Your recent review (and Dawgcatching's of course) me considering the Motive 84s as my everyday EC ski. I was wondering what length you bought, as I'm the same height, but a little lighter. I've found a good deal on the Motive 84s but having not demo'd them, I'm not sure.
6', 175lbs and I ski the 175cm 84. It will be just right unless you're always going mach schnellie.
