I'm 6' and bought the 157. My last board was a 156 Ride Profile that I had for nearly 10 years. I am amazed at how much better the Sherlock feels overall. It seems like I catch way less edge than my old board and I love how the flying v gives it a flexy floaty sort of feel, yet it still feels very stable and responsive. This board does exactly what I want it to do and turns a a dime. I'm very happy with it and I haven't even taken it in the powder yet.
