Then go with the shorter ones. Which what I meant to say from the beginning. :D

FWIW - I skied the Voile Charger in both 181 and 191 and kept the 181s. The 191s were rockets and tough to turn quickly in the trees. The 180+ should be plenty long and will provide TONS of float anyway. Get the short ones and screw in some NT Bulldogs with the tour toggle. You will love yourself even more as you climb up.

OK... I'm pulling the plug on the 183's.

Of course this means no pow this winter.... :shock:

I call dibs on the 183's when you decide they are too short!

I'd go with the shorter ski but mount bindings aft slightly, say 2 cm. Alternately, use inserts for two separate mounted positions.

hmmmm... I don't know Greg. Who's more deserving you or Telemann?? Of course you would at least ski them. Bruce would probably make a chair out of them and brag that he finally found a good use for fat tele skis.... :)
