M:EX sizing - who are the 185's for?

I'll even go as far as to say that the Atomic sizing chart may be a little bit too restrictive (kinda like when your local ski shop sets your bindings to 4 to avoid being sued when you don't release). I think a 175 might not be enough ski for me (in terms of sacrificing stability and float). Certainly you guys who are pushing 250 - 260 pounds should entertain the thought of 185s. (If you're not big enough to handle the longest board, then who is? ... or why would Atomic even make a ski that large?).
Thanks. This forum has been a lot of help.
