length advice

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm 5'8" and light - about 125 lbs. I ski about 50% NE and 50% West and am a high level intermediate (level 7ish) skier. I recently demoed the Elan Magfire 10s out west and loved them. I am pretty sure I'm going to get these, though I'm also considering the Mag8's. I was skiing 168s out west, but I'm thinking that for my height/weight/ability this might be a bit too long. Wouild I be better off on 160s? I generally ski a variety of terrain - I enjoy moderatley steep powder and groomers and ski moderately fast.

Any advice in terms of ski and length is appreciated.

thanks in advance.

Stick with the 10. The length is really up to you. To me 168 seems as if it would be a bit long, but I've been skiing on tiny hills with icy hardpack for quite a few years; on an open hill with deep snow you might want to go long.
