The Elan 777 was the ski that I enjoyed probably the most when demoing last spring. But, I was skiing a 176 and I am 150lbs. There just isn't a speed limit on this thing, and nothing deflected it. Enough sidecut to turn when you want it to, but not enough that it is always turning and deflecting (a good analogy would be a GS race stock ski-it turns when input is recieved from the skier, but won't turn otherwise). I can't speak from a heavier-skier standpoint, but I do know that of the few I have sold, customers have all raved about them. It is a great big speed, rough snow ski.
