Volkl G4 Length ???

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ihave been using a pair of Volkl G41's legnth 188. I weigh 205# and stand 5'9". My ability level is an honest 7/8. My ski day is roughly 60% off-piste with the groomer situation varying between small to medium bumps, steeps and high speed cruising. I want to do more glade skiing on my off-piste time.

I very much like the feel and stability of the G 41's and I am well indoctrinated in the Volkl Vertigo line of ski behavior (I also own a pair of G30's 188's). I am interested in how much float and stability I may be giving up in exchange for some added nimbleness if I get a pair of G4's in 178 legnth. Oddly enough, whenever I tried to demo this legnth, there were none available but I have an opportunity to get some 2003's in the 178 legnth for a decent price. Thanks

Where do you ski?

I think you would be ok. I am 20lbs. lighter than you and I had a great day on the 178's at Mary Jane. 8" new over hard bumps.
They skied the bumps well, were really nice in the trees and I was very suprised how well they held an edge on the hard stuff late in the day.

You may also want to look at the 724PRO in 177. You should do well on a 177cm ski, don't worry.

Everyone, thanks for the input!! Epic, I ski in the west--mostly Utah, but also Whistler Blackcomb and locally in Arizona.

Get a 180 Explosive and see what you have been missing with a sub-90-mm waist.
