170 or 180cm
Hi, I am 5'10½' and 145lbs, and was wondering which ski length would be the
the most appropriate for me. I have been riding 1080s 161cm for the past 3
years. Even though I find they ride well, I am starting to think that it is too a
small twin tip for me. I have my eyes on last years Concepts 180cm; they sell
for 200$(cnd). Is it worth it for me to get 180cm or should I wait a bit and get a size around
ps. whats the difference between the Candide Concepts and the regular
it depends on if you just ride park or what, im 6 feet, 160 lbs. and i ride on a 180, but youre 2 inches shorter than me so maybe like mid 170's would be better

How many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
10, 1 to do it, and 9 to say 'I can do that.'

ive heard that the candides (now called the Concept Pro Model) are a little bit stiffer, but i dont know from first hand expeirience, just what i have heard. and you could probobly ride a 170 but if you want a little more lenght, the 180 could work i guesse, also where you ski(park or more all mtn) and what type of conditions and that help to decide.
I used to ride mostly park/pipe/rails with my 1080s, 160cm. This year I think I am going to ride more of the mountain than I used to, but I will still be doing park/pipe. I am basically looking for an all around ski, that can allow me to stick rails and ride the pipe as well as riding and jibbing the mountain.
get the 180 fischer nt's I have for sale.
