Do you think pros have fun when they are training so they can win comps and put food on the table to support their baby momma? Fuck fun its all about the Cash serious people need to eating and eating is not always fun

Think come next SIA your gonna see alot of companies putting out skis in the 190-195 range. Length is pretty trendy these days. That'll last a few years, then I think your gonna see alot of parkskis around the 185-190 range, bout 105 underfoot, and rocker/camber types.
I'm 6'1 and I have been riding 183cm t-hall's this year, but I think skis around 177cm (not shorter) is the best length for me. Well this post wasn't really off-topic but it still was off-topic, U UNDERSTAND!
Damn your tall. But yeah, for obvious reasons I've found that width can make up for the lack of length for stability. Get the longest 100-110 underfoot ski you can find. One of my buds is a giant and he finds that width helps alot.
Actually I think width is all about weight and length is about height. If your short and heavy, a narrow ski will feel less stable side to side due to your low center of gravity. If your tall and light, you more top heavy and length will give you more stability. If your tall and heavy, a wider longer ski is more optimal. No hate intended. That's physics. Now people have preferences and this isn't true for everyone but that's mostly due to their "style" or how they learned to ski.
186 ON3P Filthy Rich for next year. Atomic is also releasing two skis 97 and 101 in the waist, and come in 187 and 191 lengths. Both rockered with camber underneath. I understand your Dilema for park, I'm 6'3", and am skiing on 179 dead anthems. Too short. I feel I don't need anything more than a 184 for park. Next year I'm picking up 182 Punx
6' 5" 195lbs and ski a 183 Click! for park, 189 VCT for a bit of everything and the 195 AK JJ for pow. Would maybe like a park ski in a 185 but other than that I couldn't be happier. And whoever said they would need 200's+ by the time they grow from 5' 10 to 6'4 is ridiculous. The AK is a beast

I believe you. It's my problem too. Of my five uncles, all over 6 feet, most say they were similar to me or skinnier in their earlier twenties. They don't worry, the weight will come. They are correct because now they are all at least 240. They still have chicken legs but overall have filled right out like mad plus have massive guts. In fact, when our metabolism come to a screeching halt, we'll have to watch our bellies.
I'm 6'4" and I've been fine with park skis in the 182-185 range. In the backcountry, I really wish somebody would make a 205 ski, but I'll live with my 189 Hellbents (which actually measure to 196) for now.
I'm pretty sure they are stiffer in the 196, at least they were last year, so they'd be a bit lifeless and burlier in the park. They are a charging ski after all in that length. I'm 6'4" and ride the 185 Opus...they feel short-ish but that's partially because of the near-center mount. Next year I will gladly swap for the 192 or whatever it is.
