Default Sizing question

So since I'm looking at trying out a bunch of decks next month, I figured I should get people's opinions on the sizes I should try. Instead of basing it off ht/wt, try to base your idea off my preferences. As I said in my thread on what sticks I should try out, I'm adding a jib/street specific ride to my quiver (most likely RC), with assloads of flex. I don't care much about stability or carvability, that's not what I'm going to use it for. My all-mtn board is 156. So the question is, should I go right down to 148, or try one in the low 150s first? Is it worth my time to be cautious with downsizing? Will 4cm make that big a difference?

it all depends how much you weight and how much non park riding you be doing.. if its only for jibs and small kickers
down sizing 8cm is no problem, if you do hit some groomer time to time, downsize 4-6cm might be better.
one last thing if you do decide its gonna be mainly jib board i wouldnt spend so much money on a jib deck, it does get damaged alot faster then let say your usual board..

Cool. Thanks. In that case, the '48's for me.
