  1. Jeff,
    You tested the Rossignol Experience 94 Ti in 187 and 180. Which one did you prefer? I’m about your size and I’m betting similar ability.
    I love the look of this ski. My key question is did the 180 feel livelier and turn noticeably sharper than the 187cm. ?? or same ski same feel ?

    1. Hi Jonathan!
      In talking with Jeff, he notes that the skis were quite similar between the two lengths. The 187 was more stable, and the 180 was more quick, but he tells me that they weren’t noticeably different. Hope that helps!

  2. hey Jeffrey – I am 59 year old, 6’2″ and 170 pounds – fairly fit but some back problems. I see you rode the Atomic Vantage 90 TI at 176cm.
    I was curious about how you did with the length. I am actually thinking of going to that size. I have skiied since 1975 and this would be the shortest skiis I have ever owned if I go that rout. I mostly ski groomers now. What say you?

    1. Hi David,

      I think that the 176 cm ski is probably the right size for you. The 184 cm ski would be too long. Skis have changed a lot since 1975, so I think you’ll be surprised about how stable the ski is in the 176. I don’t think you’ll have any issues getting used to the length. The width might take a little bit of adjustment coming from 1970’s ski technology, but I think you’ll be fine after you figure them out.

  3. Hi jeff,
    I just bought the vantage 90 ti in size 184, i am 185 cm myself and a fairly agressive skiër. I weigh about 83kg
    Do you think I made the right choice, the owner of the store told me the 184 would be better for me, since the ski has a lot of rocker in it.

    1. Hi Stef!
      Just asked Jeff and he said you should be good to go! He would, however, disagree with the rocker assertion. It’s pretty cambered, not in a bad way, but will not affect running length as much as a heavily rockered ski. Have fun!
