Default Burton Nug.. smaller the better??

Hey guys,

Just picked up a Burton Nug Directional in size 144. I can't wait to try out this board this weekend at whistler, and I will def be writing up a review. On to my question. I had my choice of a 144 or a 148. I understand that you should ride this board 8-10cm smaller. I currently ride a 156 Custom on Burton triad bindings. My size is 5'9 170lbs. Which is at the very border of the size chart for this board.

I don't spend too much time in the park... I've read and watched all the reviews about how its a good board for pow (Dave Downing clip def persuaded me a little), but I decreased 12cm from my usual board size.

Anyone have any experience all-mountain with this board (esp. in powder), and do you think I should have gone for the 148?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
