The Powertrack 89 skis pretty darn close to right on. When you bend the ski it really elongates the effective edge. I've only skied on the 179 and I never felt hamstringed by its south of 180cm length (I'm 6', 175lbs).
Mark mentioned the K2's Pinnacle 95. This is the best ski K2 has made….ever. It should be moved to the top of your list. Talk about a ski that skis short! I had a 177cm in my possession, but I had to kick it down to my righthand man. The Pinnacle 95 is one of those rare skis that I'd go to the 190cm length for. I'll be buying either a 179cm Power track or 190-ish Pinnacle 95 in the fall…..I'll look into the flames of the burning west and wait for a decision to come to me. I'll have to decide if I want a ski that is a bit more business minded (Powertrack), or the playful court jester that burns the cheeks with perm-grin.
