Sorry for yet another 'what length' question. I'm 5'8", 165 lbs, I ski fast and steep and of piste. I live near lake Tahoe and ski most of the areas up here, though mostly at Squaw. I'm trying to decide between the 173 and 180 Explosiv. I'd normally opt for the 180, particularly since I now have a pair of 178 Dynastar Nobis Inspired which I hate; they feel some combo of too short and too soft. However I tried both lengths of Explosiv at CMH and preferred the 173. But we were in pow and so I had no chance to try them on hard pack or crud, at mach speed etc. I've seen other posts on this forum from big boys skiing the 180, so maybe 173 is plenty... Or maybe not. Advice? Thanks!
