Default Machete 158 or 160

I'm ready to pull the trigger on Machete but I'm not sure what size to get. I'm 6'0", 170-175 lbs (without gear on). I live in Utah so there is definitely potential for powder. I'm not a big park guy, more of a groomer and powder chaser who enjoys hitting kickers and rollers. I currently ride a Burton 162 Super Model and looking to switch to a rocker. I've heard you can go down in size when riding a reverse camber board, I'm just not sure how much smaller to go. I'm going to buy either the Machete 158 or 160. What do you think?

Default one response?

I know there are some very knowledgeable people on this board and I'd rally appreciate some more opinions. I realize 2 centimeters is a minor difference, but when you're buying a new board is good to get what best fits your needs. Thanks.

Im bout your size too. Just a lil bit lighter, with size 11 boots. I plan on getting the 158. Im also coiming from 161 NS Lagacy which I think was a bit to big for me. Hope this help.
