161 or 166???
I'm 5'2 and still growing (im 13)
I can basically ski anything, i love pow but also love park... I'm thinking about either the line anthems or blends (both 09 models) for next season but am not sure if the 161 length of the anthems will be to small... Does anyone know what size the Blend will come in??? will the be to fat and heavy for the park? What about the ar6 and the THall?
blends all the way man

if ur 5'2 go with the 160's
Actually i'm starting to think the ARV might be right for me... 165 seems perfect...

165 ARV would be legit. mount likr 1 or 2 back from center. thats primo

or you can man up and get some 171 reno jibs... they are just like anthems, except a little thinner and way better....
plus since your only 13 you have a very good chance of going through a big growth spurt which then you would not want 165s, trust me i was like 5ft 2in at the beginning of last season, and i had 161 invaders, but then i grew 5 inches and they were way too small by the end of the season.

i just had a growth spurt, i think i'll be around 5'4 or 5'5 at most by next season...
Thanks... good advice!
i think i like the arvs though
++++karma to u
there's like no difference in size
i used to have some arvs when i was around ur height and they were real nice. i think i had 165s also. go for em
5cm isn't gonna make that much of a difference. 2 inches, dude
K, Thanks guys, the arvs look great!
blends come in a 168 next year, which would be too big. i would go with 166 because u will grow into them

go for the bigger size bro, i just turned 15, i have yet to hit my growth spirt im 5'2 and i just got 173 punx to use as my only ski for next season

Always go for the bigger size that way until you get growed you'll get stonger and more better with the long heavy ski and then when you get growed you'll just be like "ARRGHH this is super easy!" And I'm sure AR6's are great but i can't help but recomend the anthems cuz theyre super light and naughty!
if your ever debating between two ski lengths. go with the one you think will be too long instead of the one you think would be too short. trust me man. they wont be nearly as long as you think. you will love them after the first day.

too long is MUCH better than too short, if you get a ski thats too long you look fine but if you get them short you look like your on snowblades
