Rossi E83 - what length?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello everybody,

 

After quite a long time of looking for a new skis, I decided to focus on the Rossi E83. Before asking the question - few words about me.

I weigh about 72-73kg (before the next season I'm gonna lose about 3-4kg at least, so lets assume my weight is 68kg maybe...), Im 177cm tall. I consider myself as advanced intermediate (and still willing to advance ;) ).

 

And the final question: what length should I go for? 168cm od 176cm?

 

I prefer medium turns (sometimes short, long - rarely), I like skiing at all conditions, definitely will try some shallow powder with wider skis...

 

So, thanks for possible responses :)

But won't the ski become too short when I increase my skills?

168cm E83 is around a 15TR and an accomplished skier can arch these at 40-50 mph, is that fast enough? Yes you can go faster w/ longer boards. But ski length has little to do with control. It's the guy on top of the boards. Go w/ 168cm and work on your technique.

Ok thanks. And... Well, I thought to myself accidentally - in such a case, what about the E88? Maybe I could go for this one?

E88 is a stiffer more demanding ski. Do a search and there are plenty of reviews on the models you are interested in.

Yes, I've already made a lot of searching about both E83 and E88. From what I've noticed - yes, E88 is stiffer so more demanding. I think I can handle it and it MIGHT be better for me a Im going to improve my skills. Well... I would love to know if I can go for the E88 - mr Rossi Smash, could you please tell me something about it?
