all K2 skis are a little longer than what they say, some companies measure differently, if it is straight from tip to tail without touching the ski, or if they wrap the topsheet or if they measure the tip to tail on the base, which would give the longest measurement.
if a K2 says it's length is a 179 it will actually come out to be more of a 183, and this is if you compare it to another ski company
for example, last year the Hell Bent 179 and the EP Pro 185 where almost excatly the same length put next to eachother.
and I don't think you can find an 07/08 Hell Bent but I have some and ifyou PM me I'll make you a deal
