e.moneyThey seem like a great intro park ski, looked at them myself a few years back. ARV 86's will last you longer for sure and will be a better ski, but if you can get an awesome deal, I would maybe go with the K2's. What Marker bindings do they come with? If they come with Marker Squire bindings, I would find different bindings. Each of my friends who had the squires broke them within in a season. As for ski size, I'm 5'10" 150 and I ride a 177cm ski. For me, its the perfect length for park. Although, I could definitely ride longer skis if I was going to be skiing more all-mountain. Hope this helps!
Thanks for the answer.
Yeah don't worry, I've been told to stay away from the squires hehe. It's with the Griffons, which i think will be just fine for me.
I'm really split between the two atm. Definitely a little worried about the K2s being a bit to short for me and i've had my eyes on the ARVs for some time. That being said, i can get the K2s for like 60% the price of the ARVs
