    169 Hellbents?

    So I just picked up a pair of 179 Hellbents knowing they measured larger than they list. I picked them up a few days ago and good lord they're large. I'm 5'3" 140lbs and this is the most ski I've ever owned. I usually ski a 171 Prophet 100 as my every day ski. I've skied longer skis before but these are large. I've been looking to possibly switching them up for a 169. My question is has anyone skied the smaller Bent's and if so any opinions? Are they softer/too soft? Or should I just sack up and ski the larger sticks? Growing isn't an option. So do I sack up and ski the 179's or go with a ski size I'm used to?

    Sack up buddy.... Those are some pow skis so why would you want them any shorter? Answer you don't! Eat some food and put some meat on those bones. Insulation is always good in the winter....

    I knew they skied short when I bought them, but was super surprised by the actually size. Anyhow, I've decided to stick with the big sticks. They definitely will be fun looking over pucker with 2 surf boards on my feet. Now let's get some snow.
