Default suggestions on a new all mtn/all mtn freestyle board


My quiver consists of the following:
- 2010 Never Summer SL 151 cm (looking to replace)
- 2009 Burton Custom X 156 cm (recently bought, have not ridden)
- 2010 Rome Artifact Rocker 147 (recently sold)

I demoed a 2013 Burton Custom camber 151 cm today at Stowe and was really surprised at how much stiffer it was than my SL, especially torsionally. Way too stiff as a daily ride for my preference.

Looking for something similar to the SL, but not softer (ie, no proto ct). A little more aggressive is okay. I've read great reviews on the arbor coda, but not sure if it would be good for east coast riding. I also did not like the rocker profile of my rome artifact rocker...too loose - which as i understand is somewhat similar to arbor's rocker profile.

Can anyone recommend a few suggestions?

My riding consists of popping 180s off rollers, trees, moguls, mixed in with some high speed carving. Small kickers and basic 50/50s off rails and boxes in the park. Not much switch riding.
