Lib Tech TRS...Which size for me?

No trades or refunds, I got to get this from the first time.

I basicly want to know whether I could ride this particular board in a slightly shorter lenght, or if I'll be happier if I got the longer version

I'll go into the details as to WHY I came up with the TRS as my next board if you guys want me to, but in short: The raving reviews, the weird hybrid profile, and the fancy technology convinced me it'd make a good all mountain board for an intermediate rider like myself.

I'm having a bit of a first world problem deciding which lenght would work best for my style though. I try not to let the graphics or price influence me too much, cause imo the 154 Stealth looks a lot nicer, but I could get a really good deal on a 2012 151 with the meh graphics.

ANYWAY, here's my stats:

5.6, 150lbs, intermediate. Not at all an expert in the park, but I'm still improving pretty fast as far as jumps/jibbing goes. I ride all the pow I can find, anywhere I can find it, but the sad truth is that I mainly ride groomers and (icy) hard pack. So I'd say jibbing/buttering takes up 20prcnt of my time, pow as well, and groomers about 80prcnt.

151 seems like a bad idea, both for deep pow and groomers, but I was hoping the medium stiffness and fancy technology of the TRS C2 BTX could maybe make up for the lack of weight/lenght/stability.

I'm used to 152 boards, and though they always kinda fell short in pow and on speedy hard pack, maybe 154 might be overkill for my limited size/weight. I'm worried it'll feel a bit stiff/heavy and slow in short fast turns. I don't want it to affect my already mediocre jibbing skills:s

I basicly want to know whether I could ride this particular board in a slightly shorter lenght, or if I'll be happier if I got the longer version

What do you guys think? Cheers.
