keep in mind blunts are a softer board bro, more specified for park/kickers... if you thought a 160 was big you might consider going a bit below that... all what you feel but i'm sure a lot of people will agree with me that the shorter board[not a flippin midget board of course] the more forgiving it'll be in the park, shorter faster cuts;easier,quicker corrections... just a thought, but in the end go whats comfortable with you... don't just jump on somethin someone tells u 2.
side note: i'm 5'9 180 and comfortable on 151's/153's... im looking at a 153blunt for an extra board right now.
being a learning rider i'd imagine the v-rocker and edhes of the blunt will help you avoid those edge snags too though!
freestyles may be a cheap binding, but i actually enjoy my 2011 freestyles over my other bindings.. '10 cartels and union forces. HOWEVER they dont respond the board as sharply as the forces or cartels... but that's more wiggle room you got before you bite it on a rail or a box!
hope my inputs helped you, but then again thats just my personal opinion.
honestly think you'll be very happy with the blunt
