I had inquired earlier on this site about what type of ski to choose, however, I could not find any deals on the ski I had decided and think I found better options recently. Also just got a job where I get a huge (40-50%) discount on Armada, Faction & Head Ski gear.
My skill level is 7/10 like to take tree runs off blues and rip down non-mogul blacks as well as some back country/bowls. I like everything basically, except moguls, take too much out of me.
Body: 5'8 - 160lbs
So my question: I had been set on the new 180cm Rossignol Soul 7 because of the amazing reviews that fit both my size and ski type perfectly (minus the fact that I don't go backcountry, yet). However, as of now they're all so expensive/sold out so I would be waiting for demo skis to come on sale late this month at hopefully around a 40% discount (however probably heavily used bc of their popularity)
I could choose from the brands listed above brand new with the discount...having done a little research, the only ski that seems for me is the 174cm ARMADA TST..which I could get brand new for 40% off.
So which would you choose? Basically, is the Rossi Soul 7 that much better than the TST that I should wait and buy used? It seems that it might be based on some amazing reviews.... I will be able to demo one of these skis in the next couple weeks and would love some suggestions from yall.
Any help would be appreciated!!!!
