Following on from my post a few days ago I've done some research and decided I am gonna replace my K2 Obsethed with some Line Prophets. I am just a bit torn on sizing, my previous K2 Obsethed were 179 and felt great in tighter trees, bumps but were still great in the deeper stuff.
My weight is about 160-170 pounds and height is a hair under 6 ft, they will be my only ski....pow, groomed, bumps, trees, etc, so I'm kinda wondering whether to go 179 in the Prophets or 186 as most folks seem to think they ski short. The chart on Lines website says I'm pretty much in the middle (strongish skier but certainly no expert).
I've tried searching but can't find out how the 179 Prophet skis compared to the Obsethed in 179 (2009 model) but can't really find anything. Anyone know how they compare in 179, does the Prophet ski similar or shorter?
Also anyone skiing them in either size, what are your thoughts?
