I'm looking for a replacement powder/all mountain ski and am leaning strongly towards Line's new SFB, I am just a little unsure on sizes.
Height is 5' 11'' and weight about 170 pounds (male), age 36, advanced skier. Based in the UK and not skiing as much as I used to now with young family but still getting away when I can. Usuall haunts Verbier, Chamonix, Val D'Isere, St Anton, Whistler whenever funds allow.
New planks will be a one ski quiver and previous skis were 2008/2009 K2 Obsethed in 179 and Line Prophet 100 in 186. Loved the rocker tip on the older Obsethed and missed it when I was on the Prophets (though they were awesome in everything but the deepest pow). The SFB looks to be just what I want with early rise for deeper days but still having regular camber for all mountain.
Am leaning towards the 184 as I think this will be a similar real length to my old 179 K2 Obsethed... I found the k2 a little longer than stated and could be wrong but suspect the Line's come up a little shorter than stated.
Any thoughts, I'm trying to decide between 184 and 178 SFB (leaning towards the 184) but don't have chance to demo both sizes?
