My Skiing

This boot has been great for a 'dad' skier like me. I came to it from the TLT8 Carbonio and appreciated the progressive flex--no brick wall here. For me they fit better than the TLT. In hindsight, I would have heat molded the liner to get a more resilient lock on the heel/achilles; the lack of a tongue means you have to get that right. Liner is thin, but well made. As it wears out I'm thinking of throwing an intuition in. Straps are fiddly compared to the TLT series, but the upgrade in performance is worth ...
One more question. I'm 5'10" and 160-170lbs. What length would be best for my intended purpose? 168 or 174?
I'm looking for a fitness ski that can carve a clean line and be stable up to 30-35 MPH. Lighter the better so I can get as many laps as possible. How do the Race Pro 77s compare to Zero G 85s? Open to consider other skis as well. Thanks!
Do these have a upf rating? Curious if they’d be any good for volcano skiing.
I applaud the inclusion of a clear lens. Photochromatic lenses have a tend to “freeze” in place at the low temps often found skiing in the early AM and into the PM. Love the nose guard too.
