Thinking about sizing down...need help

Currently my daily driver is a Never Summer Revolver 160. I have been thinking about getting a lib tech and I have my eye on one, but it is a 156. I am an advanced rider and looking for something to "play" around on at my home hill, which is hard pack/man made ice. I've been eyeballing a Lib Tech Skate Banana 156 with magna traction.

I weigh in at 197 lbs.

I am going too short? Anything I should be thinking about that I am missing here?

Thanks

seriously, your revolver is much better, and the banana is way overpriced for what it is.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

156 wouldnt be too short... if your confident in your riding youll adapt and make it happen... im 200 and riding a 152 noodle all day. Its a fun board for small mountain park stuff. anything too much bigger than 30 footers gets a little sketchy.

maybe hold on to your 160 for those zen cruising days...

Hopefully this was actually helpful instead of another unofficial NS advertisment.

I would be careful sizing down while also going to softer board at the same time. At 175 I went down to a 152 noodle and it was squirrely as shit on the chop and steeps
