i have sir francis bacons
lets just say last year i got a pair of park skis and a pair of pow skis(sfb's), the only time i road my park skis was when my bindings on my sfb's broke and i had to warrantee them and it took two weeks. They do not feel big and bulky AT ALL. I love them sooo much, so much fun everywhere, I got them mounted at -3 from center and they can be a little prone to tip diving in like 3 feet of fresh, but i think that or -4 is an ideal mount, and recommended is -6 i believe. I am was like 6'0" and now im 6'3" 165ish and have 182's since it was the only size made, op definitely get 182's, they could not be any shorter than this, they already feel fairly short. and to the kid that is 6'2" and they are up to your nose, theyre up to my forehead and im taller than you....
but OP and anyone
if you want something that does absolutely everything, especially if your looking for a non rockered ski for some reason,even tho without rocker they still slay powder.
the only thing i would change would be some small tip and tail rocker, or "early rise" and to have them be like 186cm.
thats all i gotta say.
thank you for your time.
Rest in peace Shane.
