Ordered used atomic blackeye 164cm, got 157cm - big deal?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I decided to save money and ordered atomic blackeye used skis 164cm with bindings
At a very good price 289$ on EBay from a very reputable place (according to reviews) the gear movement. And today I got the skis, they look good BUT it is 157cm size

So obviously I am very dissapointed as the plan was to go skiing next week. It is a pain to return,
Plus I am not 100% sure they have what I need.

I am 5'10, 178 pounds, upper intermediate but want to improve and would
Mostly use them around NY area (so hard snow and ice). So should I just return as 157cm is too short (I typically use 165cm but did use 160 as well and different models feel differently) or it is not such a big deal (plus again there is a chance I won't get what I want, plus shipping back is a pain and I would need to wait 2-3 weeks more)

Thanks - I knew the risks but reviews were good so I just got really
Unlucky I guess

I would turn them back, at your height those are going to feel like snow blades. Nothing worse than skis that are too short....don't ask me how I learned that lesson. I don't care to relive the nightmare......
