With skis now deeply discounted, I'm considering augmenting my equipment with a pair of Latigos. Did not have a chance to demo them but have skied on other Blizzards in the Freemountain series and own a pair of Bonafides, so am reasonably certain that the Latigo will work for me. Not an expensive gamble at the sale prices anyway. Looking for some feedback on what length is appropriate.
About me: Near retirement age but relatively fit and a reasonably solid level 7 skier - 5'7" and 190 lbs. Very happy with my 173cm Bones for western trips. For eastern hardpack, I've bee using a venerable pair of 176cm Atomic LT12s, which the Latigos would obviously replace.
The 184 Latigo seems too long and the 170 too short, leaving the 177 as the obvious logical candidate.
