Default Picking a new (mervin) Board

This is my first post so if this is the wrong place please forgive me

For some background I'm from the east coast so I ride ice all day . I've been riding for about 4 years, my first on rentals and the last three years I've been riding a K2 dart that's older than me and i stiff as all hell. This year I've been taking riding a bit more serious so I'm looking to improve my board. I'll be riding about 20% jibs 30% jumps and 50% all mountain cruising and hitting natural features. I'm looking for a fun hybrid all mountain board because I wanna get better everywhere on the mountain but pow isn't really an issue considering we never see it. I'm currently looking at either the lib tech attack banana or gnu metal guru. As far as I'm aware they're nearly identical but the 2014 metal guru has been updated to a sintered base, I've also been told the AB is a tad stiffer. I prefer the graphic on the attack banana but form follows function. I'm also considering a carbon credit as ive been told its an "all mountain board". So what do you guys think I'm open to suggestions?

Also im about 5' 9" and 140lbs would a 152 or 153 be good for me?

Thanks in advance
