Ok, so it looks like I will be ordering a pair of custom skis and if anybody that has a referral code would like to message me it it would be much appreciated.

More and more I've been thinking about the length of the skis. Right now I'm leaning towards the 175. I'm about 5'7'' 165-170lbs. I'm still growing a little bit so do you guys think I should move up to the 182? My current free skis are a pair of 166 scott reverse's. My fear of jumping up to 182 is that it's a 16cm difference. I'm open to any suggestions.

Depends on the ski. A 16 cm jump from a non-rockered ski to a very rockered ski is less than it seems. You are talking about adding 3 inches to each end of your ski. Likely with a shorter running length. 

 

My guess is that if you are using a tip/tail rocker ski and still growing - 182 is probably the choice. You could easily add 5-10 pounds by next winter... which would put you solidly in 182 territory and  decently beyond the 175/177 kind of zone.

 

If Praxis  - ask Keith :D

I agree with spindrift, get the 182.  I'm 5'7", 150 pounds and my Billy Goats are 184cm and they are definitely not too long.  When I met Scott at the ON3P tent at Copper Mountain last year, I asked him what size Billy Goat I should demo and he said 184 and it is perfect.

So I went ahead and ordered the 182 praxis gpo. I'm excited to get them but I'll have to wait a couple of months to use them.
