There are some great deals on these skis now and have spoken to both sellers and Atomic directly. According to Atomic based on my metron scale I should be on 155's. The seller recommended 165's. I am a solid intermediate and currently on Atomic R:10 170's and was looking for something a little wider, more all around. My son is a rider and i would like to venture off trail more with him in the trees and powder. I also took a bad spill and tore my ACL in 2005 and have slowed down a bit. I am 5'10'' and 190lbs. According to the very nice people at Atomic, the M:EX skis very big and the 155's would ski similar to a 170-175 in a non-Metron ski. I have tried the M:EX in 165 here in crappy mashed potato in the midwest and found them a little difficult to turn at times. Probably a combination of conditions and my weak knee. They did however work much better than my R:10's in this crud. I think the 155's would be easier to handle but wonder if I give up a lot going this short. This aspiring to get better skier would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
