hey,looking at the 179 obsetheds and the 175 4frnt vct. I am torn because the vct don't have the rocker, but they are supposed to be stiffer.and if i go with the obsethed is it better to get the 169 of 179?i saw some guys saying that the k2's ski and feel longer than they are, i ride 174 pe right now and love them. i am right over 6' and 180lbs
The K2 rides a bit long, the 179 is like a 184 or something, but that isn't something you really notice. The rocker is super fun for any condition, except maybe ice. I love the softer feel of it too. The obSETHed is prefect, in my opinion, for everything. But the stiffer VCT is probably a bit better in the crud and ice, thanks to the stiffer flex. I am 6'1 and 195, and the 179 K2 is a sweet versatile ski.
