Default torn between two boards

i've narrowed down my search for a new board to the burton custom 156 and ride society 157.
same price, but i still cant decide.
the society does have the slimewalls and is loaded with carbon in the tail, but the custom has the infinity and WFO base.
i've heard good things about both, all from people who have ridden last years models, but not even the workers at the store can help me out with this one.
any ideas?

forgot: im 5'9", 135 lbs, size 9 boot, and freeride. i dont spend to my whole day in the park, but i do use it often

is 156 or 157 a bit too big for you if you often go
into the park? im not trying to be or sound sarcastic
but i always thought at your wieght, you should ride
maybe a 150-154 area? maybe even less. im not 100% sure.

Height isn't nearly as important as weight is for a board. I'd also go with a 152ish if you're looking to be in the park often

I am 5'9" and 125 lbs and I got a 156 for pretty even freeride/freestyle. If you are looking at a mainly park board something in the 153-154 range might suit you better. Just my $0.02.

Are these your only options for certain reasons, or are you open to other options as well?

im open to pretty much anything.
i just picked these too from reviews, experiance, and knowing people who use these.
but it really depends on what the shop has, cause they're doing this huge sale on thursday were u spin a wheel and get at least 10%, up to 40%, off on whatever u buy, and i have those 2 boards on hold for me right now.
