The Next Best Length?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


Firstly, I want to thank those involved in helping me make my decision.

I inquired about matching the Atomic Metron B5 and had received helpful advice.

After much consideration, I decided on the Nordica Fire Arrow 74. 

Now I am chasing down the best for my buck!

I have found the best price so far, but with one problem. My preferred length is not available!

I am 168cm tall. A very strong and dynamic, "go anywhere", skier. I LOVE to carve it up and have fun in the bumps as well as play in the un-groomed stuff! My choice in length was the 164cm in the fire arrow 74. The stockist I am looking to purchase from doesn't seem to have them in stock.

Q: What would be the best alternative? Choosing the 156cm or 172cm? Or stick with the 164cm but change stockists? The price difference is approx. $200!

I would say the 172, this ski is skied longer than you skied your MB5.

I've gotten so used to being taller than my skis (since the days of 202's), that having them come above my head will certainly bring back memories :)
