Advice re Ski Length

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am planning to buy a pair of Fischer RX 8 FTIs and am undecided whether I should get them in a 165 or 170 length.

I am a level 7 skier weighing 165 lbs and 5' 9" tall and ski mostly groomed. I like all turn sizes, as well as skiing fast. I am currently using Salomon Crossmax in a 170.

I welcome your suggestions.

Why go smaller? U r skiing on 170s...do they feel too long? If not, I'd stick with that. You're a decent sized guy...you can easily handle the 170...it'll be more stable and still be fast and nimble.

170 cm is the perfect length for an RX8 for a 165 lb person skiing mostly groomed terrain.

Get the 170s unless you plan to ski in a skirt.
