Saw the GNU impossible at a local shop and thought it looked pretty cool.

I'm gonna go pick one up tonight for the hell of it.

I'm 5'8" 160lbs. Intermediate rider that is improving.

The 152cm size chart dictates 120lbs-200+lbs
The 155cm size chart says 130lbs-210+lbs.

Being 160lbs that would land me right in the middle for the 152cm.

Is that the one I should get?

No park. More just groomers and stuff like that. Hitting natural features. Spins off smaller jumps..... Stuff like that.

My $.02, which is probably only worth about $.02, go with the 52. It'll be easier to initiate spins.

Ya I was thinking the same. I just don't trust the kids at the snowboard shop. As most of them love park and always insist on smaller boards it seems like.

155 if you're riding everything you'll appreciate the added stability and float more than a slightly lower swing weight at 160lbs

That. I would lean towards the 155 - that is what I was riding at 155lbs. Swing weight is an overrated aspect and the Impossible is not a playful board at all anyway - you have to ride that sucker hard to have fun with it.
