I am currently looking into buying the Volkl kink ski, I live and ski in Australia I am 154lbs and 6'1". I enjoy skiing both on the piste and in the park I am an intermediate to advanced skier on the piste but a begginer to intermediate in the park. I have demoed a number of skis including the Salamon Threat, The volkl wall and the armada el ray. I liked the flex of the Wall but would like a directional ski. Any tips on what lengths you think would suite me and what mounting points were successful for you. Also if you think I am looking in the wrong direction concerning skis any advice down that alley would be useful.
Awesome ski, I had them last year. they didn't change them at all for this season. I would get them, over any of the other skis you mentioned. Mount them at +6 (most forward line) and get the 179 for sure
I was also wondering how long the 179 is as on some brands they run their skis long or short what is the case with volkl.
It's not that bad, I wouldn't go any shorter if you plan to center mount
