TRS or Riders Choice are much better matches for the OP's requirements.

I ride a 158 W and I'm 5' 10" 1/2 175 lb... Methinks that would be to big for you

I'm 5'8 150 with a 9.5 boot. I like riding pretty much a mix of everything. I want something that I can still hit kickers and boxes in the park but still be able to do all mountain and handle ice. I don't see a lot of powder but I still want something that can handle it. I also want to be able to do a small amount of just jibbing/messing around. I'm worried that this might be too long or too stiff for me but I'm not sure. Any opinions?

as you can see if your good enough you can ride anything and still do alot. That being said if you want a lib i would recommend this
Travis Rice Pro – Lib Tech
of course if you want to spend a little less than you could try this
Gnarly State Park Stik 155 | Blak Sheep Snowboards
but it is probably still not as good as a deal as the one on craigslist

philthy If you're only looking to keep one board around for everything, a 160 is not what you're looking for. With your specs on height, weight, and boot size you could go as low in size as you wanted without giving up too much in terms of response. Rocker also allows you to downsize your board size around 3-5 cm, so riding a board of that size would be a little crazy unless you're only looking for a pow board or to just bomb runs. It will not be fun in the park I can tell you that. I would wait on buying it and find something smaller that fits your specs better.

avery I don't really want to have a quiver of boards. I want just 1 board that can handle a little bit of everything.

Nivek That's huge and stiff to be any fun at jibbing in my experience.

If you got a really good deal on it, keep it as a pow stick. Otherwise I'd flip it and get something shorter and a little softer. From Mervin get a TRS. It fits what you're looking to do.
