Looking at either 152 or 154. Any suggestions?
As others have said at least the 154.
I weigh more or less the same as you and find the 157 ideal for all round do it all riding.
Either will be fine.
The 154 will be a little more playful, easier to spin, but a little less stable at speed and a little less float in powder. The 157 will be more stable, better in pow, but slightly less playful.
If you ride at lower to medium speeds and like to play around a lot go with the 154.
If you prefer more speed and ride steeper terrain get the 157.
