Default Buckwild 156W or 159W

Looking to replace the Blacklist (160) I wrecked recently (which was a great board) and The-House has some Buckwilds left over from last season which I've been looking at. I want to use it as a park board for both jumps and rails and I was hoping someone could give me some insight as to whether or not the 156W would be able to hold up to my size or if I should go with the 159W? I'm 6'2" and weigh around 200 pounds wearing size 12 boots. I'm just worried I might be sacrificing too much stability by dropping down to a 156. Or maybe it'll be alright since it is a wide board. Thoughts?

If you liked the blacklist I dont see any reason not to go with the 159.

Only reason I would size down is to try and progress more in the park as I have a hard time getting anything over a 540 around, but that could very well be because I'm doing it wrong.
