I'd go for the 157.5. Great thing about BTX is you can size down. I'm 6'3" 215lbs and rode a 158 reverse camber board in over 1 foot of powder and was just fine.

thanks for the help. I just picked up the board last night and plan on taking it out this weekend since NY is getting 6-8" of snow!

Hey, any suggestions on how wide i should mount my binding?

Start with the default holes and go from there.

Rode my riders choice btx today for the first time a few hours ago. I was afraid coming off the lift for the first time because of reports that btx can be squirrely. I had absolutely no problems and it was a blast to ride. Felt super responsive and handled well in powder and packed snow.

Absolutely go with the 161.5 for your height/weight, if you ride all over. If you just sit in the park all day, then go with the shorter one.
