how do you ski? if its straightlining bowls at speed, no go for it. otherwise, thats a lot of ski to move in tight trees. its true that rocker makes them feel shorter, but it won't make up for a major size gap. I'm 6 foot and riding 186 bibby's and they feel great. on the other hand, I can't see why companies are making some monstrously wide sticks in short sizes. The 168 CRJ's must look like 2 mini snowboards. at a certain point, if you want a ski of those dimensions, step up to the plate for length as well
