Fun Carving Ski!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was trying to decide between the Armada Invictus 89 Ti and the Blizzard Brahma. I went with the Invictus 187 due both its dampness (I have a plate and some screws in my tibia that don't like excessive feedback), as well as for its level of stiffness. Sometimes I want to rip around the mountain and not have to “to be on it" to ski, especially when there hasn’t been any recent snow. The softer tips make it easy to engage these skis and lay them over. I haven't felt this sporty since my hard boot snowboarding days. In comparison to the Brahma, I also preferred the extra off piste and soft snow ability should it snow more than expected on a long stay.
