Will head 2007 iM72 will be OK for women?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My wife is 5'5" (163cm) tall and only 105lbs. I am try to get her a HEAD 2007 Monster M72 (156cm) for her. Am I crazy?

 

She is never skiing before. So, she is pretty entry level.

Yes.   

 

Spend extra money on better boots for her to start in before you buy skis.

Actually, I want to do this because I can get this M72 for only $169. But if I go for some others like Lite Thang for her, that's even more money.

I understand that. 

 

What I am saying is :

 

Take your current boot budget, whatever it is, and add the ski money to it.  

 

So your new boot budget = old boot budget + $LiteThang.    

 

Do _not_ buy skis before she skis her first time no matter how good the deal is.

 

She will be happier in the long run, and a better skier faster.
