I love mine. Carving is effortless on them + they are very light and forgiving. I have switched from AC4.

Thank you for the compliment... Taking your question at face value, what would be your concern about the length? My personal skis are both 170cm (Nordica Mach 3 Powers and Hot Rod Afterburners), and I skied the Rotors at very high speeds at both Vail and Copper. My Copper day I was skiing alone, so just ripped top-to-bottom runs on the Super Bee, Eagle, Flyer, Sierra, and Timberline lifts, and I never felt that the skis were at all unstable or unpredictable in any way.

Keep in mind that these are an all-mountain ski at 76 under foot, so surface area for float is not a primary need, either.

So, what's your concern with the length? The longest they come is 179.

 just seemed to me to be a bit short for non EC carving type ski.  Most folks in your size weight range usually go 177 or larger....no offense intended. Im your size as well so was curious.

 Great review.  I have always been interested in that ski, and am looking for a front side complement to my Mythic Riders.  I will have to give those a try.

 The review said something about a 9-day ski/write retreat.  Did you post about that too?

*chuckle*

I didn't think anyone would be interested, so no, I didn't. Thanks for asking, though... I find that it's consistent for me: at about day 12 on-snow for a season, I really begin to ski well. It happened at exactly my 12th day this season, which was a few days before the end of this retreat. I really feel for those who are unable to get that many days in during a season, because I really think that things change at that point.

I had never skied 9 days in a row in Colorado, either, and that was just a great opportunity, too. I am going to work on finding ways of making that an annual retreat. Using the time to write a new book makes a good reason, too.

 ok- I had thought you were writing that there was some kind of ski/write retreat organized by some group such as PSIA, but I had not heard of such.  OTOH, maybe such a camp might not be a bad idea.  A lot of aspirants to the Demo team could improve their chances by becoming better writers, and there might be writers who could learn to improve their skiing.  Maybe that is something our friends at epic ski could contemplate.
