Is this board to small for me?

Hey I've been meaning to get a new, smaller snowboard and I've come across this one that I really like, but before I purchase it I want to make sure it will be the right choice. I'm currently on a 2008 burton dominant 159, need something smaller. I'm 155-160lbs, am about
5'9 and I'm in the park half the time. The board I'm looking at is a 2010 Rome Vinyl 152, I am a girl and was riding a men's board before, the rome is a women's board. This board to small? There is also the same board, just a different color in a 155cm. The 152cm is $200 and the 155cm is $230. Originally a $470 board. Or if the board you think isn't right for me...suggestions..?

Rome Vinyl 2010
The 155cm Rome Vinyl.

If you use the Rome for park and keep the Burton for the rest (pow, carving, etc) I'd go 152. If you're gonna have only one board, I'd go 155.

I was thinking about having only one board and selling my burton, but you do make a great point, I will keep that in mind, thanks!

What is your riding level? The Vinyl is a popular board for beginners, but if you've been riding a while, perhaps a nicer board would be a better option...

What about something like the Arbor Cadence or Roxy Eminence? A softer board like the Gnu B-street might also be nice, depending on what kind of park riding you do most. The Rome Lo-fi also gets good reviews.
