Armada TST sizing
Im 5'7 and i was wondering if i should get the Armada TST in a 174 or 183
depends on what you want to ski... if you like tight skis, then 174, however, that ski feels way short, Im 5'6 145 and i rock the 183, and 185 JJ, they are big, but its nice to get that flotation...
that being said, i have a 175 pair of a similar waist ski for trees and tight places
You're 5"7 now. Are you growing? If you're young, I'd go 183 for sure. They ski really short due to the tip rocker. I've never regretted going up a size when in doubt.
Go long. Due to the fairly agressive rocker and the silly (IMO) turn radius it rides a little snow blade like so you want the loner running distance, effective edge and larger turn radius.
Def go longer. I'm 6'1 and ride the 183s and I kinda wish I'd sized up to the 192. Tip rocker is huge so your effective edge isn't nearly as long as you probably think it is.
threads. also if anyone's looking to sell some 183s i have a friend in need of some haha
