thanks a lot for the feedback!!
really appreciate it
i was going to buy a pair of step-ups (great bargain) but they had been out of stock before i could visit tha bank
a friend of mine who (about same size/weight) is given new skis for free every year has several pairs of freestyle skis and offered me pairs of masterminds, afterbangs and chronics all new with jesters
they are barely used just like new but they are not a bargain at all
that is why i need to be sure
i guess i will go with the masterminds..they seem ideal for me although i will have to dig into my pocket
last question and problem solved
for my size 5.7 145 what size of masterminds would you get?
i guess the 177..they seem to have enormous tail but i guess i will like it
or should i go shorter?
