i just got some brand new t-halls from my sponsor(a store here in my country)and they gave the 180 thalls, last year i had the 169 volkl karmas and i really think that they were to small for me, but i don't know if 180 cm is too much, i ride mostly park like 95% i'm 5'7'' and weight 145, i wanted to know if you think i should give back the 180 and ask for the 176 or keep the 180 because that isn't much of a difference.thanks.
short skis suck, long skis truck
man, long skis are shit, the 180's should be fine

2 cm both ways is nothing just keep the 180's you'll get used to it
keep them. long skis make everything easier plus they look better too. it just takes a few runs to get used to them.
a 176 would be better for you right now. depends how much you will grow over the summer.
You know you're skiing in the midwest when you can smell the fries from the top.
uhh personally i like smaller... so id go with 166 or 171... but the 181s probly look better
...if this kid is sponsored, I'm pretty sure he won't need 166 cm skis.
Definitely go with the longer skis. I kick myself in the ass everyday for getting the 174 scratch FS. I definitely could've used the 181.

There are some things money can't buy, but for everything else (like like a megaphone to scream "fuck you" at the captain of the #9 basketball team in the country after he piss's off the roomate of the chick who's taking you home) there's debit mastercard... accepted at colleges around the country.
its all personal preference... or what u like 2 ski
i'm gonna keep the 180 thalls and i was wondering if i mount them 2 cm back from center would that mess up with the flex points because the reccomended mounting point is like 6,5 cm back from center, but i don't want them there.if anyone knows that would be great.
i think you would enjoy the 176's more then a 180 for a strickly park ski. i'm about your size, but only 130 and the 180 felt pretty bulky in the park.
maybe i can still get the 176 but i'm worried about the flex points if i mount them 2 cm back from center would that mess up the flex points
nope, they should be fine. i mounted mine a fingers width behind center and didn't have a problem.
thanks man i think i'll go with that.
