    Comments about Armada Magic J Skis 2014:

    Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These skis live up to their name. In powder, they are an absolute dream. Then again, so do many other powder skis. In the last 3 years, I've had the Salomon rocker 2's and the atomic bent chetlers as well. What has always been important to me as well is how skis handle when things aren't ideal. This is my favorite by far. In chop and crud, this ski just blasts through with minimal deflection. They are the stiffest of the three and inspire confidence. Surprisingly, they handle the trees and tight spaces very well. I was very pleased that the skis can make short, quick turns with ease. Even from the first day, I felt very comfortable charging down steep, uneven terrain.
    I ride in forward direction only. I mounted the skis at factory recommended and loved it. No need to change as far as I can see.
