Jones Hovercraft -156 or 160

I have decided I need a Hovercraft this year and see it now comes in a 160 as well as the 156. I weigh in at about 85kg (185lbs) 6' and am used to a longer board. I have been using a Nitro Team GW 162 as my all mountain board, and a Lib Tech TRS 157 for groomers.
Everything I read says that the 156 Hovercraft rides like a 170, and if this is really the case the added manoeuvrability of the smaller size makes this an awesome package. I am just slightly worried that the 156 might be a little short on thge bigger stuff. On the flipside if I go for a 160, I would lose the benefit of the 156 in the tight stuff for a bit more float. In all honesty if I was convinced that the 156 would float well enough for me it would be fairly easy.
Anyone any ideas?
