Kids Ski Sizing Quandry.....Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have narrowed down the skis for my 11 yr old twins (boy/girl)
Both skiing since 4

Stats:
Him: 105lbs & 147cms tall (134cms to nose/126 to chin)
Her: 72lbs and pretty much the same height

Plans:
Him: I am planning on the Rossi Bandit Jr or possibly Mantra Jr for him and they come in 128/138.
138 seems too long and 128 too short.

Her: Line Celebrity Minis
133 seems perfect.

Any comments on sizing for my son???

TIA

138 Mantra Jr
post #3 of 4
I have to agree with Epic - go with the Mantra Jr. in the 138 length.

My 10 son will be trying out his new Mantra Jr's soon. He is a little shorter than your son, but quite a bit lighter (about 70 lbs) and he got the 138's. He races and has 130 for SL and 144 for GS, so I thought the 138 would be a good free ski that will last a couple seasons.

The Line Celebrity Mini's sound like a good choice for your daughter.

Thanks Guys.
Ordered from Al's Ski Barn.

Her: '07 133 Line Celebrity Minis for her with '07 Tyrolia Mojo 7's
Him: '08 138 Mantras with '07 Rossi Scratch Jr's

Of course I ordered a Volkl cap and Gotama T for Dad with all the money I saved.
