I am 5'0" (153cm) tall and around 144 lb (65Kg)
Boot size 7.5

Level intermediate , snowboarding few days per year

The smaller Burton Custom Flying V (adults) is 148, while the biggest of the Burton Custom Smalls is 145W. Which is not too much difference. I know that i am a little over the specified weight for the custom smalls, but i feel more comfortable with 145 at the same time. Will it compromise the board?

Does the Burton Custom Smalls will work for me ? (instead a Burton Custom flying V). Price difference is huge.

3cms does not sound like much but it is. If you ride mostly groomers and the park. you should be ok going with a smaller board. if you get into any powder or backcountry you may want to size up.
hope this helps.
