Hey Folks,

I'm 6 ft/150 lb (62 years) and mostly free ski, looking for a new ski. I was on the fence whether to get 65 or 66 in but decided on 66. I know all skis are different, etc, but I bought a used Strada that was supposed to be 66 in. When it arrived it was actually 67.

The question for the group is whether it's worth the effort to return it and find a true 66 or just learn to ski on this 67? How much difference can an inch make? I skied a couple of passes on the 67 and it felt hard to turn, but how much difference will one inch less make.

Just curious what everyone's opinion is...thanks

Andy

Not really interested in slowing down just to make a ski work, so I'm thinking I will happier with 66.

Thanks for all the input!
