What size?

I am 5' 9" and weigh 165 lbs. I have been skiing the S7's in a 188cm mounted 2 cm forward of '0' & love it. I originally thought I would want the 180 Soul 7, but after seeing them I am now thinking the 188's might be a better choice. I also noticed they have the '0' line on the Soul 7 much farther back than on the S7. I have really grown accustomed to the more forward mounting position. Any feedback?

I bought a pair last season & they work great here in the Central Sierras. High rockered tip helps keep them on top in our heavier Powder. Love them on Groomers as well, especially on packed powder as long as it is edgeable these skis are awesome.

My research last season told me to go longer. I am 5'9" tall & weigh 165 lbs., 155 lbs. last season when I bought them. I have been skiing on approx. 175 CM length skis in the past. It was suggested overwhelmingly to get the 188 CM. And I am very glad I did. When skiing the groomed, I don't notice the extra length, & really like the extra float in the powder. I also notice they turn on a dime in our tight tree skiing.

So my suggestion would be the 178's for you, mounted at the '0' mark. I mounted mine at 1 CM forward of '0' due to my lighter weight at the time. Most heavier guys were saying 1 CM back from '0'. And now with my added weight I am considering moving them back.

Great skiing to you, You will love this ski.
