Armada TSTw Ski -
A lot of companies tend to skimp on women specific skis, but not Armada. The Armada TSTw Skis feature all the same tech and specs as the dude's model, but come in a few shorter sizes to accommodate you petites out there. With an All Mountain tip rocker, you can charge over crud like it's not even there, and the mid-fat waist width will keep you afloat when the goings get deep. Ski just as hard, if not harder than the guys on the TSTw skis from Armada.

Features:

  • Laminate Matrix
  • 99-101mm waist range
  • Hybrid UltraLight Core (wood)
  • Entry rocker with regular camber underfoot and no tail rocker
  • AR50 Sidewall
  • Comp Series base
  • 1.7 Impact edge

Pretty darn close to balanced perfection and just for the ladies, the Armada TSTw Ski glides through deep days, drives hard through choppy day-after conditions, and lays trenches in groomers as needed. Equipped with an EST All Mtn Rocker profile, the TSTw's entry rockered tip keeps you afloat in pow and crud, while its camber underfoot and no tail rocker enables sick drive and edge hold on hardpack. With a waist dimension range of 99-101mm, depending on the ski's size, the TSTw performs equally well slashing tight trees in a foot of fresh or carving edge-to-edge on hardpack. And due to its Hybrid Ultralight wood core, the TSTw is super durable, lightweight, and nimble.

As far as avoiding the chatters at high speeds, the Laminate Matrix technology (directional layering of fiberglass) provides torsional rigidity and a smooth flex pattern you'll love. To ensure durability and years of use, Armada gave the TSTw AR50 sidewall construction to protect the ski's core against ski abuse.  Everyone knows blowing out a ski edge can be a real bummer, so to help combat this situation, the TSTw has heat-treated 1.7 Impact edges that are light and strong. Oh, and if you live to go fast, you'll definitely enjoy the Comp Series base for smooth, fast acceleration.

Positive Reviews:

This is a great ski for the entire mountain and every condition that can be thrown at you, except for the ice and really high speeds. They don't hold the best edge on ice but they are amazing on powder days and in the trees. I find they will also do pretty well in moguls. My ski shop has named this ski 'the Trampoline' which makes them great in the trees and moguls because the camber under foot is easy to load and unleash. I find myself jumping to where I want to be and never have a problem getting anywhere with these. They were my purchase after skiing all of our skis last season.

Need one ski to do it all this year? Want ski powder in the morning, bumps in the afternoon, and go for a tour at sunset? Well, this is your baby. Enough width and early rise to give you some float in pow, but the sidecut and unrockered tail allow you crush groomers and crud.
I use this ski for touring and everyday conditions because without a doubt it's the best all around women's ski on the market. If you can only buy one pair, these are your babies.

I've spent 2 seasons on both the VJJ and the TSTw.
While the TST is extremely versatile and fares better on groomers and moguls than the Armada VJJ, I just didn't like it as much as the VJJ.
The stiffer tails on the TSTw were really difficult in moguls and variable conditions, when compared to the forgiving flex of the VJJ. I ski a 175cm VJJ which is amazing, but I could barely handle the 174cm TSTw. In retrospect I should have sized down on the TSTw because it is a bit stiffer and less rockered. I did have a chance to try the 165cm size and was much more comfortable. (I am a 5'3" 120lb advanced skier).
Ultimately, I found the VJJ to be more responsive, poppy and forgiving. For me, the TSTw lacked soul. I spent more time trying to control the ski rather than just enjoying skiing - again should have sized down.
This ski is for ladies who want something stiffer than the VJJ (which is fairly floppy) who perhaps have a racing background and are searching for a quiver ski.
