I currently ride a 156 wide and am looking to get something more flexible and a little bit shorter. Im size 12 boots and about 160 pounds

Do i go for the 152, 155 or the 153 wide?

Well with size 12 boots you are entering into the world of wide decks. I ride a Rome Machine 154W with a waist width of around 258, and I also have size 12's. So you want to get something around that waist width. And with rocker boards you are able to ride something up to 5cm shorter than your 'reg sized deck'. How much do you weigh? Im 165 and I pretty much max out my Machine, but it is not a reverse cambered deck. So if I were you, and you weigh something like 140-165lbs go with a 153W. Hope this helps brotha
