PE vs. 02 Salomon 1080's
I have bought a pair of 161 solomon 1080 skis..they come with the S810 binding and have never been ridin. I am Considering working out a deal with the ski shop to trade these ski plus some old verse 7's for a new pair of Public Enemy 179's ....I'm 5'11' and I wiegh 145lbs ..should I stick with the 161. 1080's or sould i have these skis exchanged for a 169 or 179 PE? please include the size that you feel is best suited to my specs
get the Mad Trix skis...They're mint!
why do u think you should trade the 1080?
179 man, you wont regret it.. i got 175s and i amn 5'7.. and i LOVE EM
ya but the public enemies will also be alot bigger than 179 considering that they are measured from the base
I want to sell the 161's cause I feel they are too short...I'm pretty pissed off about wasting all that money on something i can't use...do you think that it is possible that I could still get away with skiing the 161's for a bit of park as well as all mountain stuff?
it depends on the size you like to ride with
Not even a question. i'm 5'10 ski on 5 year old 177 1080's and Volkl G41's 188 as my pow ski. 161 is like a snowblade for your size and in all mountain it will squirell and speed will be no good.
