This is my first post so thanks the help and sorry if I forgot any important info.
Me: 6'0", 205 lbs, 33 years old, solid level 8
I am getting some new skis this year after spending the last few seasons on the Volkl AC40 (177). I have decided that I am going with the Volkl Kendo. I was just at the local ski shop checking out Kendo in a 177 when a guy in the shop suggested to me that I should think about the 184's. He said the Kendo skied "shorter" than their actual size. Does anyone know if this is accurate? I do most of my skiing in the East/Midwest (500'-1000' vertical hills) and make 1 trip out west every year. I like to ski everything the mountain has to offer. The only thing I don't ski on a regular basis is +12" powder (you just don't find it where I ski) My AC40's were 177cm and felt great. Any input would be appreciated.
