Yeah but is normal on the Distorter the 0 mark or the -5 (actually -10) mark?  Who knows.

I got my Distorters Tuesday and they are siiiiiiiiick!

 

I'm also stoked on the binding.  Girlfriend doesnt think they look good on her Helter Skelters and I'm convinced she won't find a better match anywhere.

So how are those skis working out, saven?

I can't believe there are other tall guys out there that can rip a little...  I used to when I was young, but back then every ski went up to 210cm...  Maybe us tall people should team up and start a company that makes skis for tall people.  You can be a 5' pygmy and get a ski that fits, but if you are over 6'2" you are out of luck.  Same issue with downhill bikes.  This is a really interesting topic that keeps coming up over and over again...  Maybe length isn't such a big deal anymore with shaped skis?  Guys can pull 1260's on rollerblades in the skatepark.

 

What about Rossi's sort of laid back GS ski?  The S9 or something like that I think it's called...  I knew a guy that was 5'5" that threw 720's in moguls on 210 slalom skis circa 1995...

 

Funny, I was born with a love for skiing but a body for basketball as well.

Armada ARV's in 185 might be just right for the park.  Not a "park ski" but should work just fine for that purpose.

I just couldn't resist!  Tall people unite!

I'm certainly not as big as most people posting in this thread.

 

I'm 6'1", and ski a 189 Kung Fujas.

 

Hellbents, Obsethed, and Fujas are all 189's.

 

K2's tend to be longer than their official measurement as well.
