Question NS heritage ?

So my local shop orderd me a 158 heritage but somehow NS only sent them a 160. I took the 160 because I also bought a EVO at 155. The Heritage is a pretty heavy and just a overall big board at 160. im just wondering if it will be too big of a board for me. I weighed it yesterday with the binds on and it was 12 pounds. Im 5'10 and i weigh 205 so im thinking I should be good I just dont wanna have something thats too heavy and too long. My local shop said if It shouldnt matter but they offerd to get me a 158 at my request so im just asking on here to get a unbiased answer

You should be perfectly fine with the 160

160 is fine, hell if anything I might say it's a bit on the small side. You already have the Evo, so I'm assuming the Heritage will be more of a freeride/powder stick for you. I'm 5'11" 180# and I have a 160 Heritage. My pow stick is a 165 Arbor Element. My Evo is a 158.

I don't get the whole ridiculously small board thing unless you're just all about jibbing or trying to throw tens.

well I live in az man so pow days arent really common unless your hiking the BC for it. I spend most of my days doing park laps because resorts here are small and not to challenging. I took the 155 just to have more fun with it hitting jumps and jibs. its kinds funny how small it is but you can feel the pop in it. I used a skate banana so when i strapped into the evo on my carpet you can feel a huge diffrence in the pop. I plan on being around 185ish come december so I was just worried that the heritage might be to big for me. We do get some pow days here in az but I have trips planned to P.c. and durango/telluride so I picked me up the heritage more for free riding on those trips. Sounds like I should be good though based off of what you guys are saying so i feel relieved haha. cant trust local shops these days they all push burton exclusively

You should be fine. I think people just like to ride smaller boards these days, which I don't really know why.
