Ok, I was leaning more towards the 155, because I wanted the board to be a tad flexier for buttering around here and there when cruising .

If you think about it a longer board will either be just as easy or easier to butter than a shorter board of the same design\build.

In case you haven't bought your board yet, thought it was a good deal.
