Need help with Salomon xw Fury size

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, trying to decide between 177 and 170 cm of 2010 Salomon X-wing Fury. 

I am 42 yo, 170lbs, 6 feet even (182 cm), very fit. 

Mostly ski off-piste, moguls, trees, some groomers, would say 60/40.

My current skis are 166cm  Salomon X-wing 8 and they are not stable enough to my liking on high speeds, also do not have enough grip on icy snow.

Mostly ski in lake Tahoe area.

Thanks!

Like me, you fall between sizes; the 170's will give you more quickness on piste and in bumps, the 177's will be more fun in crud and variable. Great tight places and bump skis, excellent for lighter folks ripping crud and variable, but Fury's are not ice skates. You mention grip, so if that's a significant part of the package, and you like the lightness/playfulness of the Fury, suggest a more recent Fischer.

I guess 177 it is then.
