I don't know your height and weight but with these, you better go longer since they have a good front and back rocker; so if you take the 187, it will ski like a much shorter ski on hardpack...
Yea the Bridge was great! Even though it was a lot longer a bit wider @187 and 95 vs my current Armada Pipe Cleaners @ 176 and 85 mm waist they didn't feel larger and good on turning. I also noticed that they seem to be a bit less stiff and have a good "pop" to them letting me mess around more on the trails.

The Bridge comes in a 188 I think, is a great ski and can be had last I looked for around $350-400 for last years model. The Volkl Wall is a bit thinner than the Bridge and comes in a 185 and Nordica The Ace goes up to a 184. Good luck!
Yea I can't find any 2014 Bridges at a low price so I may have to get new ones.
Looking around at other skis I found this baby on sale( VOLKL WALL:
Really thinking of pulling the trigger on these. If the bindings don't work out for me I can always buy "park bindings" later or move my current LOOK bindings.
At this point I can probably afford these now. But also not sure as I haven't ridden these and have read mixed reviews. One review claiming these are awesome park skis with pop and good on groomers, but another claiming they were a bit stiff.
My two options at this immediate moment would be getting these now or waiting till end of the season when I have some more cash laying around and buy a brand new pair of Volkl Bridges, (or some other ski that catches my eye pricewise) I can also probably up my spending to $600-700 end of the season.
