Default Getting into park from an experienced all mountain rider

Ive ridden snowboards for 6 years. I am 6'3" 180 lbs and i have maybe taken 20 park runs in my whole life. Currently I have a Never Summer Legacy-R 163. I want to get a shorter snowboard because I am interested in riding more park. I have some old burton cartels I would put on it. I really am interested in getting a cheap deal or used board so I scouted around ebay and found these.

What do you think of the boards and length would they be a good fit if not what do you suggest?

you should be fine on a 155 for a park board, im 6'5'' 235 and im going down for a 156 for a park board.
I have a friend who rodethat GNU model last year and he loved it.

I don't think I'd go used, just my opinion though.
