WoFlowz166 is pretty short if you’re 5’11 I’d recommend finding something longer. Also what bindings do you have at the moment?
rojo.grandeHomie if you’re 5 foot 11 you most likely weigh more than those bindings can really handle. Look into new bindings with a din higher than a max of 7 (something that goes to like 13/14) and look at skis in the 178-183 range
SkierMullzI’ve been skiing for a long time I just always got the hand me downs for my brothers so I never really looked deeper into specs until now. This last season I was probably 5 ft 10 at 155 lbs and skied on these, the skis are 148cm which I know now is really short for me and the bindings seemed fine at only 5.5 DIN, I hit jumps and some rails and they stayed on good but came of if I got twisted up. I will keep your suggestion numbers in mind thanks!
sullivanobrien_you want around a 180 cm ski don’t just think about the suggestion... you need it. and you need new bindings too. the tyrolia attack 13 is only around 100-150 and is perfectly fine. if you get a 166 you are gonna regret it once you learn more about skis. also you will more than likely break those bindings. i don’t know if you have any around but go to ski shops and make connections you can get a good deal on skis and bindings very easily in my experience with the right shop. if you’re on a budget then continue looking on ebay and such but come back here with the skis you find so we can help
fuck dude i missed my 420 post
