Help me decide sizing on a never summer ripsaw

I demo'd a never Summer ripsaw and i have to have one. The question is tho which size i keep going back and forth. I'm 5'8 155. Typically I'm mostly a park rat and ride a 150 to 153. At the demo I rode a 156 and it held an edge better than any board I've ever ridden. I really wish i got to try the 153 ripsaw but i didn't. The problem is I'm not sure of this boards utility so it makes it harder to size it. If i just use it for bombing groomers and big line/pipe i would probably get the 156. If i use it for more of a park/all mountain board i would get the 153. Still trying to figure out the boards place in the quiver. It felt a little awkward on rails and spins but I'm not sure if that was the length or the stiffness causing that? Help me pick Bros!

Buy the 156 and then get a cheap or second hand shorter/softer deck for park.

I've never ridden the ripsaw, but from I know it would be a sick carve master, groomer zoomer, knoll/roller blaster, and side hit destroyer.

Like Phedder said, get another deck for park.

I own the 160X and agree with getting the 156 making the mountain your park & a smaller park rat board.

I am 190 and ride the 156. It is stiff enough to still be firm at my weight if that helps you any
