K2 Slayblade Size

Hi im thinking of buying a new board for this season. I ride a K2 Zeppelin and thinking of buying the new Slayblade.

My Zep is 161 and im going into the park about 50% of my time now and was thinking would it make much of a difference if i went down to a 158 or should i stick to a 161? My hight is 6,1.
