-eREKTion-Shape wise the shorty hasn't changed since the second generation, 108mm Sir Francis Bacon aka the good one. So unless your gf is a pro or looking for a powder ski, I think 165cm 108 underfoot is too much ski for someone who's 5 ft or 152cm. Also, Line manufactures in China and has some durability issues (I've never had too many problems but others here definitely have).
JaybrtnThis would primarily be a powder ski, I figured with the amount of rocker it has, the length would be alright. Do you have any other suggestions? She’s not dead set on them by any means.
mystery3I don't mean to pry but is your gf very heavy or powerful?
I've been researching wider skis for my wife, Icelantic Maiden 101 or 111, Black Crows Atris Birdie, Liberty Genesis 106 etc., she prefers flatter tails and didn't want anything too wide so we have a pair of Black Crows Daemon Birdies coming in the mail...steepandcheap has a pretty good sale on them right now which didn't hurt.
