I am seeking input on what size (175 or 180) to get in Fischer Progressor 9+. I am 38yo, 6'3" 255 (typically 240 or so by the time the flakes are flying), athletic former college LB. I am probably level 8 skier. I have seen reviews stating that 175 was plenty for those slightly smaller than me, but didn't know if I needed the 180, which I have read is a lot of ski. I ski fast with pretty good technique, but also ski with my kids and wife who don't ski as fast. Live in the east, but outside of a couple of day trips on small hills, most skiing comes with family trips to CO or UT. I have some fatter skis, and am looking to upgrade the skinny end of the quiver.
Any input on whether I should go up to 180 would be greatly appreciated.
