Im 5'8'' and im going to get the 2012 Line Blends. Im want to ride both powder and park (50-50) and am wondering if they 173's or the 178's will be a better size? i want these to last for more then one season. Any help is welcome.
I'm same size as you and I just ordered my new Liberty's tonight, and I went with 171's. I also prefer rails over jumps and spend most of my time in the park. I say go bigger unless you're a rail junky and want the mobility.
