180 or 187

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Ok, so after a lot of deliberation , I think I've decided on getting the blizzard Brahma (beat out the line prophet 90 and Rossi experience 88). I actually hadn't really heard of blizzard until fairly recently, or at least didn't know much about them. The only thing I can't decide is the length. With the tip and tail rocker, I realize it will ski shorter than the actual length. How much shorter does it feel? Enough to warrant getting the 187? For background, I'm 6'3 and about 210 pounds with a more of a cruising style. Definitely not a hard charger.

Unfortunately, this is one of those cases where a lot of it does come down to personal preference. 187 would probably be a better fit for you. What are you on right now?

When you rent what length do you usually go on?

I want to say something in the upper 170s. For some reason I'm drawing a blank.

 

Though my decision may have been made for me, as now I can't find the 180s for sale anywhere any more

They ski short, I would say 187 for sure.

187

The only times you will notice the extra length is when there is loose snow to butter down and when you have the edges tipped over...a lot.

 

The rest of the time they will ski as normal.  Flipcore is nearly unflappable.
