depends on the general snow conditions...groomed/hard pack/ice...shorter, longer if lots of pow 6-8"+...but 48-51 is not much difference. If you go longer, perhaps get a bit softer flex.

rome maddies are nice...what my daughter uses, she is 5'4", 125# and rides 144, 148 and 155 depending on the snow and for her skis some 174 fatty twins that are 130mm under foot.
