        Overall

        buy these skis they are great

        Performance

        It worked great in all sorts of snow. It shreds park and all mountain and was also good in pow

        Design

        I live the graphics of them. You get some questions about the strange animals but they are all good

        Value

        it was a great deal. the price tag is a little high but they are the most fun ski I have ever had

        Fit

        I am 6'2" and got the 181. It's the perfect size park ski for me.

        Characteristics

        I love the flex on these. They are soft enough to butter and just mess around on but stiff enough for those high speed huge landings

        Durability

        top sheet chipping is a little issue but nothing huge like line anthems

        Overall

        Love em !

        Performance

        realy good performance... fast ski ( because of the side cut) they are a perfect park ski, they slide like a beuty, my first day I was doing switch 270 in and 270 ins with the fresh edges and they slid insanely well.

        Design

        Its a pretty damm gnarly design, it matches exactly how I want to ski with them (goofy and fun) whats cool about these skis is that ever size has a different top layer so theres not realy any (coppying ) its hard not to be unique on the slopes with these skis

        Value

        i got mine for 575..... when I first tried my friends I decided I had to buy them no matter what, I had so much fun.

        Fit

        I have my 171s perfectly center mounted... its perfect for riding park. handles insane in switch! I bought them 171 and its a bit long for me but they are so flexy and responsive, its easy for me to handle them

        Characteristics

        Theyr pretty damm flexy.... it makes it easy to front flip bio and misty. Its almost as flexy as the invaders I would say but a bit less.

        Durability

        its no secret armada chips insanely. what u can do though is sand down the sides of ur top layer so that they chip less. im not sure yet how long theyre gonna last but also the flex kinda worries me( it dosnt inspire confidence in me)

        Overall

        Good ski, reasonable price, and durable. They are in the average range for width so more stable underfoot on rails, and they hold up well in speeds.

        Performance

        So far the performance has held up to every expectation, it is a sturdy ski on rails and hold up on the ice at faster speeds, i detuned the edges but they still hold, which is a good indication of the wood core and the flexing ability in the core.
        For Females i would go with the AR6 over the ARW if you are an expirenced skier, even though they are simular, the differences in the wood used is obvious once you try the two.

        Design

        Mark Paul Daren, Aka Mad-Steez is a sick artist and produces a lot of great paintings. His cartoons the Weenimals are a bit different but the older Armadas have more his paintig style, the 07-08s are a bit different, the bottoms are plain and i like that, the top sheets are different according to size, I have the rat and it is sweet.

        Value

        They are a bit expensive compared to simular skies from freeski companies but in par with the bigger names like k2, Volki, and Rossignol, actually a bit cheeper than some. So it is not a steal but it is fair.

        Fit

        The fit is perfect, and there are enough sizes to choose from that it is easier to choose a ski more simular to that of which you are used to skiing on, if you are looking for a new ski to replace an old one, or a gradual step up in size to try something a bit larger.

        Characteristics

        It is a stiffer ski than others but it has enought softness to butter aswell

        Durability

        Pretty durable compared to others
