Cant decide which size to get Anthems in
alright i know i've put my opinion in several times on what size ski people should get but im really in a pickle here. Im getting Anthems for next season, i've already decided that, but i dont know whether to get the 171 or 178. Last season i had Mothership's that i used both park and BC that were 172. i liked them in the park but they were a little short for BC. i've also got 1080's that are 181 that i think are too long. im 6'1 but i like shorter skis. im going to get a fat ski too this season so the Anthem will be used only in park, centermounted of course. ideally i would get like a 174, but line doesnt make that so should i go 171 or 178?
I'd go 178...since you're 6'1 they'll do great.

A centermounted 178 is going to feel like it skis shorter.
At 6'1, I would say get the 178. You will be pissed with the 171 centermounted.

178...centermounting makes the ski feel alot shorter
also, with lines sizing pattern, they are actually like a 174-176 i think
well that was easy. sounds like 178 should be fine. thanks
178. when you figure it out its really only 2 1/2" difference. thats nothing at all, and you will have less nose than you are used to since they are center mounted. 171 will feel way too short.
im only 5'8"-5'9" and i found that the 172 invaders seemed way way to short, do it would be a wise choice to go with the 178 for you
Im 5'6" and I got the 171 Anthems.
I Rather Be Skiing Right Now!
probably the 178s since youre gonna center mount them
is 178 the longest they do?im 6foot 2 and about 160 pounds do you think ill be alrigt on skis that size?
i think ur gonna think they are too short...i got 178 invaders and im only 5'7" and they were perfect center...wouldnt want them any shorter...but im ordering 178 anthems...lemme know wut u think of them tho
for many are called, but few are chosen
