I purchased these skis this fall after looking around for a good park ski. When I first started using them I realized that they are a fairly stiff ski but if you know what you're doing you can still butter around on them a bit. The ski itself has added protection underfoot for lengthened life in the park and after a season of back yard jibbing and park skiing they've held up fine. However, the tail of one of my skis is starting to delaminate. This has also happened to a friend of mine who is riding the same skis. Also, i tore a chunk of the edge of the top sheet out earlier this year when I hit a rock but it appears to have had no affect on the ski. Other than those issues the ski has held up extremely well without any coreshots. The ski handles well on the big jumps as well as the rails. However, on steeper terrain the ski feels slightly jittery. Overall the skis have been great and they should last another season.
the armada ar7 is a great park ski, it has a good amount of flex and is great on jumps. The actual graphics are pretty sick. it has lasted me a whole season so far with only a little damage. if u are looking for an all around park good park ski i would recommend this one
