I typed this on my phone... meant race not rave...

I think shorter length skis just have too short of contact zones to be fast enough on the world cup.

I was talking skate skis not classic btw.

Blah, I think you should send a suggestion to Rossi that they change the name of the race stock and race room, to rave stock and rave room.

:-P

I did wonder for about 2 seconds but went back and re-read.

So does this mean that the sweet spot is somewhere in the 180 - 190 range for all adult skiers? One of the complaints I've read here is that skate skis are not long enough for tall, heavier skiers.

Let's also apply to classic! What's the tallest heaviest on?
