Ski Size?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I'm 5"7', 120lbs., male, intermediate-advanced, set on the '07 Dynastar Trouble Makers. Should I get 155cm or 165cm? I'm leaning towards the 155's, but I want someone elses opinion to make sure i make the right decision. BTW the 155's are $75 cheaper.

This post has been here 2 days and no one has made a cheap joke about size not mattering?

I'm not in ski sales, but for your size, I think the 155's would work well enough for you (especially if you can save some $$). But, if you make the wrong decision, don't blame me. :

No way, 155 is way too short especially considering these are twin tips, right? I'm about the same size and the only 155's I have are my atomic m:EX; my gotamas are 168. Get the 165 at the very least.

I agree that 155 is too short.

I also think at 5'7" 120 lbs, your money would be better spent on dinner.

I think the 155s would be fine.

However, this thread is in the wrong place.

Quick tally: 2 votes for the 155, 2 votes for the 165. Anyone got a coin to flip?

Funny that this may be one of the few places where people crack more jokes about skinny ppl more than those on the heavy side. I like it.

Wow. Making fun of people over the internet is amusing for you? I'm 15, I shouldn't be fat like you probably are.

"Wow. Making fun of people over the internet is amusing for you?"

Welcome to the Interwebs, kid. As They'd say over on TGR: "Sack up or go home."



In terms of sizing, here's a good general guideline to ski sizes:

BE WARNED...if you cannot handle the warm-hearted and loving jabs thrown to you here on Epic you will NEVER survive over on TGR.

You have been duly warned!

And warned again!

Your right, I just can't handle your intense internet abuse. It's just so intense! It kills me psychologically. *sarcasm*

Either ski could work. Some questions: Are you young and still growing? What type of turns do you like to make? What type of terrain do you like to ski? How fas do you like to go? I am not familiar with the skis, but I believe they are twin tips which sometimes ski shorter than stated length. Not knowing the answers I would advise the 165.
post #16 of 20
Go with the longer ones.
post #17 of 20
Longer is better for twin tips. Do remember that some length will be sacrificed for the second tip (2-5cm), so 155s are more likely to be 150s. Go with the 165s.

Have you skied anything else as a reference point?

I know exactly why you're asking. I toss and turn quite a few times and finally got the 155 myself. But...I'm 15 lb lighter and 3" shorter!

Are you planning to use it a lot in the park?

Yeah, they love to talk about gear at TGR. JONG! :

A friendly suggestion xpmr5: get used to posting here and lurk for a while on TGR before thinking of posting there. Don't take things so serious, and try not to sound upset in your responses.

If someone makes fun of me, I should be able to make fun of him back, right?
