Default Rome Vinyl / Lo Fi Rockers - Questions

Ok, I am about to buy a new deck for my wife. Lil background: she is 5'5", weighs 133 with a size 6.5 boot. She has been "riding" for years but never really progressed so I will put her in the advanced beginner catagory. She has been riding a very old school Ride Dale Rehberg 147. It is a mens flex, HEAVY board and one she hasnt had much fun with. Time for something new and more up her all mountain alley. I have it narrowed down to two boards.

1. Rome Vinyl Rocker either 145 or 148
2. Rome Lo Fi Rocker either 146 or 149 (leaning more toward this one).

She is at the top end of the "recommended" rider weight for the 146 on the Lo Fi. I feel the 149 might be a bit much for her. Would rather get her the 146 but I need some input from the community.

What I would like to know...have any of you ridden either board? Any ridden both? Differences? Any recommendations on which direction I should lean for sizing?

Thanks in advance.
