    Ms HAB has the 162s and loves them. She's 5'3", 125lb, and a high intermediate skier. The 152 sounds reasonable for someone your wife's size.

    I really like the 186, but the idea of that ski in a 196 sounds a little bit terrifying. I do only weigh about 165lb, so that's that.

    Keep in mind that a 29er fork will be taller at a given travel, so even if you go to 10mm less, the net fork length won't be any shorter.

    Thanks. Did you go 27 or 28 for the liner, into a 27.5 shell? Intuition says round up for the Pro Tour but I'm wary since the Hawx shell runs a little short, and I'm tight on overall volume.

    Warden shares all 4 heels and 2 toe holes with STH2. The 2 common toe holes are the ones that the Shift nearly shares, but reusing them moves the toe piece about 5mm.
