Since this thread is primarily about profiles lets start there
All 3 of these boards (Merc, Custom V and Skate Banana) use essentially the same profile (a mild version of Camber Rocker Camber) when all of the marketing fluff is stripped away. That is certainly suitable for you, but are you looking for something new feeling?
On your harder snow the difference between Sintered and Extruded will not be a very noticeable factor unless you are really interested in maximizing your high end maching.
So...lets figure out what it is about your current board that you want to improve on and suggest from there.
