Question Capita Stairmaster 156 vs. Rome Machine 157

At the end of this season, I have a size 12 boot, am 5'9.5", and weigh 135lbs. I'm 14. Interested in doing powder and glades, but mostly on the way to and from the park and pipe. I've narrowed it down to these 2 boards. Any other suggestions are welcome. I was also looking seriously at the Forum Youngblood 155W, the K2 AfterBlack, And the Gnu 11up, but while they seemed good for my interests, they aren't completely optimal. The two listed in the title seemed like the best for me, the rest are more trippin' squares than trippin' balls, if ya know what I mean. I hope you do, cuz I sure as hell don't.
Looking at Rome 390 bindings, not sure about boots, maybe Rome Bodegas.

For your weight...I'd say a stairmaster 149 or 151 (or whatever length is near there). 156 is too long...

Board: Directional
Bindings: Burton Missions 07
Boots: Burton Freestyle 07
