    Sizing for Seth Pistols vs. 1080 Guns

    I have been looking into picking up some Pistols or Guns. I am trying to figure out what length I should be looking for. I demoed a pair of 175 Guns and they were pretty plush. As far as the Pistols are concerned, I can go up to the 179 or down to the 169. Ht/Wt is 5'11", 160 - ski backcountry whenever possible. Just had back surgery, so I don't want to tweak anything to protect my ego. Advice, opinions, and insights are appreciated.

    no shorter than 179 on the pistols.
    I personally think that sollies ski short, 185 in the gun isn't that long at all. But if you like the 175, what the heck do i know.

    I'm 5'9" 170lbs and have the 179s, I would not want to go any shorter than that.
