</font>[/quote]Head recommend the 170 to 180 cm for people that weight between 148 and 174 lbs and are between 5'6" and 5'10". It seem that a 177 or 184 cm would be more appropriate if you are really aggressive. If you are less aggressive or want better short turns then the 170 could work.

Frenchie - How big is Peter Keelty? He loved the 170, didn't he?

Also, was the price in CDN or US $$$?

I don't remeber his weight exactly but I think he is a faily tall guy. Head was really pushing the IM 75 in a 170cm length for a wide range of skiers.

The price is in U.S. Since I buy and live in the U.S. now. In rome, one as to do like the romans.

Crazyfreeflyer, Malcom might be looking for a 177 cm so maybe he can buy your skis and you can buy mine.

Laseranimal, this fridge hold ice really well and I could ask PM to recalibrate the thermostat. Hell of a skier, y the look of the rest of the kitchen you can guess that my wife is doing a great job at keeping this well staple [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Frenchie -

Thanks for the info. I knew it had to be US$, but just in case, I figured there would be no harm in asking. [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

> ...and I could ask PM to recalibrate the thermostat...

Knock a couple of hundred bucks off the price, and I will personally come out and give your fridge a calibration traceable to our National Bureau of Standards (aka NIST). Of course, as part of this procedure, it will be necessary for me to first sample the alcohol content of any cans and bottles in said fridge.

Is it $700 CDN i guess?
I'd really like to get them i think..
But, i've got now i.M75-177cm last year's model, i want 170cm instead...
Do you know anyone who needs 177cm-i.M75 (w/ Railflex LD12), LIKE-NEW conditon, were only used less than a dozen times, pictures available...
If i only could sell mine skis, i'd buy those immediately..

Peter Keelty is 6'2" 190#.
post #22 of 25
Thanks. I was pretty sure he is a decent sized guy. So, it looks like the 170 wouldn't be an unreasonable choice for Malcolm.

I don't think the 170 would be out of line for a 185 lb. guy. I know before I bought mine, Peter strongly suggested that I try the 170, even at 205+ lbs. Peter told me that the ski was extremely stable in the 170, and only a very heavy or super aggressive skier should think about the 177. I ended up buying the 177, but it does ski long, and is definitely a lot of ski. To be truthful, I think I could have gone either way, but for someone thats 185 lbs., the 170 would be a safe bet.

Frenchie, next time you have some skis to sell, would you mind taking a photo of them in the bathroom?

I'm looking for some new shower curtains, and wanted to see if I liked yours. Thanks! [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Carvemeister,
My wife read your post and now she said she needs to redecorate the bathroom. It's all your fault! [img]smile.gif[/img]
