I got a new pair of AR7s at the begining of the season and have been using it pretty much everyday at work here at buttermilk. they are a awsome all mnt jib ski. The only conditions I dont take it out are super icy(cause of slightly detuned edges) and and fresh pow more than 2inches. every thing else I ride my AR7( mainly cause Im a poor lifty who has one good pair of skis).
The other ski I was considering was the new Rossi scratch and I went with the AR7 cause it wider and more versitle.
Im 5'9'' 170lbs and went with 176 and really glad I did. If I was a way better park rider I would of thought more on the 171 so I could spin faster. sounds like you might want the 176. It will probly give you more stability.
hope this helps
