Anyone Ski an Atomic B5 in 152cm's??

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought a new 05/06 B5 for 360.00 with bindings. I got such a killer price because it's an older ski model and the less than popular size. I was wondering if any men or larger women are skiing the B5 is 152cm's and how it holds up? I'm currently coming off a Atomic 11:20 in 170cm's. I just hope I don't find the ski twitchy and turny. I would also be interested in hearing about those of you who have demoed the 152 along side the 162cm. My weight is 5'7 and 175lbs. I would have liked the 162cm Metron but couldn't afford the prices if thnewer ski in this price.

SkiBump: Your weight on the 162 is equivalent to me on a 152cm. Did you or the mountain manager ever feel that the ski was too turny or wasn't stable at high speeds? I'll have to wait until next year to try them out. Thanks in advance.

I went the other way; 6' 190 lbs and ski a 172. With this I'm able to make longer turns, but I can still crank out short radius. These seem short to me, I can't imagine being on a 152.

KRP: Interesting enough when I compared them to my Atomic 11:20's the overal width of the ski had to be 1/4 wider. Factor in that the ski is very stiff it may actually work for me. I love speed so I hope that won't be an issue.
