Help Needed: Thinking of buying the Armada Victa 83

#1
Hi everyone!

A little bit about me:
I am 5ft4, 130lbs, and an intermediate skier (I ski blue and red runs without difficulty, have attempted some easier black runs but still not 100% confident). I ski mainly piste but sometimes venture a little bit off-piste. I am looking for skis that will allow me to ski confidently, with short, fast turns, in all types of terrain (powder but also icy and hard packed snow), but also ones in which I feel like I can relax with.

I am thinking of buying the Armada Victa 83, what do you think? From what I read they suit the description above, but I'd rather have an opinion from someone who has experienced the skis and can advise me!

Thanks!

Thank you!!

I usually ski in Andorra and French Alps, this year I am going twice to the Alps (January and March), which is why I was looking into getting a new pair of skis :smile:

Those would be great skis on groomers and will likely do well on ice. However, they may not be what you are actually looking for. If you want something that will handle crud and off piste, then maybe look at their Big Sister the Victa 87 ti

Sorry, I haven't actually tried them myself. :(
