Default 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.

If you're planning on doing mostly all mountain and little park, I'd go for a 156.
