Cool Burton Hero sizing

Hi Everyone,

I've just ordered the Burtin Hero 155, but worry that I should really be on a 158. The thing is I ride a technine split T 157 and want a slightly shorter, lighter, freestyle board to have some fun on, in and around the park. The Burton website says you can downsize 1 to 2cm with this style of board, but I don't know if I can get away with this size, or what the effects of riding it will be for me.

I'm 6ft 2in and 200lbs (athletic and slim - not fat)

Has anyone experienced a similar problem. The sizing thing is sort of annoying.

for your weight if you went with a londer board you can go faster than you would with the shorter on as it is with every person. my buddy is 210 and chose a 158 when the snowboard calculater said he should get like a 162 and he doe sjust fine. so your safe
