I'm thinking about buying the new 2006 Volkl Attiva 5 star. I skied them today and thought they were great. Nice and light but still super responsive. My question is, I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs femal former racer, now ski instructor. I tried out the 161cm but wondered if the 154 would be better. The dealer had alot of big guys on the 161cm Supersports. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

At your height/weight and ability I would think you would love the 161. You may find that you overpower the 154. I'm a bit taller and definitely heavier than you and have skied the Attiva 5 Star in 161 and 168...I love the 161 for playing, but need the extra length for higher speeds. I'm also an ex-racer, ex-ski instructor.

BTW - the Attiva 5 Star is one of my new favorites, but can't afford it this year!

Thanks for the advice gotamagal. I think you're probably right about the 161. The price is steep, but hopefully I can get them on a pro-form.

Thanks again!
