Hey everyone,
I have a chance to get me a pair of this years' Bents, demos, w/bindings, for a very good price. 183" in length. However, after reading some of these reviews. . . I'm left a-wondering. . . Atomic Auto's? Armada JJ's? etc. . .
I currently ride a pair of Atomic Nomads, which are fine for the harder days, etc, but, watching my 17yr. old son absolutely shred on his pair of Bents, and listening to him talk about how they've made him a better skier, etc, I decided I prolly needed a more dedicated pow/potato ski. I am a 51yr.old father, but am still a decent charger(not as much as him!), just in a more traditional way. I also realize I might have to "learn" a new way of skiing with these, or any other fatty rockered ski, but. . . I'm ready to take that on, I spose. . . Anyway, just feeling a little nervous before pulling the $$ trigger on these, and wanting to get the right pair of skis! Thanks for your opinions!

Alright, comparing this now to the Arcteryx Atom SV hoody.
Looks like the Atom SV is slightly heavier than the micropuff, different insulation with the Coreloft vs. the Primaloft. How is Coreloft compared to Primaloft?
So, what do you all think? Looks like the Atom may be built a bit better, ie, less stiching, etc. Tell me what you think between the two jackets. Thanks!
