You have to keep in mind that my choices in skis reflect a relationship with a ski manufacturer AND a love of the way narrow-waisted skis perform on hard snow. My array of in-resort skis for this coming season, along with my estimated on-snow percentage of time on each will be:

177cm SS Magnum - 55%
187cm Mojo 94 - 25%
191cm SuperMojo 105 - 10%
165cm iSL RD - 3%
180cm WorldCup iSpeed - 3%
203cm iSG RD - 3%
188cm iGS RD - 1%

Overkill?

Fer sure!
I think this is a perfectly respectable quiver of skis - nothing excessive about it at all.

Stockli Rotors 76mm/ 169cm - most of the time teaching
Stockli DP Pro 94mm/ 193 cm - most days off, combination powder/ hard snow/ ski fast ski
Voile Insane 108mm/ 185cm - back country/ skinning/ sled accessed skiing - Dynafit set up
Prior Overlord 113mm/183cm - deep powder & trees

Thinking of going to:
SS Magnum 71mm/ 170cm - teaching & training ski (level III)
iM82 82mm/ 177cm - most of the time around Whistler ski ie days off
iGS RD 188cm - Masters/ Beer Cup GS racing

as the shop I refer to/ helps me out a bit stocks Head and not Stockli. I love Stockli but there seems little point if one cannot refer students/ customers to them.

I am 6'3" and 220 lbs, pretty strong and like skiing fast - anyone else is the 'tall and dense' category that has skied the Heads who has 2p to offer?

Not sure on the length really should I go to 177cm in the SS Magnum and 183cm in the iM82?

I weight about 25# less than you and those are the lengths I ski in each of those skis. I think weight matters more than height. I'd go with the longest ones in each model if I were you. Neither skis especially "long" for its length.
