Sorry, never mind --  moved question to http://www.epicski.com/t/103048/all-mountain-race-ski/60#post_1556409 Would have deleted thread, but can't seem to figure out how to do that.....

i am a simular hight to you, for all mountain skis i tend to go with the low 160 lengths but it really depends on the ski.

 

quite a range of skis in that list, from the head titan thats almost a wider slalom ski to something like the line prophet softer lighter and twin topped.

 

definitely try the head rev 85 pro, i have demoed the rev 80 and in my opinion this is a series of skis well worth looking at.

Thanks wardy89.  Since I realized people are clicking on this thread, I decided I should (for the convenience of the viewer), restore the original question, rather than leaving it as a link to another thread.  Sorry about about the confusion.  Here it is -- feel free to reply in either placesmile.gif:

 

 

 

 I'm heading up the mountains soon and, among those available for demo, this is what they recommended for me.  Can you recommend what lengths I should try in any of these?  I'm 5'7", 157# (though usually ski at 148#), ex-racer, and will be using this for general all-mtn skiing (steeps, bumps, bowls, trees, groomers).  I'm particularly interested in the Kastles, Stocklis, and Heads, since I've never skied any of these brands; also curious about the Volks.  Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. [Since the Heads aren't SL skis, 163 seems short; and 178 seems long in the MX88.  But what do I know....]
