Default 6'9" need help selecting board size

I'm looking to buy my first snowboard. I'm 6'9", 245lbs and have size 15 boots.

I've only rented so far and always gotten the biggest board possible.

165 was entirely too small with massive toe drag and it was wobbily once i picked up any speed.

I was able to rent a 169 Ride Yukon and liked it a lot (less drag and more stable)

I'm thinking bout getting a 2010 Yukon but I have no idea if 172 would be too big or just right, or if I should just stick with the 168.

I'm an intermediate rider looking for an all mountain board.

Any help/suggestions is greatly appreciated
