Definitely not afraid of pink. Thanks for the lesson on the color/light spectrum though. Have either of you actually seen the jacket and can actually say whether it is more purple or pink? Just as a personal opinion. No need to get scientific. That would be a helpful answer worthy of a thumbs up.
Thanks

I am 6 foot and 175lbs aand last year I was in the same boat. I ski bridger bowl mostly and went with the 183 for the tight lines and frequent billy-goating. I love the ski. Everything that was promised and more. Fast, light, stable, responsive, and playful. After a few days of getting used to the extra gear I had now found, I was wishing I had the 193. Don't get me wrong, the 183 will do anything and excel at it, but if you are an aggressive skier with a race or big mountain background, I would suggest the 193. I have skied volkl my entire life and trust their product ultimately and the bottom line with the shiro... Best ski volkl has come up with yet!

I am 5'11'' and 175lbs. I have a pair of chopsticks at 185 that are great, and a pair of gotamas at 186 and they are a little sluggish, and a pair of bridges at 187 and they are long (for a drought time park ski) but soft enough to maneuver easily. I am a bit cautious of the 193. I feel like if the rocker is the same as in the chopstick the 183 will be much too short, yet i need it to be nimble and sable. The width makes me not afraid of the amount of float the 183 will have but would I be better off in the 193? I am an ex-racer who gets 80+ days a year so I can turn a larger ski and need stability while straight lining and dropping but spend quite a bit of time in the trees so agility is critical. Any thoughts? 183 or 193?
