Should I get new board and bindings?

My current setup is a Ride Machete 162W, K2 Company bindings in XL.

I just went from Salomon Dialogues in size 12 to Ride Hi-Phys in size 10.5. In addition to shaving off size due to the smaller boot size, the Ride Hi-Phys have a significantly smaller footprint because my Dialogues are 4 years old.

This had led me to reconsider my current setup and if I should get a non-wide board and smaller bindings. I can ride the board fine, but I'm just wondering if I'm not maximizing my edge to edge quickness by staying with a wider board.

I'm considering a 159-160 regular width board and M/L bindings depending on the manufacturer. Your input is appreciated.
