^ yes. 179 is perfect. you guys would regret getting 169's soooo much. i got 179 pistols for the park, and they are almost too short. im 6'2 but only 145 lbs by the way. so you guys are bigger than me.
i used to see rory silva always riding the old pistols in the older freeze magazines. i love it to tell you the truth. rails are sick with them. most of all i like landing switch on a fat ski. its super stable.
