Slash brainstorm

Hi all, I've decided to get my first board after 3 seasons. I am going to pick up the slash brainstorm. However, on slash's size chart I fall between both the 157 and 160. I weigh 170lbs without gear and wear a size 10.5 kaiju. I seldom play in the park and mostly ride on groomers. Which board size should I choose? Thanks in advance for all suggestions

160 for more float and cruiserness, 157 if you wanna ride more trees and/or be more nimble.

Thanks for your reply Nivek. If I was just to have one board for now would you recommend the 157. And maybe get a 159-160 in the future for cruising? In the past I was borrowing my brothers 158 Rome reverb.

Yeah if you're looking to build a quiver fairly early than get the 57. If you don't expect to add anything new for 3-4 year's get the 60.

I have same question, 157 or 160? I'm ~180lb without gear, 10.5 boot, 6'1 height. Coming from old 158 camber board from 2010, how much difference do the new camrock profiles make in powder? Looking for something with more float than my 158, but wondering if I could get the best of both worlds with 157 Slash Brainstorm, more float + nimble, playfulness to improve in switch, jumps, trees, moguls?

Thanks!
