I am in the market for some new skis next season but need to do my research. I'm 6'4" 200lbs. very very aggresive skier. I ski everything but im looking for a park specific ski in this instance. i currently ride 177 public enemies with Rossignol scratch 120 bindings. the stiffness of the public enemy allows me to ride that short of a ski but i was wondering if getting a softer flex ski would make me wash out that much more and if it would be a bad idea. any knowledge on this topic NS? thanks for the feedback
If you like your PEs and find them stable then just base off that. For a just park ski it's preferance a lot, I ski 202s most days and most likely won't be on anything in the 180s in park next year(i'll be on something stifff and in the 170s). I'm not great at park or anything though..., I just clicked the thread to tell you to get 190+ if it was for anything but pure park, longer skis are so much more fun(and stable, and charge 1000% better, and all around better, and look better).
yeah go way bigger than 177, I'm 6'4 too and I ride 181's which measure a lot longer than other 181's, and they're just perfect for park, but too short for riding in powder of charging or stuff like that.
