Metron M9 choice and size?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I've read probably 30 posts about the Metron 9 and I think I'm am leaning towards it, but I have a few questions about whether I should get the 10 and the size.

I've been skiing for about 5 years and, being a pretty athletic person I picked it up pretty fast and am now mostly on-piste black diamond at most of the mountains in the northeast. If I had to give myself a level, I would say somewhere around 6/7.

I'm a pretty lean guy at 6'2 175-180, and would like to buy something that I can handle now, but would also give me some room to improve into.

From what I've read, the Metron 9 or 10 (I can't even afford the B5 to think about it ) is what I've narrowed my choice down to. So, my first question is that even though I think I'm a good fit for the 9s, would it be worth it getting the 10s and trying to progress into them. I've read that the only difference is that the 10's are a little more stiff, which I like in a ski.

Also, my dimensions don't seem to match anyone else and I can't decide whether to get it longer because of my height or a little shorter because I'm not that heavy. I also saw that the Metrons should run a little short, and I think if I got the 10's I would definitely go the 164 route, while I think I would try to get the 9's in 171.

Any help would be really appreciated, thanks in advance!

Decided to get either Volkl AC2 or Atomic M:9...

So, after reading some more, I don't think I can handle the M10's yet... and now its between the M9 171s and the AC2's...

There are some good deals near me and I don't think I'm going to be able to demo them before I buy, so I was just wondering what the difference was between these two skis and if I do go with the AC2's (which I'm leaning towards now) should I go with the 170's (6'2 180)?
