Madshus glitterind sizing vs. Rossignol outback 68

I found a new pair of Glitterinds for really cheap on REI outlet. 68-55--62. The identical sidecut dimensions for
Rossignol 68 Outbacks. However, the Glitterinds fit for how tall a skier is, not weight. This standard puts me on a 190 ski. The identically dimensioned Fischer and Rossignols put me on a 169 ski, according to my weight.

I can only get the Madshus at a super cheap price at 170. My classic nordic skis are 193.

I'm obviously new to all this. $94.00 for a new pair of Glitterinds. Is 170 going to be too short?

I keep wondering about the wide variance in sizing in ski length between the Rossis, Fischer and the Glitterinds--nearly identically dimensioned skis.

I'm just looking for easy day outings in various conditions on easy slopes, looking for glide and climbing more than carving downhills. In fact I just want to get down safely; I like climbing and gliding on the flats best.

Anybody have experience/advice?
