I'm 5'9"ish and I use a senior stick cut down an inch or two but I'm fine with not cutting it either. It's all personal preference though. Willie Mitchell is 6'3" and uses max allowed in NHL (63"). Since you're D you may prefer a little longer stick to allow yourself a bit more reach to poke check. Don't forget to factor in the lie and flex, intermediate sticks have a lower flex and are shorter. If you prefer regular flex and find that senior is too long you could get a mid flex senior and cut it.

But as I said, at the end of the day pretty much any hockey equipment boils down to personal preference.
