If you want them to be nice and playful and something that you can easily throw around with,id get the 179's, im around 510ish and ive got the 179s and their about 4 cm above my head,so depending on what you are gonna be doing mostly, id go with the 179's.And yes k2's run very long and ive measured mine and they are infact 185cm.
I've never seen a more imposing ski than this year's bents in a 189 (They measure more like 195). That's a hell of a lot of ski to deal with.
With that said, you sound like a pretty big guy. If they're mounted somewhat close to center I'm sure they'd be a ton of fun.
