So here's my situation, I am trying to find a ski for going faster and straighter down chutes/steeps, off small cliffs (I'm comfortable up to about 20'...trying to grow balls and go bigger...), and in general ripping through crud. I have skied the mythic rider and think that it's what I want, but I'm hesitant to buy it without knowing more about the pro. Some of the reasons that I rode the mythic instead of the pro on demo day are that 1) I'm 5'7, 155 and the pro is advertized as needing really big, strong skiers...I like to think I'm pretty strong, but I'm def. not too big. 2) I have a pair of Karhu Jak Team editions that are 100 under foot, so I don't need another powder ski (the mythic's are 88 compared to the pro's 97) and 3) the mythic comes in a 178 (which is what I think I want) while the pro is 176 or 186. (76 too short, 86 too long?) My current skis range from 162 to 172 depending on the ski and I know that I want something longer, more stable, etc...however, I live in the east and ski at Jay which means lots of REALLY tight trees, and I don't want huge sticks tying me up. Has anyone my size skied the Pro? What do ya think?
