I just got a really good deal on a pair of armada el rays, they were brand new but the 2010 model so the shop had them for only 239.
i decided to get them because the 2011 were the ones i was thinking about getting and the price was great. I was kinda hoping to get around 170 but these were only a 164. Now im 5'8 about 160lbs and ive had a pair of ski blades for about 9 years now that i have used. I ski on mostly packed groomed conditions and have never not went down a diamond they dont scare me lol. Now i figured since ive had snow blades for so long that the 164's should be ok or if i made a bad decision i would like to get some input from other people thanks
