Length Negligible?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was hoping I could elicit some of the technical expertise of some of you. At what point is length of ski negligible? I personally have a relatively good idea of what skis I like and in general what lengths I like given the particular ski and its intented use but was curious how much difference does say 10cm make or even 5cm for that matter. I mean we are only talking about 4inches(10cm). I have seen and read on this forum so much arguing about length of skis so I was curious at what point is it negligible.

No current manufacturer manufactures skis in negligibly different lengths. Even relatively unskilled skiers can differentiate between skis 5cm different in length.

However, that doesn't mean you can't easily adapt to a fairly wide range of lengths. Its all about what is best for the type of skiing you plan on doing and the type of technique you plan on using.
