Default Burton Blunt vs K2 Raygun vs Ride Manic vs Batillion Funn Kink

Im new to snowboarding, i have a few times now and done lessions. I am looking to get my own kit now after using rentals.

I am 5 8" height, weigh 77kgs (170lbs)

I am looking for a Freestyle / All Mountain bike, something that will do a bit of everything, but with a bit of give for a beginner and i am not really wanting to do high speed stuff. I am also wanting a board that I wont out skill qiuckly (this is what i have heard out the Burton Clash).

I was recently leaning towards a Burton Blunt 155 board, think it would be nice and soft to learn on, but the 155 puts me right on the limit with my weight, i also read that this board doesnt perform to well outside the Park.

I am now leaning towards a K2 Raygun, being a bit more of a "do it all" board, i also like the idea of the twin shape. However i cant get a 156 board only the 159 and im a bit worried this might be a bit big for me?

The other 2 boards were suggestions from the sales person, the Manic was a 155 and Kink 156, though the sales person reckoned i was probably better suited for a larger board 158 or 159. I am thinking i might get better control with the shorter 155 board, though i am not sure.

I have no idea what the sizes of rental boards were

You will most likely love a 156 Raygun. It is a seriously well built board good for any level of rider as a one board quiver. Thats what i would pick.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

How would the 156 Raygun compare to the 159? I cant get a 156 (from the shop im getting my kit from and price). Would i notice a difference between the 156 and the 159? Would the 159 be too big or ideal?
