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.
178 because of rocker. The total contact length will be less. As soon as you touch powder with 173s you will regret your decision. Get 178s, they're a good length for park as well and will provide stability all over.
