|Nivek||You should be alright with that. Its not the bulkiest boot. 24.8 will be ok for you. Especially if you max your stance.|

|Extremo||At 6' you'll have no problem with the 152 and with a 10.5 boot it has the waist width you're looking for.|

|JrOd||i ride the flow merc 152 which is kinda an all around board. i ride the mountain and hit boxes all day in the park with it. and im also gettin a stairmaster next season and im goin down to 148. i kno how it seems a lot smaller but im 175lbs and about 5'7 so it should work out fine for me.|

I weigh what you do. Get the 148. I know that sounds freakishly tiny but it was magic. I'm a lifty at Breck so they days it dumps and everyone can't get here I still get to ride and that was the only time I DIDN'T like it. Cause at 148 it was pretty much impossible to really ride powder. I could get through it but not in a fun way.
I could press, jump and mob on my 148. If that absolutely scares you and you can't bring yourself to buy that small a board then you'll be fine on the 152. But you'll really be fine on the '48. I still miss it. Even with how much I like my new SubPop.

|jmacphee9||just so you know that stairmaster will not be much softer at all then the agent, they are actually really close in flex..|

Stairmaster size? which ?
ok i have like almost 100% decided to get a stairmaster for next season because im looking to start learning to jib and jump. im not sure which size to get though 148 or 152.
As of now i ride a 156 Rome agent (more of an all mtn. board for me) with ride RX medium bindings, and 10.5 boots
Im just worried i might have toe drag cause ww on the 148 is 24.8 whereas the 152 is 25.2. Is this an issue?
Angles: 15 or 18 Front (i switch sometimes, still deciding)/ -6 back.
Another thing, i dont have to worry about powder ridding really. not much in so-cal mtns.
i want to also be able to ride a little out of the park too.
keep in mind im really light so stiff boards for me are like planks of ply wood.
