Default Can't quite nail it. Advice please Guru's

Hey Guys,

I'm just shy of 6ft and about 95kg.

I'm an intermediate snowboarder, looking to purchase my first soft-ish all-mountain progressive board. (I know I'm asking a lot -.-).

I've tried the

- Bataleon Global Warmer 154
- Bataleon Evil Twin 154

The GW was great fun, easy to press, fun to butter on and throw about, but I'm not sure if for my weight is a little to flexy for my to be able to use it on most conditions on the mountain. Would a 157 make it a little more stable on choppy conditions?

The Evil Twin was good stability, but way to stiff for my liking.

I've seen the Bataleon Whatever, is this an in the middle alternative?

A few boards that have taken a liking too are (I'm open to all suggestions and experiences so please suggest boards that you think might be fitting!),

Burton Superhero
Bataleon Whatever
Nitro Rook
K2 Raygun

I suppose I'm looking for an all rounder that is a little on the softer side so I can play around on the mountain.

Also length suggestions would be great, I think between 156-158 is a good suit for my.

Thanks for your help guys!
