K2 WWW rocker

Hey, Im looking to get some sort of rocker/flatbase. Am primarily looking at the K2 WWW rocker. Ive read tons of reviews on it and sounded all around pretty good. Alot have said it to be too soft for anything outside the park (groomers, light carving). Was wondering if I stay around my regular board length (instead of dropping the 5cm in length) would it help with stability and make it more stiff? Im 6ft 185lbs size 12 boot. Ive been riding a 157, and was looking at the 155 and 158.. Thanks

For a fun-around park board the 155 will be good. Its a solid deck.

Theres a deal for a used 158 that is tuggin at me. Would it feel too big with the extra long effective edge to throw around in the park? Would like it to somewhat handle outside the park also..

I think the 55 is better suited for that board, but the 58 is absolutely doable. The "extra" edge doesn't make the board feel any bigger except that you feel like you have the edge control of something bigger. It will flex and spin and butter like a 158.
