I'm about to trade in my current AT set up and hoped there'd be a few fellow EC BCers to share some experience. I'm moving up from an 88mm ski to the Karhu Team 100/Line Prophet 100. For a 5'11"/175# guy EVERY post on TGR says to go 186cm. But most of the posts are for the West and/or at least some % inbounds. My use is off-piste (in the White Mountain area - Mt. Hale, Tucker Brook, Moosikauke, etc.). The guys in my local shop are strongly recommending the 179cm for maneuverability/quickness in the woods. My local shop is good - just wish we had the skis - and snow - to demo. Anyone offer support for the 179 instead of the 186? Thnx.
