Advice on what board to go for!


I'm currently on the lookout for a new board, but am a little uncertain on some things, so I thought it could be a good idea to get some input from you guys.

So the simple facts:
Height: 6'2'' (190cm)
Weight: 181 (82kg)
Shoe Size: 11,5

I've been on snowboard for 14 years now and have snowboarding alot every year. I've usually been an all mountain guy, but did some park riding in my younger years. The last year or so I've starting having so much fun in the park again, and I'm there looking for a good park board that's kinda soft and playful. The current board I have is a T.Rice C2 Power Banana 161,5cm. Which is a really awesome board, but to stiff and long for me to play around with in the park. At least compared to the board I had before that was a Rome SDS (don't remember the size of that one though).

So to some questions:
1. What kind of boards do you recommend? (Looking for a mid to soft board to play around with)
2. What size should I go for? (I'm uncertain if a 154 is to short, so it's a little back and forth in my head between a 156 and a 154).

Boards I've been curious about:
- LIB Burtner Box Scratcher
- GNU Street Dragon
- Lobster ParkBaord/Bataleon Evil Twin (Not entirely sure about this one though because of the TBT that people apperantly has a love/hate thing about, and it might make going back and forth between the T.Rice and the parkbaord a bit weird?)

So any input on what kind of board and what sizes I should go for is much appreciated!
