Help sizing Armada Thalls Please!!!
I am looking at a pair of this years Thalls OR Ar7s. I would appreciate some help to get the right ski for me. Personally I was thinking the Thalls. For $30 more dollars I feel like it's worth it. I am debating between the 166 and 171.
LOCATION: I ski in Montana. Mainly at a small hill called Great Divide. A majority of the time I am in the park. I like to ski mountain a little too but I have JJ's for that. I ski about 60 days a year. Probably 55 out of the 60 are park.
HEIGHT//WEIGHT: I am 5'8" and I weigh 125 pounds. I am pretty much done growing.
ABILITY LEVEL: Type 3 park skier. Good all mountain skier too.
Thanks for any advice! +k for helpful and answers!
if you weigh 125lbs go with the 166 if you're a guy you probably aren't done growing, maybe height wise but you probably will get heavier, and 5 cm isn't that much so if you aren't hard on your skis you could go 171 cause that would last a little longer and if you do get heavier they'll still hold up well

At least 166. I would say 171 if you are already a confident skier. I had about 10 pounds on you my senior year of hs and my 171 lines worked great for me then.
171 thalls mounted dead center. I feel in your situation with you being so light the flex on the thall is going to be fun without having too much flex while the ar7 is going to have more stability but doing butters/presses is for sure going to be a challenge for your weight.
You sound exactly like me, except i'm 135 pounds and I currently ride 171 liberty morphics. Get 171cm, otherwise when you have another growth spurt you will look like an idiot with snowblades.

171 t halls mounted dead center. At 125 lbs your definitely going to get bigger
Thanks everyone! Very helpful. 10/10 to everyone.
