Need help with pow ski sizing
Hey guys, I am wondering at 6'2 and 200 lbs all geared up would a 185 arg be to small for me? I like to ski fast, huck the occasional cliff, but when it starts to get tracked out I will find my self in tight trees to get at the pow. Any other suggestions for me? I am looking at getting a reverse/reverse ski but skis like the s7 interest me too.
185 should be good. perhaps a liiiitle bit short because of the rocker, but not bad at all. im 6'2" 180 and i ride 186 bibbys. as for the s7 its worlds softer than the arg, so what do you want more? jibby playfulness, or something you can charge on?

Those are a litle short but not to bad. Were did u find ARGs?!?!?!
Definitely going to be a bit short, IMO.
i am 6'4" 195lbs naked and have ARG's. they will be so good for you you will not believe it. I ski exactly the same stuff you do. i float so easily, can make pivot turns at low speeds super easily and can really surf pow. I never had a problem with them sinking or being short on cliffs(25ft and under). they are soooo sick to ride. as for chopped, they charge through it because of the stiff flex. Even on non deep days they are fun in the moguls because of the way you have to ski them...kindof skid the back end around.
And they will be super jibby if you want because of your size and there relativly short length.
THe only place they will be too short is in BIG mountain where youre going 40+ mph through chop.
Sagging pants, wide stance, fat skis, powder in trees, corked three's with steeze.
The S7 comes in 195 next year. If I was still out West I'd be skiing them.
