Board advice

Last year i bought a flow wx 161, which i love for carving and bombing, but i didn't think i would ever start hitting the parks, fortunately i was wrong... Im looking to get a board mainly for rails/boxes but i also want to start hitting bigger jumps. Looking for something around 300, older models are fine. Also the WX is pretty stiff and im wondering if switching to a softer board will take awhile to get used to.
any advice?

Flow Vervve. I could hit a stair set then send a 50ftr back to back. Very dialed, and good price.

don't know when im getting the next board, but the reviews sounded good for the verve. If i were to purchase one, i was thinking a 157, but noticed that its available in a 158 and 155. Im 5'10", 175 lbs and in the process of slimming down a bit. Should i go with the 158 or 155? and would i notice any toe drag with a size 10 boot on the regular width?

You're good for toe drag. Get the 155.
