Exclamation Ride Machete sizing help needed

Just starting last season. This will be my first board. Need it to do it all as best as one board can. I weigh 172lbs 5'10. As a relative noob, would I be better off with the 155 or 158?? Thanks for the help!

I think for you the 155 would be the perfect size to start at.

If you mean shorter is better for beginning, then yes.

Again, thanks. That's where I was leaning but the guy at the shop was pushing the 158. Said better at spead on the all mountain thing. I have skied for years including some long GS boards and know how to put power into a ski to turn a long stiff board but this is a whole new game and I had the bruises to show for it. Don't want to catch an edge too often and want to be able to turn the thing!

It might just be me, but it annoys the hell out of me when people push longer decks on beginners. The 155 will last you forever anyway. You won't need to change decks just to go up 3cm.
