Need Quick Advice - Rome Slash Length

Guys,

I can't decide. I am about to purchase an '08 Rome Slash and I have the choice between a 158 and a 160. I'm 6'2" ans 200 lbs. My last board was Burton twin 153 back in '02. I haven't ridden much in the last couple of years, but I am a good rider and getting back into it. Back in high school I rode every day. Total about 14 years on and off.

So based on my size, I could probably do either. I just can't decide. 160 may be better for all-mountain stuff but would be a big jump from my 153 past.

I live in Michigan so I ride mostly groomers, a little park, but witht he occasional trip out west to pow. What do you guys think? I have researched this to the point where I am going crazy.

Thanks!

Oh, and thanks for the responses to my other posts. I forgot who recommended the Slash to me but it looks like the right board for me!

I'd get the 158 based on the conditions you'll experience most (as well as your intended riding style).

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
