ManskimacMade a few too many threads about this, just don’t wanna have a bad time with the wrong ski. I’m 5’5 120 looking at either nomad 95 in 176, wet+ In 177, or regular wet 177. I occasionally like to charge, trying to progress on jumps here and there but a rail skier to the core. Love nomad 95’s currently riding a 171, 171 feels a little small that’s why I’m thinking 176, just hate the price. then thinking wets or wet+ 177 because they are (similar to nomads but just with more rocker) could be wrong on that one. Lmk what you think I should get. Thank you!
a_pla5tic_bagToo narrow? Back in the day, all park skis were narrow. Wider skis are just more to throw around and make switch ups slow. Huge skis also suck in shit snow conditions. OP I'm the same size as you and ski a 175 JJ, 171 Magnus, and 159 redster SL. With the rocker, the magnus do feel a bit small to me but it's not like I'd gain some advantage from going slightly longer. These are park skis too, they don't charge.
ManskimacNo clue what you’re trying to say, but I prefer a longer ski. Doesn’t feel like extra to throw around, feels like extra speed.
isaacwrongWides are coming in a 177 next year too..something that might be good to add to the mix
