        Overall

        Smooth as Butter. I dunno what ARG stands for SAB for Smooth as butter would be more appropriate !

        Performance

        Totally! It was my second time in really deep powder, I mean really deep. Salomon Freeski is nothing compared to where I skied. And I skied so easily on them, off course it took some time to adapt on those wide-ass skis but less then I thought. Skiing in powder has become too easy, infact if you simply know how to ski powder, skiing with ARG becomes effortless.

        Design

        Yeah, I mean it's original, fishes on skis, why not ?. But design isn't what I particularly look unless it is really awful or incredibly beautiful. Well, my freestyle skis (k2 domain) actually reflects the ground and I kinda like that but that's too personal and seeing this on ARG would have pleased me but who cares... It wont prevent me from skiing! The ski looks solid

        Value

        I actually didn't pay, I personally find the price really expensive, I would have never spent that money on skis but I guess it's worth the price.

        Fit

        The sizing I think (and recommend) should be 5cm taller than you

        he sensation.. Oh my Lord ! Smooth as butter, at some point I even wondered if manufacturers could find a way to make it feel smoother than with the ARG.. I mean, it's like a boat on the sea, it cuts the snow as it flows down in the pow, nothing is an obstacle

        Characteristics

        Flex has solid patter, being tough near the boot area which allows it to take hard pressures, as we all know we do put some pressure on this area of the ski.I'm definitely a specialist about flex but I wasn't shocked or badly surprised by the flex pattern.

        Durability

        Cliffs, stones and even rails. On cliffs it really absorbs the impact (it's not as if you don't feel anything but if know how to jump cliffs, the skis help you not to dive in the snow, somehow you ride away easily.). Trick are okay, I only done mute, tail 36s but I didn't feel any difficulty in grabbing or crossing.
