Right, So im think of getting some salomon foils, I'm 5ft 5 and weigh around 110 lb's , What size would be best, and should i center mount? I ski about 40% park 40% pow and 20 groomers.
im not exactly sure what salomon has for sizes this year but for your hight and weight you should go for something in the 165ish range... and mount them 3 or 4 cm up from midsole... that way you still get the park performance you want without killing your pow performance...
Thats good, my shops got them in 166 which sounds good,
and any opinons on the foils, good or bad? any problems?
They ski a bit short due to their suggested mount, but 166 should be fine for you.
Get the mount of the bindings 2cm/mm I can't remember what they measure in and get 160's to 170's

I'd go around 171s, because to me 168s feel a bit small and 176s feel a bit too big. Oh and I'm 5'5
Rarely is the question asked: is our children learning?
in the mid 160s

Yeah.. Mid 160's to low 170's (166's or 171's)
Personally for allaround I'd say get the bindings mounted 2 to 5 cm behind centre. (5cm if you ski on Ice a lot, 2cm if you're in pow more often)

i have 166 and they are great im about 5 6 and i love them. They have a foam core so they loose their pop after a few seasons but by then u will outgrow them.
i just skied foils last night, they have a really good flix range and there pretty light (but thats compared to 170 ar5s) they are a real solid ski too
yea get the 166s
they are a really fun ski
