    Had green now have orange. The Cheeto skis have really grown on me. I like the orange.

    Can some shop rat throw a tape measure on the current year 178 and 185cm Zero G 95 and tell me what actual tip to tail length is?
    I'm kinda right in between sizes.

    Blizzard Bodacious in 175-180cm lengths
    It looks like the Bo isn't made in any sizes except 186 and 196.
    I'm only 5'7" [getting old, so probably getting shorter now...sigh] and a 186 is way more length than I want or need.
    I've got a 2014 Bo, and I love it - but am getting anxious about replacing it someday.

    Is Blizzard going to start making the Bo in sizes for non-fat/short people again?
    [I honestly hope the pendulum has swung as far as it's going to go on "light and playful" and we'll return to having more damp chargers...at least before I'm a shriveled old man, who has no need of them.]

    Blizzard doesn't seem to have much interest in the Bo unfortunately - I LOVE that ski in a 186. But they're only making them in limited quantities, and don't really seem to be pushing/hyping them much. I have no real knowledge, but I'd be surprised if they added a shorter one.

    So, this obviously isn't a blizzard question, exactly, then.
    Has anyone skied the Volkl Confession in comparison to the Bo? (Especially the OG "Tank" version.)
    They do make the Confession in 179 [Though I haven't been able to find one, inexpensively, to suit my cheapo soul.]

    Because that version did not sell... The Cochise sold like hotcakes but that version of the Bo did not... I hated both the Cochise and 19x Bo, but love my Angel's of Black Death Bos... That ski killed it and was not hard to ski but was heavy... I do now own 193 Rustler 11s that I cant wait to get on... If you are getting older and shorter that sounds like your ski...Click image for larger version.

    I've skied both in a 186 (I'm your size and also getting shorter); they are more similar than different. Heavy, powerful, don't really come alive until you're moving at a fair speed, tend to plow through difficult snow rather than float over it. Although I own the black 2019 re-issue of the Bodacious, I find myself using it seldom in comparison to my 188 Rustler 11's.

    Bodacious is a ski made by Blizzard, originally influenced and developed with Arnie Backstrom. It’s still made in very small quantities for a particular customer who usually gets them on some sort of hook up. You’re not gonna see it in a 176 because it’s not the type of ski generally skied by folks who want something smaller. If you’re 5’7” and not looking at the 186 Blizzard likely makes a different ski more suited for you (hint: Rustler 11).

    Thanks for the feedback.
    If I can find a pair of R11's cheap, I might try them.
    But I seriously doubt I'll like them as much as the OG Bodacious - no matter what is "suited" for me.

    I have a pair of Cochises too, and they see a lot of rotation - but the Bo's come out more often than one might expect. I've had weird conditions where I'd expect to use the Cochise, [it's not very deep at all] the Bo skis way better.

    Guess I'll see about picking up an old copy, or perhaps branching out to a Confession.

    Or try to find a metal Katana in 184. More accessible than OG Bodacious but no speed limit in every kind of terrain as well.

    If it makes any difference they definitely don't ski short
    TLDR; Ski faster. Quit breathing. Don't crash.
