Swiftyski572I'd go for the 170, you'll grow into them and no shame getting better on a longer ski
JuanBautistaI should clarify that I am 21 years old and I will not grow more haha. or you mean it in my ski skills??
SofaKingSicksorry, i clicked to reply but took a while to actually reply so i missed this
yeah if you're done growing def go 163. right around your height is perfect
9 cm over your head isn't necessary or beneficial for park skis unless you just love big ass skis. i only get skis way bigger than me if theyre for big mtn charging (and even then, only size up that much if you have extremely good control over your skis)
JuanBautistaIt really make sense what you said. I’ll go for 163 then, I have a really good control over my skis but I’ll be in east cost this.. not big mountains haha. Thanks for your time bro!
SofaKingSickyeah for east coast def not even a question, 163. youre welcome, have fun!
JuanBautistaThanks man! One more question. About bindings, I should mount them in the centre right??
SofaKingSickand armada's mount point is pretty "progressive" anyway, that is, they don't have a recommended mount point that is way back. it's probably a couple inches back from dead center
SofaKingSickit's probably a couple inches back from dead center MAX i should say. if i had to guess it's like an inch and a half back or something. not way back like some more "traditional" skis are
mystery3The 16/17 has two lines: progressive at -2.5 and all-mountain at -4.5 fwiw
SofaKingSickokay yeah, so 2.5in is like an inch back, and 4.5in is like 1.7 inches back. i'd suggest ""progressive"" (said in slow mo douche voice)
thank you Mystery!
