Filthy Rich Size Question
What's up NS? I'm pretty sold on the FR's, but I'm torn between getting the 181 or 186. I'm 6'3, 170. I live on the shitty east coast and ski 99% park. In the park, I ski 95% rails, mainly since my mountain doesn't have any jumps. Anyway, thanks for the help guys, +k for good answers!
If you are hitting rails 95% of the time, I think you would be fine on the 181cm. You are not very heavy and I don't see anything gained by going with the 186cm if you are spending your time skiing rails vs the 181cm.
If you are were hitting a lot of jumps, the 186cm would give you more support but, again, you are not particuarly heavy for your height so in the end the difference would likely be smaller than you think.
Sounds like that is not a concern, though, so I would think the 181cm would be fine.
Do note that the way we measure our skis results in them being longer than skis of the same length from other companies. So our 181cm is more like a 184cm and our 186cm is more like a 189cm, so it is a pretty long ski @ 186cm if you are hitting rails all day, IMHO.
Hope that helps. If you need more info give the factory a call!
