Replying to 180 or 189 Keys?
So after snapping my b-dogs I need a new park ski, i've been eyeing the vishnu keys as they seem like a more middle of the ground ski rocker-wise but still with the vishnu amount of flex and I'll be honest the SLC at night topsheet is also a factor in the allure of the ski. The b-dogs i was using were the old version (2015 i think) and 177cm, I am 5'10 and around 160 pounds for reference and will be using them for basically just park as if I am skiing all mountain ill use my Devastators. Skill wise I am a solid intermediate park skier (4's off, swaps, 3s with grabs on larger jumps) and progressing at a solid rate.
I understand that they are a new ski and anyone who isn't on the vishnu team wont know how they ski but I am conflicted on which height to get, the 180 would be alot closer to my previous skis but the 189 would allow for even more stability but added weight. On any of the other vishnus I would forsure go with 189 because of how much rocker they have but since the key has a fair amount less i am unsure.
Any advice or insight would be appreciated
