Read through that review, and the posts after it below. Granted, he was riding the CT-X(wide) version, but everything I've read so far says it rides a little longer than the actual length NS gave for it. So a 158 rides like a 160. This is because of a longer effective edge than usual for each size. Both the 157 and 158X(wide) have basically the same length of effective edge as my 160W Sierra Crew of 125.
Heck, post up on AG with everyone else after you read it if you want, I'm sure they'd be more than willing to point you to a good size for your dimensions.
