Should I get Bent Chetler 120?
I found a good deal on 176 Atomic Bent Chetler 120 (18/19). I'm 5’7 and 145 lbs and usually ski 181 Nomad 105s (with regular bindings) all around the mountain.
I do like the Nomads but they do feel pretty heavy sometimes and I would like to get something a little wider for powder and some touring. Atomics would be wider and alot lighter. I have park skiing background so I think Atomics would be fun but I would also like them to handle some speed. I'm worried they are too short since I'm used to 181s and they would be mostly for powder.
I'm mostly using lifts and will do only pretty short tours so downhill performance is more important to me than uphill. I'm only going to get one pair of touring bindings right now so I'm wondering if I should get the Atomics for that or switch bindings on my Nomads.

Too short. You need a set of Nordica Patrone’s. I’ll sell them to you cheap. Barely skied them and I use my blizzard spurs for pow now.
that length should be good for the 120s for you. i think the next size may be a little much to control in anything other than pure powder. while the 184s measure 182, it can be a lot of ski. You are fairly light and i dont think you'd notice the 176 feeling too short.
I just hope that they won't be completely useless for anything other than powder jibbing but I guess they will be fine. I would still have the Nomads for different conditions.
