Exclamation difference in size.

i shred a 153 atomic alibi and love it, im in the park most of the time, or jibbing
and i now have a brand new stepchild simon chamberlain 156.
is there much of a difference in those 2 sizes? and will it take long to get used too?
and what are the pros and cons of the different size?

I don't know what the weight ratings are, but I'm 180 lbs, also 5'8. I was riding a 152, and linking turns was a little hesitant, so I got a 155, and that hasn't been too much of a transition, however that's only based on one day of riding.

The thing I've found with the bigger size is for some reason I can use more of the flexiness of the board, I really don't understand why, it seems it should be opposite (for me at least, I'm not sure if my thinking is exactly logical.)

But really, it's only an inch and a half difference, nothing that's going to be a huge deal.
