This! I found my own sweet spot length wise exactly there and I'm only 5'9" by now.Yes, a 188cm MFree 99 that was 2150g with a 20m radius would be bought instantly too!
I’m 6’2”/175 and skied the 2 MFree 108 lengths back to back over a year ago in Alta. I noticed a big difference between the 182cm and 192cm MFree 108 in stability/power with the 182cm version far more playful/surfy and the 192cm version more of a playful charger.This!

An M Free in a length right in between the 182 and 192 would do the trick. The folks at TGR reviewed and debated the M Free extensively in the Dynastar thread and consensus there seems to be that only the 108 in the 192 length really excels whereas at 99 underfoot the M Pro is currently the better ski. They also agreed that they ski short, probably due to the extended rocker on both ends.
Dynastar seems to have stiffened up the big length over the shorter ones, can anyone confirm?
I had a day on the 182s and decided the 192s would be a better call for me, so I pulled the trigger on a pair. The 182s were a ton of fun on the smaller local hill but I felt like the 192s would be a bit happier at Whistler, where I normally ski. Also, sounds like the 192s are only 8 cm longer than the 182s in tip to tail length, which is good.I’m 6’2”/175 and skied the 2 MFree 108 lengths back to back over a year ago in Alta.

Same thing with their Menace 98 where the longest 187cm length was much heavier and more of a charger vs the 181cm version.
Was going to buy a 192cm MFree 108 this Spring but decided to try the 2021 184cm Candide 3.0 and it honestly reminds me of the 192cm MFree 108 in a more friendly length for the tight moguls and trees I enjoy. Doesn’t ski like it’s 112mm width at all and carves insanely well.
If you’re a traditional skier, the 186cm MPro 99 is going to be more stable, damp and have better edge grip vs the 185cm MFree 99. MFree 99 looks like a riot in the trees and bumps if you’re a lighter or more playful skier though. Lots of rocker on any of these skis so they all ski shorter.
The 192cm rec mount is actually about .5cm back further from center vs the 182cm rec mount, so I would go plus 1cm for your size on the 192cm. Would be a hair more playful but still could drive the ski.I had the 182s mounted on the recommended line and I thought they felt great there. Should I mount the 192s on the line as well? I come from a race background and like to drive the tips, but the skis will spend a good amount of time in the trees, so I still want the 192s to feel loose, tempting me to mount them a bit forward.
I've a pretty high tolerance for graphics and would have no shame about buying a ski with uzi clown vomit at the right price but what is wrong with the dynastar and rossi graphic artists - marble doesn't have the classy impact they think, it's just 50 shades of meh.Love the graphic !!!!!**
