I just bought these skis (Check the Topic) and have to say i am pretty darnn excited. I used to ride Solomons and Fischer but after hearing so many great things about "Head" skis, i decided to take a plunge with my wallet. Now here is the thing. I am a 6'3 guy type III skier, and I got these skis in 170cm size. I used to ski on 180's and thought those were way to long. I then switched to 175 and it seemed ok. Now I went down to 170... Now I am bit worried that I might have made a mistake. I am afraid about stability at high speeds, however I noticed all slalom and GS skiers definitely use shorter skis on the world cup. Slalom skiers are really short, chin size. This is where my "Head" skis measure up to me. Just above my chin.
BTW i am new to this site and find it awesome so far :) Will be great being part of the community.
