Another length size question, sorry!
I know this question must be way over asked so sorry about adding to the masses!
I'm 6'2, 185ish. This will be my third year skiing so I am still a beginner but I'm at the point of riding switch a lot and doing 180's comfortable but having trouble spinning 360's. ( I'm not a very talented athlete)
Would the 181 98 kartels be okay for me? I'd really like to shrink my ski size down a bit to make it easier to learn to spin.
What about even the 176's (if that's the other size I can't remember)
Meh, I wouldn't go any shorter than 181s, but less swing weight might help. I struggled with 360s for quite a while when I was learning. Just remember to pop and look over your shoulder, and the thing that made all the difference for me was keeping my weight forward too. If all else fails try a handrag 360, I found them quite a bit easier.

Dude I'm like 5'8 maybe and riding 176. You should be on 181s at least
