Armada El Rey All Mountain Ski?

Armada El Rey All Mountain Ski?
Looking at the Armada El Rey Skis 2013 + Bindings. I have a few questions.
1. Would this ski be suitable for mainly on piste use with occasional off piste and park?
 
2. Being 6'2 and 210 pounds, intermediate is the 178cm length long enough?
 
3. Is this a more forgiving ski? I am just getting comfortable with parallel turns, and learning fast. Will this ski help me progress or would I need a softer ski?
 
4. How do these compare with something like the Line Chronics, Atomic Panic/ Theory and Salomon Rocker 2 90?

1) Yes

2) With your height, I would normally suggest the next size up, but based on your progress so far, the 178 should work well for you.

3) it is a little stiffer, but with your weight I think it is appropriate for you.  Did you look at the Aramda site to look at the stiffness of the skis in their line up?  Go here: http://armadaskis.com/product/skis

4) No idea as I haven't researched them, but you should.

Have fun.
