Shorter as I understand are much more playful but is it too short for POW? Is it much harder to butter with 156 then 153?

I have a GNU 153 and you have about 20lbs on me. If I were you, I'd would get the 156.

I'm still able to butter a 156 board for what it's worth.

Dave's right, it's actually a bit stiffer than I thought it was going to be, but it's not necessarily a bad thing since you can take it all over the place and still have enough to fuck around. It almost MADE me pop into presses to get the desired effect.

let me do the conversions here since I'm not fluent in metric

~183 lbs and 5' 9" tall.

I think you'll be fine on the 156. You're a bit outside the suggested weight range for the 153. Check out Leo's portion of the review here, he is about your size.

Just to clarify the CC is not a super playful/buttery board, it's an all mountain board, but the banana rocker does give it a good amount of playfulness, so if you are looking for an affordable board that will do a little bit of everything from park to pow, the CC is not a bad choice.
