Dynastar Powertrack 89 Sizing for 5'6" 155lbs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Apologize for cross-post in another thread, but felt bad hijacking the other thread so I made my own.

 

I'm 5'6", fluctuate between 150-160, was looking at getting the Dynastar Powertrack 89, but couldn't find anywhere to demo them. Would the 172 or 179 be a better fit for me? I'm East Coast based (VT, ME, NH) so I do enjoy carving at moderate-high speed on the groomers, but if the conditions allow, I love spending the whole weekend hitting the bumps and roughed up groomers. I would say I lean more towards being an athletic skier on the spectrum of finesse-athletic-power.

 

I did manage to demo the Blizzard Brahma in 166, which I loved, but thought was too short and think the 173 would be perfect for me. The Brahma is in a similar class to the Powertrack 89, but supposedly stiffer from what I've read, which is why I was thinking I might have to size up to the 179 on the Powertrack.. Any thoughts from people who have skied both?

172 would be your best option on this ski for you.
