6"4, 205 lbs & have demo'ed the Coomback, Sidestash & BD Verdict in 188 & 181 at Mammoth, Squaw, Sugarbowl and Bachelor. Honestly, felt the most comfortable w/181cm in trees and narrow areas. The 181cm was especially forgiving in crud and bumpy hardpack. I concur w/Bernard re:knees & 188cm. Really like the Coombacks, but after time on the Sidetrack & Verdict, I'm leaning more towards one of them.
