Yeah, cause there's only like 330 threads on this. BUT!! They're all about 179 vs. 189...and my question is totally different. Should I get the 169's or the 179's? Aahaha. I'm about 5'7' and 135 pounds. I want to ski powder on these skis both outwest down mad steep shit and here on the east coast in the trees. I'm pretty sure that I want the 169's (174's), but has anyone had expierence with that particular size?? I know some ski manufactuers change the flex on smaller sized skis, I just don't want to get tossed off these sticks. Thanks NS!!
everyone on this site seems to think they're the shit for riding the longest skis possible. honestly, the 169 will still float in pow no question, will be more fun in trees and in the park, and are still plenty long for someone so short. Unless you wanna go really big and ski crazy lines I think a 169 would be more fun.

well I think 179 (184) would be heavy as fuck when you'll want to have fun in the park
135 pounds mean skinny.
I think the 169 could be real fun to mess around and it's not like they are gonna sink in powder.
It was a tough decision but I think I'm going to go with the 169. The skis are mad fat and I'm going to be hopping/jumping around a good deal, and though I like big lines too, I'll be in the air way more.
