1. How is the base? I believe it's sintered right? All i want is a faster base than i have now (OG disorderlys beat to shit). Yes i'd maintain it.
2. 169 length, if anyone has them, how long are they actually? I'd like a ski around 171 or so but 169 to 171 isn't too different but I think the next size is too big for me (177). maybe not though, i'll have to go to a store and stand on some 177's.
And I've heard of durability with the walls so i'm not worried about that, right?
