I'm getting the Atomic Punx soon and I've had a hard time deciding between the 173's and the 182's. I ski only on the east coast, and I'm 5'8" 140lbs. People have said that since the Atomic Punx is so light you should go longer but I don't know if the 182 will be too long. I want it to bee good for groomers and the park, but I also want to be able to go in the trees with it too. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
Im about 5"9.5 maybe 5"10 and i have the 182s are CRAZY light. Lightest ski I've held. Theyre gonna go about an inch over your head. Depends do you do more rails or more jumps? 182 is gonna give you a ton of stability on jumps but its a bit long for rails for you. However 173 will not be as stable
