hey i'm planning on picking up the new ARV's this year but i wanted some advice from those who know on what size would be best for me. i think i'm kinda between the 175 and 185. i've ridden 180s before and 183s but were k2 which i know is a little notorious for riding a little shorter than they measure. the thing is that i've grown since then. maybe only an inch of height, but i weigh a good 190 now when back then i was more like 175. i'm stronger now because of that also, so, i'm in a little bit of a quandry. any advice is appreciated. thx.
i've ridden older ARV's. demos and stuff. of course i don't have my heart set like the decision is final. i'm going to ride the new ones before i invest in a pair. i just was thinking it was between the seth's or the arv's because of the type of skiing i want to do. i guess i should have mentioned i'm 5'10''. i was leaning toward 185, i just wasn't sure because i've never skied a ski that long before.
ya i know what you mean, i am 5'4" and 130lbs and i ride some 175 ARV's (04-05) and the first time i rode them i could tell i had a shitload of ski infront of me, but its kinda half becasue they are mounted at recomended and not centered like the rest of my skis..
