Default splitboards... Worth it or not?

Hey I have a 153 voile split decision. I am 5’7” and about 130-135 pounds. I have been told that this board is probably too small for me and that is why it sucks for the ride down. I live in Alaska and just started getting into the backcountry scene. This board seems heavy, zero flex and was difficult for me to keep the nose from digging in and I had my stance as far back as possible. I also ride regular. Not the sweetest for carving and maneuvering either. I have the standard voile binding system (disk and plates). I was told that these bindings also add to the crummy snowboard element.Bottom line, are splitboards even worth the money? Yeah maybe they help on the climb (I didn’t think it was that much easier than snowshoeing though) but are they all worse boards for the ride down than a normal board? Or am I just stuck with a board that is the wrong size?
