^also depending on where you ski. If you ski in powder most of the time, then definitely, but if you live on the east coast and ski your typical east coast mountain, than there is no need for a 5 foot person to have 170s.
Okay, I'm 5' 7" 115 pounds and I just bought scratch pros 148. They were the same length as my carve skis so i bought them. uhhh this is going to be my first year of park though and the only thing ive done are flat boxes and 180s. Is that cool? I mean they come up to my chin.
Dude, joke's totally on them, you should make a t-shirt that says 'all you fools suck' and on the back it can say 'I rule coz T-dawg said so' and yeah, you'll be rockin it shibby, new steeze brah, wikkid! ~PhattTim
