This is my first year skiing a course and i can do it 15 off at 26mph. I am thinking of getting the Connelly F1X and i was wondering if i should get the 65in or 67in I believe a 66in would be perfect <BR>I am 5'7" and 145lbs <BR> <BR>Here is a link to the ski <BR><a href="http://www.connellyskis.com/index.php?mod=skis&amp;id_prd=124&amp;id_hed=5" target="_blank">http://www.connellyskis.com/index.php?mod=skis&amp;id_prd=124&amp;id_hed=5</a> <BR> <BR>Thanks

Tough call but I think the 65 would be too small (definately the possibility for some OTF's) and the 67 might be a bit big at shorter line lengths when you make it there but otherwise would be fine... The bigger ski will keep you from sinking much at slower speeds...

Since the F1X is a shaped ski you can stretch the size a little bit. I'm on a 67" F1X and I'm 6'2" 185lbs. But anything under 31mph and it's a wet ride. If you are going to be going over 30mph I'd say the 65 otherwise the 67. Will they let you demo?
