Need Board Help

Hey Snowboarders,

Need some board advice... a little background info...Been snowboarding for the past 3 or 4 years. First and only board was a Burton Deuce 155 with Burton Cartel bindings. It was a good board to learn on and has definitely helped me progress my skills but now I feel is the limiting factor now that I actually somewhat know about snowboarding now. I'm 5'6" 130lbs and I'm starting to want to learn to ride the park. Jibs and kickers and natural terrain features for now. Been going through the glades since the last season. Anywho I'm looking for a new board and I actually did 2 demo days this season and rode a bunch of boards...perhaps you guys can steer me in the right direction...
What I've ridden so far this season and quick notes:
Burton Nug 46 - I liked that it was really soft and easy to press but hated the fact that it couldn't hold an edge for me
Saloman Villain - Didn't really like for some reason felt awkward
Burton Restricted Nug - This is the cambered version...the 2nd favorite of mine out of all that I rode
Burton Hate - not interested
Capita Horrorscope fk 149 - My first choice but I don't know if it will do well on the whole mountain
Burton Custom - probably tied for 2nd with the restricted nug
Lib Tech Skate Banana w/ cartel bindings - I believe this was the original one...actually a buddy of mines...liked it but it felt on the looser side

At first since I have the deuce I was thinking just get a park geared board but I'm not sure...feel like I want to get rid of the deuce at some point...any help would be greatly appreciated...feel free to give other suggestions

BTW I ride on the ice coast...mostly mt snow or tri state
