Skate Banana size?

I know everyone asks this question but ill ask it anyway, what size skate banana should i get? I do about 80% park (both jibs and jumps) and 20% trails. I ride in New England so not much powder. I'm 160 and a little over 5' 9". I'm deciding on either the 156 or the 154.

Question

Hey guys, I'm actually the same dimensions as the original poster (5'10, 160lbs) and I am shopping for a new board to butter and do a little park with this coming season.

I've only been boarding for 2 years, but I'd like to begin learning how to butter and hit a few boxes and small jumps. I've narrowed it down to a few boards, but I'm curious about size as well. I currently use a 157cm board to freeride/carve with. I see you guys all agree that a 154cm would be best for our dimensions for park.

Question: why go so much smaller with a freestyle/park board?

I figured that it would be easier to butter with a longer board? What are the physics behind going shorter? Easier to control and ride switch?

A shorter board is much lighter so it really does make maneuver the board. And im not totally positive but shorter boards (even of the same brand and model) tend to have a softer flex.
