Dakine Low Roller (or other bag) - need help...

I need some guidance here.
Does anyone own a Dakine "LOW ROLLER" bag in size 157?
I bought a Burton Custom board 156. It actually measures about 154cm and not 156.
Now I'm looking for a good bag, mainly for car travels but I also want to use it when going overseas.
It seems most people recommend spending the extra $40 on a wheelie bag.

I went to a store near home and measured some bag lengths:
The Dakine Tour bag which is exactly like the Low Roller just without wheels measures totally different to it:
Dakine Low Roller 165 - is about 175 cm in length.
Dakine Tour 165 - is 165cm in length.
Burton Wheelei Gig bag 166 - is 166 in length.

So I am totally confused - They didn't have the Low Roller 157, which is the one I want to buy.
If it is like the 165 - so I can gather that the Low Roller 157 is probably 165cm or so in length, where as the tour 157 will probably be 157 exactly in length.

Does anyone here own either a "Dakine Tour 157" or a "Dakine Low Roller 157"? can you please measure the length for me (inches is OK too).

One more question regarding the Low Roller - are those wheels any good? It seems to

Don't have knowledge on Dakine bags, but if you're board is a 156 I'd suggest you get something longer than a 157. The extra length of the bag will be very beneficial to you when you travel overseas since you will be able to stuff all your gear,etc. into one bag. My friend has the Burton Wheelie GIg bag in the 166, and can stuff his board and all his gear (jacket, gloves, helmet, boots, etc.) in it and then load it up with all his other crap like clothes,etc.

I uderstand what you are saying, the thing is that the Dakine 165 wheelie bag is in actual fact loger then 165, its around 175cm.
So if the 157 is also longer the I am assuming its around 165. This is the reason I'm want to get an answer from someone that can measure the 157 bag to see its real size.

Ah My bad I misunderstood what you were saying. Maybe you can email Dakine and ask them about your dilemma and their bag lengths..
