I just won the giveaway from Sierra Skis
and now I get to choose what I want!
Now, I would choose the Czar hands down if they had one in a 182 but according to the website, (and unless SierraCanuck can find one buried in the back room for me) they do not.
I read that the czar boasts a "substantially rockered tip" which I assume makes it ski short?
I am 5'7, 160 and most of the skis that I own are in the low 170's range; however, I LOVE my 183 Bros, and feel like I can have my way with them on everything but solid ice despite their additional size.
My main question is, for those who have skied them, do you think that the 174 czar would ski much shorter than that, and thus not be what I will want? I would plan on using this ski for Powder Days only, east coast style. I will ski the Bros most other days, but would like to try the fun shape in the fresh.
I'd like to think that I charge pretty hard, and would worry about getting over the tips, and/or finding a speedlimit with the shorter ski, what do you think?
If the 174 czars are too short for me (which I'm guessing they are) than I'll probably go with the 177 lord. I don't really know much about this ski... educate me.
