tomPietrowskiThey should be absolutly fine for you. What size were you on last season? I'm guessing slightly smaller prob around 171 so these may take a run or too to get used to but you will find the extra length actually helps with stability so you should be fine on them.
kryptonicWell since it was my first year on skis ever I bought some 163s just so I cloud learn on them but the 176 are as tall as me and since they will be center mounted as opposed to my old ones which were progressive mounted I felt it would make much of a difference im only 15 too so if I grow a few more inches it would still be a good size for me
tomPietrowskiThey are going to feel big at first for sure. Possibly a 171 woul have been better but it really comes down to how much you progressed. If your shredding most of the mountain fairly happily they should be fine. If your still progressing perhaps somthing smaller but to be honest they should be fine.
.Washingtonyep, as mentioned before, op you will be just fine. I wouldn't sweat it.
kryptonicOkay thanks for the insight
kryptonicSo I'm not sure about your local ski shops but somehow mine has next years armada skis and I went to look and the had the pipecleaners for about 450 dollars in size 176 only and I thought this was a pretty good deal so I put the money down but is this an okay size? I'm 5' 10' And about 150 pounds and am a decent skier in the park and can do backflips but I'm going to get better due to this past season being my first year ever on skis and I built a summer setup and I've already gotten better because of that.
