Default Size Advice

I'm getting a lib tech TRS and I'm trying to decide what size would be best. I basically ride all mountain with my only park stuff being jumps. I weight 170, I'm trying to decide between the 157 and the 159. My previous boards have all been 159 to 160. I was looking to go a little smaller, but I have the opportunity to get a 159 at a substantial discount (can't get the same deal on a 157). I know it's only 2cm, but this is going to be my go to board for a while so I want to get it right. My concerns with the 157 is how stable it would be when hauling ass, and my concern with the 159 is how maneuverable it would be in trees or just whipping it around in general. I've been okay on 159s in the past, but my last board was a 160 and it sometimes felt like an effort to get it all the way through a turn.
