Which pair should i choose
On friday i have to choose which ski to harvest for my new tele ride. I have to choose between a 180 Fischer Riu and a 171 Line mike nick pro.
Love them both just cant decide. Very similar ski i find, the riu has more edge hold probably because of the Sandwich construction whereas the line is cap.
Both have only been drilled once and have been skied the same number of days, about 15 each.
I'll be running a fair amount of park but also alot of all mountain
for those who understand tele gear:
Im 6ft and am running Targas with X-races and Bumblebee T1's.
Any advice will be helpful
holy shit man. your 6 foot and considering teleing a 171. nooooooo. and the mike nick is soft too. i think the option here is clear, get the 180s. i tele 180 pistols and im 5'10 and i think they are to small.
i think youll be pleasantly suprised by choosing the fishers in all shapes and forms. as far as everything else in your line up, everything is sick, and im pumped you tele. but yea, no question at all, ditch the mikes. they might be fun sometimes, but everything else will be horrible.
and hopefully, after you pick and ride the fishers, write up a review on telemarktips.com. i and many others want to know how they ride. and i cant stress enough, pick the 180s. any other tele questions id be glad to answer.

i was contemplating the lines because one of my other teles is a SL ski and i like the turny feel of it. and at only 165 it's fine. Just to note, i have a special edition of that 171 mike nick, some of the dimensions are larger then normal, as well as a stiffer flex there is a full graphite race base on it, they are no way park noodles.
If i decide to mount the rius i'll ski them next week then write a review for you on the 10th of july hopefully
^ you going to be up at Hotham next week? I'm heading up for the week now Uni exams are over, just hope it snows a bit in the next few days!
