I'm interested in both skis, and trying to arrange a demo of both at the moment.
I am 5'11" and 152 lbs. I noticed the 88 is only available in lengths starting at 170, 178 and 186, whereas the 14 is available in 152, 160, 168 and 176.
I read a number of reviews here and elsewhere from much heavier skiers, and several Amphibio 88 users in the 190-200 lb range said they really needed to put a lot of pressure on the ski to really get it turning. Just curious if anyone in my height / weight range has demoed or owns either of these skis, and what their thoughts are about the ideal length.
