Neversummer Heritage size ?
 
I found some really good deals on some Neversummers ($3-325) and I was wondering what size would work best for me. I am 6 foot 160lbs and my current quiver consists of a 153,156,and a 159. The 153 is a great for trees and park but sucks at everything else. The 156 is about perfect and the 159 maybe a little long which is great for powder days. I've heard though that the heritage feels shorter because its so nimble. I am torn between the 156 and the 159. I would get the 156 normally but I don't want it to feel to short or unstable at higher speeds. I'm also worried that if I got the 159 it wouldn't turn like I need it too in the trees. O yeh riding style... I ride it all but mostly trees and bombing groomers. I know most people will probably say if I like the trees to get the 156 but will it also be rideable doing 30-50mph ?

To be honest, you won't really feel the difference that much. It's really responsive so you could get the 159 and not have any problems, but I would lean towards the 156.
