Lib Tech Skate Banana Help!!!

Guys I'm looking at maybe getting a 159 second hand. I want to make sure its NOT the 159w. So basically just tell me does it say 159w on the board if it is? Retarded question prob but I want to get caught out. (Only have size 9s!)
Easily solved if you have one and can have a look at it for me

between the bindings on mine there is an embedded metal emblem, blue and silver that says 156, i considered the wide and it said 156W on it. Its about the size of a quarter. Cant miss it.

Suspected as much but just wanted to make sure. Thats brilliant thanks. Have another q actually. On the lib tech website they reccomend the 159 for +120 lbs riders (and 156 for 100+lbs). Everything I've read in forums is pushing downsizing your normal normal board size for this particular board. Anyone know what thats about?

I'm 5'10" and 160lbs so would have thought I'd go for 156 but I'm getting a great deal on a 159 so thinking it'll prob do me.

As mentioned the size is on the board.

Yeah a 159 is too big for you. The 156 is more suited or possibly even a little smaller depending on what kind of riding you do.
