I'm in the middle of the 151 weight range, but that just seems a lot longer than anything else I was looking at. Do you think I'm fine going with the 147?
I honestly think you'd be fine on either one. Advanced riders can handle the extra length no problem. Any negatives you'd notice in tight turns would contrast with positives during freeride/carving.

Tough to say, for Vermont and Utah I'd want the extra length. For bombing Blue mountain I'd want the extra length. Only time I'd want a shorter board would be a park board or if I was getting something specifically for tight tree riding.

The weight ranges are just a guide, but I prefer to be in the centre of a range as opposed to either end. Especially if you're trying to get a board to step it up a notch. Also are you a fit 120 or just a small person? lol If you're fit for your weight you could go with a longer board.
