artifact 1985 sizing?

height 5'7"
weight 140-150
style: jib, ground tricks, etc

i'm looking to get an artifact 1985.
i was just wondering how much of a difference there was between a 147 vs a 150 in terms of flex and other characteristics.
i am leaning towards the 147 for the extra flex and control i would theoretically gain.
any input?

I'm 5'7", 135 and i ride a 147 artifact and it's awesome. i'd recommend the 147.

Got the same stats and was looking at artifact rocker as a board to get if there will be some spare cash to have pure fun at country side and tiny Moscow parks.

eastCOASTkills what is you riding style m8t? you pure jib guy or lapping around also meet you interest? Asking 'cause wanna get really flexy-small board to butter, small jumps, boxes (i freaking scared by rails)) and skate-style ride around.

Dude get the 147 (or smaller?!?).
You say you want it for jibs & ground tricks - so basically the smallest you can get.
