Default New Board Sizing Question/Help Please!

I am 6'1 around 190 pounds and I need a wide board (Size 13 Boot). I am an average snowboarder; I currently have a Burton King that I bought 5 years ago I think it is a 159.

I am looking to upgrade in technology and buy a new board. I am looking at the GNU Carbon Credit Wide 2011 board; I can't decide if I should go with the 156cm or the 159cm? I feel like my Burton King 159 is huge but I could be totally off. I am just looking for a board that I can have more control of without worry of catching an edge. Thoughts/suggestions?

Here are the specs on the boards:

CCS 156 Flex 6 Weight 110-210
CCS 159 Flex 6.5 Weight 130-240

I ride in the northeast but will be taking this board to CO. Thanks!

Banana Tech makes turn initiation a lot easier than camber. Go with the 159.

Thanks for the advice. I'll go with the 159...

A follow up question: Will Burton Mission bindings fit a GNU Carbon Credit Deck?
