HELP!! snowboard size

Any thoughts on a new setup I'm thinking of. I'm 5'9" 175 with salomon f20 size 9 boots. I currently am riding a 154 jibpan with ride betas. THinking of getting a RIDE LE MACHETE LTD 158 WITH NRC BINDINGS. I can only find the LTD model in this size. Any Thoughts? Is this too Long?

I'm almost your exact measurements. I weigh 175-180lbs with 9.5 boots. 158 is my all-mountain length. 155-156 is my "I want to have fun" length

So if I want to use this for hitting the park, mostly kickers and jumps, but still b able to go all mountain, I should skip the Limited Edition and just go regular with 155?

Not sure if there is a difference between the LTD and regular other than graphics. I'd go with a 155 if the only difference is graphics.

No, actually it's the other way around. Rocker boards allow you to comfortably go up to 3cm shorter while still giving you the float you need in powder. If you want a purely all-mountain board, then a rocker isn't that great unless it has additional tech to compensate. The Machete has plenty of tech to shred all mountain so no need to worry about that with this board. I demoed a 155 Machete and it ripped all mountain. I was super impressed with that board.
