What size Patrons? Quick answers appreciated.
Im 6'1'' 175 pounds and want skis that will kill it in trees as well as everywhere else. Im pretty agressive skier and i need it pretty stable. I'm not growing anymore so should i go with the 193 or the 185?
You Stay Classy Newschoolers
go 193 and mount them 4cm forward of traditional (2cm back from center) ive got 177's mounted that way and they are perfect for everything.
I agree with the above mounting suggestion, but maybe on the 185 as it is a suuuuper stiff ski and you want to shred in trees especially. That ski in a 193 is a lot to handle.
youve been skiing hellbents to much if you think patrons are stiff. haha. i wouldnt call them stiff, but i wouldnt call them soft. they have a really nice flex pattern to them. if you are going to jump down to a 185 go to the raddict. that thing is rediculous. its soooo much fun in softer snow and still does pretty well on harpack
i skied 185 raddicts when i was in CO for a pow day. they were fun, and i'm only 5'5" and like 120lbs. I didn't find it hard to move them at all. they didn't have too small of a turning radius in comparison to the JJ's which I had used for the two previous days, and i think the JJ's were a little easier to carve with. But i did enjoy the nordicas.
