Interesting on the length: my pre-season catalogue indicates sizing of 170/177/181, not the 164/175/186. I was only able to get very limited time on this ski in less than ideal conditions (spring hardpack) so I am not the best authority yet on sizing (I will know more in by Dec 1st!) but I would say that 175-ish is the most versatile length for most people (I am 150lbs or so and I would buy it, for comparison I ski the 180 i-GS RD). 165 would be the zippy choice, but likely lacking some versatility. I really like the iM77 in a 170, but wouldn't mind going up a few cm for a crudbuster-type ski). I ski the Elan M777 in a 176 (we have tight trees here) but I could ski the 184 too.
Regarding purchase: ours should be in stock within a week. MAP is $699, and our "preseason Barking Bear Special" will be significantly cheaper. PM me if interested....
