So I am a pretty light dude, 160 and 5'9.5" or so. I am currently skiing 177 Mantras and granted yeah it is a hella stiff dual alloy ski.. I don't think my ability is up to charging all crazy style with it. When I do bumps I feel it takes too much to initiate turns and doesn't turn well in the steeps for me.
SO I know some of you will be able to help! I am looking at 169 Obsethed skis now. A bit softer, and full rocker as to my Mantras full camber. For my height and weight is that silly? I am using it as an all mountain ski here in the west...CO/NM/UT so conditions are super hit and miss. I do not go insanely fast, but I don't want to go too short to be unstable... anyone have experience? Thanks for helping ^_^
