dont follow a rule of thumb. Its not that simple. Its really about a ski's felt running length (rockered ski's in powder still make contact) with where you are skiing (open bowls vs tight trees) and your ability to a degree. All rockered profiles are not alike! I am 6' 170 and ski the 185 Patron in trees and think it ski's rather short; but plenty stable and fun. I also skied and like the Soul7 in 180, Sali Q105 in 181 and others in the mid to upper 180's. I had no issues skiing the Head REV105 in a 181.
