5'11" 190lbs

Slalom - 165 Nordica Doberman SL WC
GS - 191 Nordica Doberman GS WC
All Mountain - 178 Nordica Hot Rod Jet Fuel
Some pow - 185 Nordica Enforcer
Big Mountain - 193 Nordica Blower

It depends upon the terrain, the snow, your aggressiveness and to a degree personal preference. Short skis turn well, long skis have a bit more stability. I love my slaloms, I love my big mountain skis, just depends on the day.

6'4" and 95 kilos and I am on 170 length Volkl EXP's

They have helped me to improve my style/edging etc. Next pair may be a little wider and perhaps a tad longer but who knows

5'9", 175 lbs., east coast skier

current quiver:
165 cm Dynastar Omecarve 10
173 cm Blizzard Titan 8.2 (new to me this season)
174 cm Rossi 9X (new to me this season)
175 cm Fischer BigStix 7.6

Could be the Blizzard's are too short for intended use - east coast crud / deep ski, and occasional trips west. But the BigStix don't feel quite as stable as I'd like sometimes so maybe the Blizzard's will take their place; thanks to a good swap deal I figured it's worth a try.

General comment: as a medium size skier I'm generally happy with the middle length ski in whatever range is offered in a given ski. Only exception was race stock slalom - short end of range is just fine. (I recall 156 cm Volk race stock as more fun than my current 165 cm Dynastars.)
