Alright. so i tried these out yesterday. fucking AWESOME ski. its insanely light for how big it is.. I was railing them a few times. super fun. I tried the 175 and the 185. The 185 was a little large for me (im like 140 lbs) but they would be great if you were about 20 lbs heavier. the 175 was the money though, and I was killin it on them. wicked fun.
