What size CWB Faction would you recommend for me, 5'11 175lbs, the 138 or 144? Rode an 05 141 Premier last year.

I wouldn't mind trying a smaller board, but do you think the 138 would be too small? I'd rate myself as intermediate-advanced (backrolls, tantrum, spins, raleys, front rolls...)

My roomate just got the 138 Faction and he is 6'0 160. I would say go with the 138. Im 6'1 185 and I just got the Shane 140 and I was considering getting a 138 Covin. Its all personal pref though...good luck!

You could go either way, demo both and see what feels better to you.

Just buy it from a place that has a swap out policy. I'm a little guy 5'7" and 150 and rock the 138, granted I decided to go large after riding 135s for ever. Either way, the board is awesome, I could not be happier!!

I'm like 6'1-6'2 about 160 and I got a 144 just so I don't have to replace my board when I grow. Right now it is a little big but I kind of like it like that.

I am 6'4" and went with a 144. I have ridden a 138 Transcend and it was ok, but I look at the pros and see that they all ride boards that are much longer than you would think, especially given alot of their heights. I have ridden 137's up to 142's over the years. This will be my first 144.
