    Are my skis too long?

    Hi, I would like some help on this subject matter. I have just recently purchased some second hand Black Crows Captis skis in 178cm.



    I am 170cm tall (5ft 7") and I weigh 10st 10 (150lbs). I can ski all of the mountain, the majority being 60% piste and 40% off piste.

    The skis sit around 8cm taller than me and I just wanted to hear peoples opinions as I am not to sure myself and I will be testing them in the next couple of days.

    All feedback will be much appreciated

    I forgot to mention they are all mountain skis with double rocker.

    I'd say the 178cm ski should be $$$

    On the money.

    You've about 10lbs and a inch on me, with rockered, my sweet spot is 170 - 178cm. I'm more 65% off piste, 35% on and like 170 in tight trees and tight bumps, not so much on the grom where I fell like I'm running out of edge and want longer.

    I mean I was just a little concerned that they are a little taller then me but I'm sure I will get on with them. Thanks for the help mate! Unlike other bellends on here...

    I looked this ski up. Never heard of it. I think you’re all set thanks to the rocker and also there appears to be no metal in the construction. The length could be a problem for a guy your size with other models but hopefully not these. Good luck with them.
