Weight Class by Height

Anyone have a decent chart or study they can link for a "optimal" weight class based on height. I know these would be on average, and not a case by case, but I'm curious what they say. Edit: Or just your thoughts.

Poll Poll: Raw vs gear

Which do you prefer/compete in? Why? I was thinking about just competing in RAW. I feel like the records are more accurate because technology in gear improves year to year. Also it nice to know what I can lift without the assistance of a bench shirt. Thoughts?
