Swandog7Just a little too big, thanks for the offer though man. IM riding 168 park skis right now, 189s are just too much weight and a bit of length for me
Fair enough if you change your mind hit me up. Just saying after riding these beasts all season they area an absolute kick ass ski. Such a fun all mtn ski. I didn't use them for park though only all mtn / some big mountain type stuff. Killer pow ski for sure.
I couldn't see myself enjoying these as a pow ski the underfoot effective edge is just so small on the 179. 189's ride insanely short especially on hardpack type terrain. The tip/tail engage much mroe in pow/deep snow.
Unless your a midget or suck at actual skiing I would go 189's. I'm 5'8'' and rock 189's no problem
