I have been thinking about the Fischer RX8 skis for awhile now and it sounds perfect for my style of skiing. I am currently on 188 volkl G31 and want something faster edge to edge and a better hold on ice. Due to my size of 6'5" and wt around 220 I was curious as to how short I can ski this ski without any negative consequences. I have read on here about some pretty big guys on the 160-165 length and enjoying the ski. At first I thought that my only choice would be the 180 length but now I am rethinking maybe I should be around 170-175 for my size. I don't have any chances of demoing these skis due to where I live. Hopefully I will be able to snag some used RX8's on ebay towards the end of the season.
