Hi. Just picked up a like-new pair of 2V's in 172 (mounted with 9-14 PowerAXE's) for $200 at the ski swap. At that price, I couldn't resist. Here is my question: is this ski going to be too short for me in this length? I am a beginning racer, 5 foot 8, 150 pounds. I will be using the ski for training and fast cruising. A ski shop owner that I trust recommended that the 180 may be too much ski at my weight. Is the 172 too little ski? Issues such as stability and vibration dampening over a shorter length? Or are these skis going to be easier to flex while still being stable?
