The 57 is only going to perform very marginally different in powder. Its still the EXACT same board. Its not like you are comparing a 57 cobra to a 54 proto. Fwiw I weigh about 10lbs more than you and am very happy with my 54 off cliffs in pow whatever.
Also its not a bad powder deck unless you are talking about 4 feet of pacific (Japan/PNW) poo poo, which if you are in, you should obviously get a dedicated pow stick for.
I'd get the 54', don't compromise.
I also want that black one in a 54', fucking sexy board, trying to lay hands on one of this years evos, which will tide me over if I can pull it.
