Which length for my new Fischers?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So I've decided to purchase a pair of Fischer Progressor 10+ C-Lines. And I was wondering what the general consensus is regarding the length.

My data:  Male age 46, ht 5'8", weight 162 lbs, an honest level 7 skier (pushing an 8 on a good day), in good shape. Current skis are Atomic SX-12's in 170, and Atomic SX-B5's in 167. They are simply going to be a frontside weapon, and will be used for general skiing and the occaisional monday night beer league racing, so I'm just looking for a versatile tip and rip ski. I have a pair in 170 being held, as the shop that I buy gear from thinks that it would be a good choice. But I can change them if people think that I would do better in the 165.

Chime in so I can finish paying for them and ski them!

Cast my vote for 170.

Being that your about 173cm tall, I would go 170.  The 5cm difference is two inches, so I don't see a big difference either way.

I think 170 is a good length for you.

Given your weight, height and the 16M radius@170cm, this seems like your ticket...I had an RC4 WC RC in 170, which is somewhat similar ski and I am a hair over 5'10" and weigh 175lbs. The skis were holding great.. Basically both the 170& 175 would do the job... One meter difference in turn radius wouldn't be much noticeable. If you like a little more GS speed go with 175cm, if shorter more dynamic turns are your thing, then170cm it is...

 

Cheers, Andy.

170 it is.
Thanks for the input everyone.
