Atomic Janak Bros Size Question

I think I have finally decided to get the Janak Bros for myself. But now I have the question of what size to get (183 or 193). I can't find any weight info on Atomic's site or really anyone who sells them. So does anyone know what size someone who will weigh about 210 with gear should get? Since they are around 100mm under the foot, I was hoping to go smaller (lighter and hopefully easier to turn (have only attempted to telemark with a splitboard)). I mostly want this for backcountry touring, as I have a splitboard for the days I want to downhill. Please advise, and if the Bros aren't a good ski for me, suggest something different.

Thanks for all the info

The bro's are the twin version of the ski. If you do really ski backwards then, great, but if not maybe think about the 'non-bro' version. Reason I say this is that the twins are softer in the tail, and I believe the construction is laid up, so, heavier than the beta construction. For BC I would think lighter. Plus with the stiffer tail you could go a little shorter and still have a fair amount of power. I'm going with the Janak.

Janak Good

I picked up a pair of Janaks from a mail order place called telemarkdown. I got an older graphic but the same construction as the current Janak for a pretty good price. I really like em. I weigh around 185 with gear and got the 173s- mounted with Dynafits. It's a light set up, tours great, skis great. I had many 20" plus days in the bc last season and they floated fine and skied variable snow good too. I'd recommend them or the bros- the 183s would be fine for you.
