Default Does 4 cm really make a difference? ;)

Im looking at purchasing a new board (probably the Jones Aviator 13/14). I would say i am intermediate-advanced, 6' 4" 80kg (180lb), Burton ion 11, and i love carving and fresh pow, and finding natural features to pop off, however i am looking to progress my freestyle skills next season. Having rented a MAHUSSIVE Burton Baron 168 this season, i know the benefits of sheer size (i.e. edge hold and float). I am leaning toward the 164 Aviator, now here comes the question. Would i benefit sizing down to the 160W for increased freestyle performance, without loosing any noticable edge hold and float in the white stuff?
Cheers
