NetherYewThat's great that the 180's work for you, but It's all preference. You need your equipment to match how you ski. If you're hard charging, get longer skis. They will be more stable at high speeds, but you loose some of the maneuverability in the park that you would have with shorter skis. You can't have it all, and what you might gain from one thing takes from another area. It's a balancing act. The blanks are park skis, and if you're using them primarily in the park I'd recommend the 170's. If you plan on hauling ass get the 180's, but you WILL feel the whole length of the ski because of its shape.
Not disagreeing with you man giving you my opinion.
But yea thats the way ski's rode for years and years...before rocker came onto the scene. Im an ex racer and love full camber. If you ski properly and charge hard the rocker should engage from tip to tail anyways if you have light rocker.
170 is an easy size to grow out of fast...especially on a ski your going to mount towards the center. Plus yea its a "park ski"...but geared much more towards all mtn riding than many many other twin tips out there becuase of how stiff they are
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
