Default What size burton barracuda? Help!

I'm considering buying a Burton Barracuda snowboard but don't know what size to get. I'm between 6 foot and 6 foot 1 inch and weigh 190-195 pounds. I currently ride a Burton Custom X that's about 5 years old and that might be a little small for my height and weight.

I'm using the board for more of a powder board so instantly I thought to go with the 161. But I will be using the board for a lot of powder tree runs and want maneuverability. I know the barracuda has the new nug reduction as well so that pushing me to the 157.

What does everyone recommend? 157 or 161?
