K2 Raygun vs Ride Machete

Hi everyone, I know this might be annoying that people keep asking for opinion but I really need some advice right now...

I'm 5"6 and weight 145. I start riding around 3 years and starting doing some blacks and was looking for a board that can stay with me for the next two years. I mainly do groom runs.
Right now I got two really sweet deals: a 156&153 2013 Raygun for $215 and a 152 2014 Machete for $278.

I had done tons of research and heard a lot of great stuff about these two boards and both deals are great. I am kind of worried that 156 will be too long for me...

Please let me know what you guys think!! Rayrun? or Machete?

Raygun is that one board that is often recommended by BA & Nivek, that says a lot from two guys who's practically job it is to tests boards.

Both are good choices depending on your riding style. The raygun is more allmountain/freeride while the machete is more all mountain/freestyle oriented. I have a machete and love it with the poprods it boosts like no other but if you aren't into jumps etc the raygun may be a better choice. The machete also has a sintered base while the raygun is extruded.
