Rome Agent 156 too big for me?

I need some advice.

I bought the 156 Agent at a store thinking it was a 154, cause that's what the dude told me. I didn't notice the number 156 on the board until I was already on the slopes. I feel real boneheaded for not checking it before buying. Anyway I called them back and the dude tells me 156 should still be okay, but I feel like it's a bit too stiff for how I want to ride (mountain/park 50/50). I'm 140 lbs and 5'8".

On Rome's website the weight range for 154 is from 115 - 170lbs, and the range for 156 is 125 - 185 lbs. I know 2cm is not that great of a difference, but I know they make longer boards stiffer in general and feel I might end up overexerting myself to do what I could pull off more easily.

What do you guys think? Think it's worth a 20% restocking fee ~ $80 to switch from 156 to 154?
