151 or 153

So, I'm buying my 2010 Never Summer Evo-r very soon, and there is a deal for $383 with free shipping, which is pretty damn good. It's in a 151 size though, and I originally was going to get a 153. Do you think there would be a big difference between the two?

- Heres my stats

Height: 5'7
Weight: 145 lbs
Boots: 10/10.5

You should be fine on a 151 with your stats assuming you stay in the park mostly.

I'm close to your stats: 5'7", 140lbs, 9US boots. I ride Evo '09 153cm all-mt (newbie park rider, just started to hit some lesser jumps and boxes) and it's perfect. But if I were you and was going to concentrate on park riding I'll go for 151cm. So it seems like a great deal for you!

I can semi-comfortably ride powder on my 152 SubPop which is much much softer than the Evo and I weigh abouts what you do. You'll be fine riding whatever on the Evo in that size at your weight.

Pull the trigger.

If this is a deal for 151 then go ahead, it should be fine with your weight and hight.

At your weight, the 151 will be great in the park and just as good out of it (except for pow).
