Im 5'11 and 200lbs. Looking into buying a new pair of armada al dentes but unsure as to what length to buy? I have seen threads that said they ,ay ski a bit shorter. Also are there any other skis out there that would possibly be a good fit for me? Looking for something good in the park as well as able to handle the whole mountain?
Get the 178's that would be a good size for you. they say the shorter the ski the easier is is to get um sideways; although, on the other hand the longer the ski is the more stable it will be and that will come in handy with the rockered tip the those skis have. im 5'7 and i ski on 182's hope this helps.
I'm your height and a bit lighter and the 188 felt great to me. I was sceptical of the size but the large amount of rocker in the nose makes them ski a bit shorter. But at speed and in powder you will enjoy the extra size. Only get the 178 if you only plan to use them in the park an if that's the case I would get a more park dedicated ski. So if it's an all round ski your after get the 188.
