I need help with ski sizing.
I am 5'4" (Still growing) and for the last two years or so i have been on 151 line invaders and i am ready to get new skis. i am trying to decide on whether i should jump 10cm up to a 161 or 20cm up to a 171 ON3P jmo.
My concern with the 161 is that it is not going to be the right size for very long and that i am going to continue to have trouble with landing consistancy.
But my concern with the 171 is that it will be too long and that even with the rockered tip i will still have trouble in the air with spins control ect.
any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.
how old are you, i would go with like a 160-165 depending on how tall you are supposed to be. im 5'7" and ski on 169 kung fujsas, but i also have a pair of 159 fujatives that i ride sometimes, both work pretty solid, but i wouldnt ski on the fujatives out of the park.
......... and remember to afterbang.... even if you fall!

Since you're still growing, I'd say go with the 171 if you're fairly confident in your regular skiing ability. They might be a bit long now, but once you grow a little, you'll really appreciate the extra length.
