Gear Question

I've switched from tele to AT this season...

I've switched from tele to AT this season and am looking for a stiffer ski (I've been skiing the Karhu Jils). I'm wondering if I should get the Joules in a 155 or 165. I demo-ed the 155s and loved them but am a little afraid I might outgrow them. I'm 5'6" and 125 lbs., and I seem to be in that sweet spot between the sizes. Does anyone have suggestions? I'm an advanced skier, but not particularly aggressive, and I had knee surgery last fall.

With the knee surgery, it might be a better idea to go with the smaller size, but if you are willing to be a little more aggressive in your skiing, the 165 might be a better option in the long run as your knee improves and rebuilds.
