Coming off my Noodle of a board, Burton Hero, this DC PLY is super responsive, extremely snappy, amazing pop, and I can finally go fast and carve no problem. This board was made for going off booters and going fast, I love it! It's pretty stiff so dont expect steezy presses but if you're more a jump guy/ all mountain guy like myself then you will absolutely love this board!!!! I'm 6ft 2 and have the 156 and the first day I rode it I instantly fell in love, seriously this board is that amazing.

also I'm looking a freestyle board that can also be used for powder, does the Ply match that?
It is close, but your 11 boots should be ok with the 25.2 Waist Width of the DC PLY.... as long as your feet are not continuing to grow.
The DC Ply Snowboard is a great freestyle deck taht has a slightly stiffer flex rating. If you're looking for a more jib/small jump friendly board check out the DC PBJ Snowboard out. The PBJ is a little softer and easier to press. Check it out HERE: http://www.the-house.com/9849dcpbj14zz-dc-snowboards.html
A board needs to be 160cm+ to accommodate your weight and it's waist width should be 25.8cm+.

I'm 6', 175lbs, size 11 boot... I ride a 158 Lamar skylark "Mac" or I think it's similar to reverse cam, which feels a little bit long now... I ride freestyle/ park / all-mountain in the SW US... I'm an intermediate level rider.. I'm really torn between 156 & 159... I want to size down for agility & freestyle autonomy... But I don't want to sacrifice to much control on the downhill either... Will the 156 really create that much of a problem for me in that regard?? Thanks!!
The 3cm overall length and 2mm effective edge difference will go unnoticed. You'll be fine with the 156cm DC Ply Snowboard.
Although this Ply does not have the most expansive waist widths, so if your feet are larger than 11.5 be careful.
The 2014 147cm DC Ply Snowboard only comes with a pink base. If you really want a manly deck check out the 2013 147.5cm DC Ply Snowboard, it has a huge cheese burger on it. There's nothing more manly than a cheese burger, well maybe a beard or something.

The 150cm DC Ply Snowboard would fit you best and you can grow into it over the next few season too!
Awesome pick - the Ply rocks!
Yes a pair of L/XL flow bindings would fit on a 159cm DC Ply Snowboard.
Boards between 142cm-147cm in length will accommodate your weight better than boards between 149cm-152cm in length.
Two DC boards come to mind that would be great for you, the 143cm DC Biddy (Women's) and the 144cm DC PBJ (Boys). Both have the same flex rating, but will have a different feel because of their profile shapes.
The Biddy will have more of a surfy feel because of the Anti-Camber profile, and the PBJ will have more of a precise feel because of the Traditional Camber Profile. Check them both out:

144cm DC PBJ Snowboard: http://www.the-house.com/9844dcpbj14zz-dc-snowboards.html
Depending on where you live it will take 3-8 business days.
Most of you answer is personal preference, however, the 159 is wide enough to accommodate your boot (so long as you d o not grow into a 12), and it fits your weight and height requirements. Personally, If I were getting this board I would indeed get the 159.
You will need a 159cm DC Ply snowboard.
You fit better within the weight range of the 150cm DC Ply Snowboard.
If you had to choose between the DC Ply Snowboard and the DC PBJ Snowboard I'd choose the 157cm DC PBJ Snowboard.
The 159cm DC PBJ Wide would be a better fit with your size 12 boots because it has a 26.3mm waist width.
