Default Buying Freestyle Board- 5 cm difference too big?

I have a never Summer Titan 160. I'm 5'9" and 160 lbs. At first, the Titan was a little big for me but I got used to it and I love the size now. HOwever, after getting better, I Found that I would like to ride more fakie and do more tricks. The titan is a directional board so I would like to buy a NS SL.

My question is for those who have a free ride board and a free style board: Would going from a 160 titan to a 155 SL board be too much? I know that I would have been better suited for a 158 board in the first place, but now that I'm used to a 160 board and I like it, should I just get a 155 SL board instead? I just know that with a freestyle/park board, you want a smaller board. So is going from a 160 cm to a 155 cm too big of a difference? Or is it fine since the 160 is a litle big and I want a nimble board while doing tricks. Or, should I just get the 158 since it's already a size down, and I will like it since I am used to riding a 160 board?

Thanks in advance.

Go with around a 56 or 55 for park. That a good general size for everything.
