Sizing on a new board.

Im getting a 2009 rome agent at an eastern boarder tent sale. I can get it for like $165. I need advice on what size to get.
Im 15, right under 130lbs about 5'10".
I already have:
A 2008 burton blunt 151
A 2008 burton royale 154 (used to be my brother's so i haven't used it yet)

Im looking for the agent to be an all around board.

Im looking at the 152cm one but am not sure if i want to go for the 149cm just to get a little more of an advantage in the park and cuz the colors on the board match the bindings im gonna get a little better .

Im a intermediate/advanced rider who knows how to handle a board at high speeds but still needs to work on park skills.

Is that 3cm gonna make that mush of a difference? or should i just go with the 152 to be safe?

well the 149 would be good in the park but it wont be good at high speeds on the slope....even a 152 is as good in the park especially if ur hitting kickers, cause it will help with easier landings.. so it just depends on where u will be with it the most park or slopes???

im pretty much 50/50 park/slopes! thats why im having such a hard time deciding.
but i do have the other 2 longer boards so i could always use them if i wanted to go fast...

go with the 149, im 20 pounds heavier then you(lbs.150) and my main ride is a 151 which i can ride fine in both park and the slopes. i even have a 148 which i can take off of 50+ foot jumps and not have a problem landing decent sized spins.
