I am not a K2 guy ....... but two of my friends ski K2-4's and Merlins in the 188 to 193 range ....... but they are about 200 pounds.

Something in between would be a whole lot more versitile .... like 170/175 but that depends on stiffness and sidecut.

Yuki's got it: 170, 175, maybe 180, but no longer than that.

Something tells me you looking at some old straight ski's at 200 cm. If they are, dont get them there not worth 10 bucks. But i agree with others you would want a 170 to 180 length at 5'11" 140 lbs.

I agree, the 200's must be something from the last century, the 1980's maybe ? Get with the "New" skis, based on your weight you could even go as short as a 175 cm. ski, certainly nothing longer than a 185.

Just as an aside, I just saw my friend Jack. His Merlins are one year and three weeks old. They have TOTALLY LOST CAMBER.

As I said, he is both heavy and agressive but that is absurd. This makes me recall the K2 delamination problems of the 80's.
