On3p filthy riches
I waited too long to nab the size I wanted (171) but there is 176. I am 5'8 and 155 but am used to a shorter ski. I have skied a 167 my whole life. I know there is rocker so I should go a little longer but how much.
also would alternatives be the moment vice or icelantic de nollie,
176 would be fine, if anything you might even want to go with the 181 because of all the rocker.
I think 181 would be too long even with rocker. You should be good with the 176 because of the rocker.
You need 176s anyways.
I'm 5'8, I first got the FRs in 171...way too small, washed out on everything, went up to 181s...much more stable and fun, but I didn't find them ideal. Now I'm 176s and they are perfection on skis. Very stable yet still easy to whip around.
Go 176. I'm 5'10'' 170 and ride the 181s, and they definitely feel shorter than most skis I've ridden in that size
im 5'8 and the 181 was ideal wouldnt have wanted anything shorter
skiin is life yo!
