Default Capita Black Snowboard of Death advice!

sorry for another 'which size shoudl i get' thread but i really want to hear you guys opinion on this, esp. those who have ridden the 2011 BSOD w/freeride FK.

im 5'9", 165lbs, size 10 boot

very interested in the 2011 capita BSOD for my charging board...looking to use this for speed and charging down runs, some pow and jumps as well. not really interested in using this in the park at all or doing jibs/butters and stuff as it isnt even that kind of board in the first place.

my question is, do i get the 156, or the 159?

i traditionally would ride somewhere in the 156-158 range, so the 156 falls in this range. but i dont want this board to be too loose/playful and i want that stability for charging runs. but at the same time, 159 is longer than im used to and i dont want the length to get in the way of maneuverability. im thinking on the 159 tho, the rocker in the tip and tail will allow for good maneuverability.

can anyone chime in on their thoughts here? if you were me, would you go 156, or 159?

thanks!
