        Overall

        These Skis rip!!
        i have had them for the last 2 seasons and haved used them as my everyday ski for both of those seasons.
        I have never once complained about them, never had any problems.

        Performance

        With specs 130 (tip)-95 (underfoot)- 119 (tail). its fat enough for those 3-5 inch powder days (Pacific Northwest, wet powder days) but still isn't too fat to where they struggle on groomers.
        Connecting turns, and shifting all 200lbs of me, isnt an issue for these guys.
        21.7 meter turning radius,

        Design

        The design is classic camber with classic side-cut. so you really can not go wrong.
        Also, with a sidewall construction and a wood core, its very stable at speed, but still is on the softer side (typical of armada skis)

        Value

        I paid, around $450 mounted with PX12's, from my secret store (HA like im gonna tell you where i got a deal like this!!)
        So i would consider a fair deal for an all mountain. 95 waist ski.
        And considering my budget was $200 bucks, i didn't have alot of choices, so if you want a good ski, in general, no matter what you are going to use it for, i would recomend spending a little more than your budget allows, it will get a much longer lasting ski, no matter the company (unless its a really crappy company, but thats were your common sense kicks in!!!) and its been one of the great decisions for my skiing.

        Fit

        185 is the only thing that will fit my fat ass, dont need a brain surgon to tell you that a 6'2" 220lbs dude, needs a 180 and up.
        Anything shorter and i would have broken them with the horse play i put them through. Any longer and they would be as fun in the thicker and heavy stuff we get up here.

        Characteristics

        Really soft for an all mountain ski, but are just stiff enough to keep you on edge for some great carving.
        But the softness is to be expected with an ARMADA ski. but i do wish i had bought something stiffer (no homo) but seeing as these were my pair of twin tip skis, i think i made a great first pick.

        Durability

        For the two years i had them, they held up pretty well.
        Only had one core shot, but it was becuase of early season conditions and im really fat.
        But because i babied the crap of them, for the first year (worst damage i got was a chip in the top-sheet) im dont have a fair response to this question

        Overall

        These skis are awesome! They make a great one ski quiver. Only slight problem is the chipping topsheets but this happens to all skis and is only cosmetic. Otherwise, they're flawless.

        Performance

        these skis work great in everything from powder to hardpack.  Work great on rails and jumps also. 

        Design

        I love the graphics. They're a very fun ski.

        Value

        I got last years model off ebay for 300 and i'd say its definitely worth the money. Great price for a great ski.

        Fit

        I am 5'9" and 155 pounds and the 175's are great.

        Characteristics

        The flex is, in my opinion, perfect.  The tips are flexy enough to butter and mess around on, but stiff enough to still hold a decent edge on groomers and hardpack.  the tips don't chatter at all at high speeds.  The semi-soft tips also help in powder.

        Durability

        The edges and bases are holding up well.  The topsheets do chip relatively easily, but this is only cosmetic

        Overall

        good ski for skiing tree pow, although not stiff enough for a big mountain assault and possibly a little to big for a park ski, in my opinion it performs better in the park

        Performance

        skis all mountain really well, although there i found them to chatter at high speed, performed really well in the park is you like a fairly soft ski. For they werent stiff enough for charging lines in the bc, they perform well in a mellow tree session

        Fit

        ive got the 185, although it comes in 165 and 175 130-95-119

        Characteristics

        fairly stiff underfoot and very soft at the tips and tails

        Overall

        Fun, Expensive, Playful, Soft, Responsive, Decently Wide, All moutnain skis.


        Performance

        They work great

        Super fun in powder
        Nice and light in park
        really responsive if youre skiing bumps and trees
        Very snappy...

        Sometimes they wash out on backseat or forwards landings...

        Design

        The coy fish look rad

        Value

        Expensive!
        but still pretty worth it

        Fit

        175's were perfect

        Characteristics

        They're really soft. Very much so in the tips. A little stiffer in the tails. Lots of fun in deeper snow, the tips make it really easy to float, also the flex makes it super forgiving and pretty easy to control.

        Also, I don't get any chatter going fast, which is good especially for how soft they are

        Durability

        after 20 days there is one chip in the top sheet
        Ive banged them off a couple rocks and trees, still holding up great.
