I ride pretty much all mountain and like to bomb down the hill hitting natural jumps and what not. I'm not a big park guy.

So would a 158 be suitable? Or should I go to a 155?
I'm 5'9 and 150.. I rode a 155 SL last year and it never felt too big for me. At your weight and riding style I would get the 158.

With the RC tech the SL will be easier to maneuver than your Custom (camber).
