Hi. I need some length advice. I'm 6 ft, 185lbs and an aggressive skier. I normally ski volkl mantra 194s with marker duke bindings for my all mountain resort off piste day set up. I want to buy the stokes for a lighter weight multi day touring/ski mountaineering set up and don't know whether to go for the 182s or get the longer 192s. Any advice? Will the 182s feel short? Thanks

I've got a pair of 191 mantras and this is their fourth season. I skied them last weekend but noticed that they seem not to have a natural bend anymore (think the word I'm looking for is camber). When i put thebskis together the edges touch all thenway from the riser to the tail without a natural gap around the waist near the bindings. They skied ok and there is still flex but felt a little sluggish. Are they just old? Is it normal to lose that natural bend? I stored them over the summer in my back room with a an elesticated bungee around the waist just above the bindings. I'm wondering whether that could have caused the problem. Any ideas anyone? Thanks
Ps - love the mantra. Awesome ski.
