I'm sure you're gonna get a bunch of answers to your post, but you're the only one that can say for sure. That said, I am 5'11" and usually around 200lbs and I use a Westmark 156 for messing around on. It's not my haul-ass board, but it's a fun ride. If you're looking for a freeride board, the Blacklist isn't the best choice anyway, but I'd go bigger than a 157 at your size. For messing around, I'd think the 157 would be fine. I've never been on a DH2, so I can't comment on that.
