Burton Fish Sizing

So i am going to be getting a burton fish in the near future and am trying to decide whether to get a 160cm or 156cm. i weigh 185 and have a size 11 boots and i ride a 158cm heritage as my everyday stick. So burton says to downsize a few cm's so that would put me in the 156 range, but i think i may weigh too much for that size of a board, hence why i was looking at the 160cm. I think the 156 would be a really fun board but i think i would be able to flex it too much with my weight, and i think the 160 would still be awesome seeing it rides shorter than its length.

So what size do you think i should be looking at?
