pow board sizing advice

Hey everyone,

I have a question about powder specific boards related to sizing. I'm a feather weight (130lbs) and currently ride a 154 Proto everywhere (ridden it in Revy, KH, Whistler, Vail, back home on ice hills, etc.). I'm looking to add a pow boards to take out west to help when it dumps. My question relates to size. I'm not keen to upsize too much over what I currently ride but instead looking at powder specific shapes at the same size to help. However, will that minimize the effect? In short, will a 153 Powder snake or a 154 Charlie Slasher be significantly better in pow than my 154 Proto? Or will I need to upsize to the 156 PS / 158 CS to see significant results?

Thanks!
