How do these boots fit? I have heard they fit both large and small from different places. I'm somewhere between a 10.5 and 11 in street shoes (prob a 10.5 if i wanted them to fit snug) and found that my 27.5 salomon's were running too small and my technica 28.5s were much too large after they packed out.

Any idea what I would be in these?

if it helps, i can't speak from experience, but i am a little taller and heavier (about half an inch or an inch, and a few pounds) than you and am getting the 185s. From everything I have read they will still turn on a dime at that length (good for the trees), and will be more stable on steep terrain (if you're making a few turns) and on the track back to the lift...what length are you on now and how does that feel for you

hey i'm 5'9 ish and about 165 pounds, expert skier (although I didn't get on snow last year), do most of my skiing in the northeast, currently ski on 05/06 179 prophet 100s with duke bindings and am looking to replace these...
I'm currently unsure about what size i should pick for this ski, i'd like it to turn like my 100s as I need a ski that will be nimble in trees...would the 186 be about right? I'm afraid with the rocker the 178 would just ski too short...Also I realize the turning radiuses are much different so i'm curious as to what people think about that as well...I do want something at least as stiff as what i'm skiing on now though...so i've narrowed it down between these, and this years prophet 100s
