Well, maybe nothing but according to Dynastar they're 79mm in all lengths.

They lie on their website! I'm guessing 80 is the 'average' and they are different at each length. Anyone know?

dfifferent in some lengths as they get shorter the get fatter.

Yeah, Dynastar don't exactly make it clear but the waist width increases as the length decreases. The 184 is definitely 79mm, the mid lengths are 80 and the shorter lengths are 81, but I am not exactly sure at which length they change.

Well, actually they're very clear...just incorrect.

Hmm... It's called "using a reference size", as for different waist widths, do the math. If you us one waist width for all sizes inany given model two things occur. 1# turning radius changes even more drmaticly than the 1m diference fore each size. 2# If I ski on a 178cm and youski on a 165cm we are not going to feel the same thing out of the ski. I should also mention it is much easier to change waist width in production that tip and tail width. Other factors to consider "taper angle"!

No, it's not called using a reference size. They have a chart listing dimensions for each length and it lists 79 for every length.

can you tell me where you saw that chart? all the ones i have list the lengths of the skis and one ski length is in BOLD to indicate it is the reference length
