Sorry, only skied the GSR IQ, but have skied prior versions of the Racetiger, but that ski has changed a bit since it was the P60 GC.
The GSR IQ is one of my favorite race carvers: very versatile groomer ski, no speed limit, fun, and playful. Others I like: Fischer Progressor 9+ in a longer length and the Elan GSX Waveflex Fusion, although I think the Elan is the beefiest, the 9+ the most versatile, and the GSR IQ somewhere in between.
I (6'3" 210 lbs) have skied/raced the Volkl GS titanium. Very fun ski. Great edge grip. Very easy ski to ski fast. I'm faster on the Fischer RC though.
I only brought my Slalom ski's to the hill this day so I demo'd a pair of 09 GS titanium in a 180cm. Myself and Heather where on Volkl 180's.
My Fiance(Heather) owns the 09 volkl gs titanium ski in a 180 5'5" 125lbs. She use's it as her race ski for GS. She's very fast on it. She says its her favorite GS ski to date. She has also owned a nordica Doberman WC 176cm, Fischer RC 170cm.
I have never skied the GSR, but have skied the first generation progressor. To me it was a very soft ski, I have a Fischer WC RC that I love to free ski on. I also have the Blizzard WC GS in a 182cm that I used to race around here. If the GSR is anything like the Blizzard WC then I would go that way.
Either the 180 or the 185. Depends what your going to do with it.
Can't go wrong with the 180, a few people in our beer league run that ski. All of them are 180's.
I would get that ski in the 185cm but i'm also 7inches and 55lbs bigger than you.
If you don't mind what are you paying for it?
