Default Burton Hero Sizing Help

I'm looking at getting a burton hero wide, but I cant decide between a 155 or 158. I'm currently riding a 160 Rome Agent Wide, which is my all mountain everything board. The Agent is still a good board but I just wanna try a neg camber board and a softer flexing package. I wanna get a board that is more park focused but still able to hit the small natural features/kickers around the mountain. I'm 6'2" and 175-180 lbs with size 11.5 feet. Thanks in advance for the help

I'm 6' and 190 pounds and I demoed the Hero in a 158 and really liked it. I rode size 12 boots with a wide duck stance on a regular width Hero and didn't have any drag. The Hero was a fun ride with both Mission and Prophecy bindings.

Is your plan to use the hero mainly in the park and your agent as a free ride board? Or will this be your go to board? If your going just park get the 155 (get the wide though they make that and it'd prolly be the best for your size. If its your go to get the 158 you'll still be able to wipe it around. Good luck bro.
