Well the good news is that either way you end up with a great ski. I personally like more ski. Because of the tip and tail rocker the Smash 7 will ski shorter than it actually is, less active edge on snow. If you go with the 170 it will not be overpowering. More ski is more fun...of course I am 6'5" 230lbs...
I usually pick things up quickly and need to know if I should start with a more beginner ski or just learn into these. Thank you.
It really depends on what type of skiing you'll be doing. I am pretty partial to Marker and Salomon Bindings. I also really like Look. All three companies have been making bindings for a long time, the hardware is tough and can be put through the ringer. I am a big guy and put a lot of torque on my gear. In bindings I look for solid construction and metal parts rather than plastic.
I really like the Marker Jesters and Dukes, the Salomon STH, and the Look PX. Check them out here:
the recommended binding to go on the Smash 7 is the Axium 100 B93. yes, the shop can mount the bindings.
