I'm looking to buy fischer progressor 900. But I'm in doubt as to whether I should go for the 170 or 175 cm. (I found a good deal on both sizes.)
Age 33, advanced skier (I think), 178 lbs, 6 feet & 3 inches (tall and skinny).
I ski 95% on piste. I do mostly small turns.
I ski in Europe where the hills are often packed snow or icy. So I need a ski that can 'cut through the ice', but still with the amount of flex that fits my weight and style of skiing.
Last year I tried salomon 24 hours (170 cm), which I actually liked a lot, but they became unstable at higher speeds, and also I kinda wanted a bit more challenging ski. Stiffer, but not extremely stiff. That's why I'm now looking at Fischer p900.
But I'm not sure about the length. What do you think given the description above? 170 or 175?
I know there are lots of threads about ski length, and I have read them all.
But I could still really use some advice/thoughts. It will be greatly appreciated.
