Not sure about length with these. I'm 5' 8" 170#. Level II Skier on Tele. Usually like my skis in the mid 170's. Made a mistake last year and bought Sir Francis Bacons in 172. Mounted with 22Designs Axls. Too short. Thinking with any rockered ski I probably belong in the high 170s on Tele. 185 seems a bit long, while 175 would probably leave me with another too-short set-up. The rockered skis seem to have too small a sweet spot for me on Tele in my usual lengths so I should go a bit longer, tho 185 seems too big. Not a problem on Alpine. Probably most likely to use as a resort powder ski and for touring. Live out west in the less than blower country of SW Idaho. Any opinions on how short these ski? How big a sweet-spot? Thanks
