I think it's as much personal preference as anything. I have a 154 blacklist and I weigh 195-200. Most would say it is too small for me, but I love it. I just play around on the hills so I'm not trying to lay trenches with it.

I bought a 161 Raygun for an all mountain board and I hated how long it was. Just didn't feel natural for me, so i bought the 156 and love it. Might me mental as much as anything, but it works good for me.
