Choice between on3ps for one ski quiver
Hey yall, so looking for some feedback on what people think would be better for 60/40 park to all mtn.
I have the choice between the filthy riches in 176 my preferred ski length, but they are skinnier underfoot at 88 or the kartels in 171 which are 98 undefoot. My question is I prefer riding a 176 ski and don't like the idea of going smaller, but 88mm is skinnier than I would like for a 1 ski quiver. I do like the width of the 98 on the kartel but it being a 171 am I going to sacrifice stability at speed or will it be negligible if at all? Do you know if the rocker profile on them is going to make them ski smaller than 171 or 176 in each owns respects? I am an aggressive charging skier and a moderate park rat, I can rip all mtn or symmetricals in and out of the park no problem so it just makes the choice harder! Thanks guys stoked to be trying out on3p.
Living the dream one carve at a time.

Because of the rocker, the Kartel will ski pretty significantly shorter than 171. If you're already questioning the length, definitely don't get a 171. Honestly it sounds like both of those skis don't fit what you want even though they're both awesome skis. They're just not the best option for your needs
