I'm 5'11 180 with size US 11 boots and I have an Evil Twin 154.
I've never had any trouble with toe/heel drag and my boots do overhang a fair bit. However if I were to purchase the board again I'd get the 157 without a doubt!
180 lbs is already over the recommended weight range for the 154, and if you're an aggressive rider I think you'll appreciate the little bit extra of everything that the 157 has over the 154. Don't get worked up about the 154 being easier for spins etc, I mean you're 5'11 180 after all.
