    Reverse camber and rocker are often used interchangeably, this ski has whatever you want to call it in the tips and tails to aid soft snow performance and turn initiation. You can argue semantics if you want but I stand by my original point. A taller/heavier guy than you @ Blister gave the 184cm version of this ski an "A" for powder performance, if you can't ski pow on it don't blame the ski.

    One more data point:

    5'11", 190lbs: Very happy on 184s mounted on the line.

    I didn't have a whole lot of questions about the size before buying them, and haven't had any second thoughts since. My main points of comparison where the 185cm Enforcer 100 and the 186cm Sick Day 110. Compared with those two skis, the Atris 184 is exactly what you'd expect: it's "easier" than the Enforcer (hair shorter in actual length, deeper tip rocker line, much deeper tail rocker line) and "quicker" than the Sick Day (2cm shorter, narrower, shorter radius).

    Given your description, can't think of a reason you'd want the 178cm, and it didn't sound like you were thinking 189...

    See around 16.30 on the Blister Black Crows podcast. Julien Regnier (the ski designer) discusses the 184 vs 189

    I am very happy with my 184s mounted at -1.5cm. 75kg and a strong skier.

    I'm 6', 170, I've got 189 as more of a powder ski.
    I've got both 184's and 189's and am going to return one. I'm the same size. How do the 189's ski?

    Love the 189, but it's best when charging or skiing softer snow. This year in Aspen was unique and we had all-time snow fall and great coverage. The 189 was great because I was skiing a lot of fresh or leftovers. 184 would be a better choice if I was looking for a single, everyday ski for me, with normal CO snow.

    I think it comes down to where you ski and what you want to get out of it. I'm happy and will be totally fine with the 189, and I'll have slightly skinnier, low-mid 180s ski to compliment it with. If I was skiing consitently deeper or heavier snowpacks (WY/UT or CA/OR/WA) I'd stick with the 189 for sure.

    I'm a little worried with the length in the trees and such but thinking they should swing decently and pivot/smear ok from the reviews i've been checking out

    189 has been good enough for me in tighter spots, they do swing and move well. I'm 6', 170. The extra length is great when you up the speed or push them through shit, as they're capable but not the burliest layup out there.

    The red ones or the free ones. Free bindings tend to slow you down a bit though.
