the flyer is suprisingly light, tho the fuja would hold up better. but at your weight i dont think that u would be dissapointed in the flyer. its really based on ur skill. by the way, where are u looking?
159 is defffinately not not not big enough for you. Im 5' 3" and i ski the fujitive in 159 and it's perfect for me, right to the top of my head. They would be like you your ... nipples or something, waaay to small. Definately go with atleast something in the 170s, anything smaller will look homosexual.
dude- i'm 5'10" live in ohio and used to rock 207's back in the day before twins. i ride the 179 PE now. quit being a pussy and find the fujis in the 179. it's really not that big. you'll look rediculous on 160's-but then you do ski in shorts and a gay spyder vest so you obviously dont care about looking like a deusche bag anyway
Yeah, I have to agree, with these guys, I'm also an instructor, and it sounds like your dad doesn't have a damn clue what he's talking about, just cause he's 'an instructor' doesn't mean he's knowledgeable about choosing skis. 160 is way to short for you, and the people at your mountain/shop sound like morons also...I honestly don't think I've ever heard of anyone 5'8" riding 150s. Completely ludicrous, get something at least 170 unless you enjoy being ridiculed by 13 year old rental shop snowboard gapers for riding snowblades.
