K2 Slayblade 153 too short?
Just getting opinions on whether a K2 Slayblade 153 would be too short a board for all-mountain riding (groomers and a little park jumps). I'm 5'6", 160lbs, with size 8 boots. According to K2, the weight range is <160lbs for that board. As I'm at the upper limit of the board, I would think that the board would ride a little softer than intended (which might be a good thing since the board is considered pretty stiff).
The next size up (156) has a weight range from 130-210 (which is identical to the 158 model as well so I figure they have the same flex).
Also does the K2 Flatline tech (0 camber) allow you to downsize?
Any opinions on the board and sizing recommendations would be appreciated.
