. These skis are, in my opinion, exactly how a park ski should be, dependable, indestructible, and super soft. I highly recommend these skis.
These skis perform AWESOME. They're noodle-y and they have a super bomb-proof design. They have a 84 mm platform underfoot which is hella-tight. They float well enough in 6-8inches of Colorado pow and I guess you could make them work as a one ski quiver. They are super light weight and slay park.
The design is kind of weird, but I don't really care that much about design in relation to performance. But I guess the design is cool enough for even the most gangsta skier to be afterbangin' on.
I got these skis for free from my brother, but I would have been fine paying $300 for them brand new. I think its a good value any way you cut it.
I got them in 177 cm, which, to my knowledge, is the longest length these skis come in. I have these skis perfectly center-mounted even though they're not a symmetrical ski, and I think they're just fantastic. Since I'm about 6'2" and about 200 lbs, I need the largest ski they make. The fit is perfect and I would highly recommend mounting these things at measured center. These skis spin super nice and they make hopping around on rails a breeze.
Alright, lets get something out of the way early on, I am technically the third owner of these skis. I would imagine that they have been skied on about 120 times in the last year and a half and they are pretty beat up and have stood the test of time. Now on to the review...In my opinion, these skis are super rad. The flex on these skis are super, super soft. I have friends with Armada's that brag about how soft their skis are and my response to them is "Oh, really? You ain't seen nothing yet" and then I show them the flex of my skis. Take a look at the last photo to view the flex of these skis. I can get these skis to flex to about 90 degrees. These skis are a perfect definition of a ski that someone would compare to a noodle. If you like to butter, these things will do the trick. Also, these skis will lose their camber after about 60 days on the mountain. I think this is a perk of having soft skis, because now I have early rise park-rocker in my skis. It just makes getting up on those tips so much easier.
These things have been abused. TO THE MAX. They still kick ass. The bases are my only complaint, they're just to damn soft. I've torn out a bunch of base material and it seems that I'm petexing these bad boys every week. I've blown out some of the base near the edges and its starting to have an affect on the edges and I'm starting to lose part of the edge directly under my boot on the left ski. But given that I've put about 30 days of abuse on these things this past season and that the previous two owners probably put 80 + days on them, I would say they're holding up really well. Also, the top sheets have been chipping pretty hardcore ever since I got 'em. If you blow up the pictures, you're probably be able to see it. I don't think it has affected the performance of the ski yet. All in all, these things are holding up pretty darn well.
