Default Nitro team, nitro team gulwing, K2 Raygun, Burton Custom or something else?

Hi Guys,
I hope you can help me in my search which is now already making me crazy for 2 months

My details
lenght - 1.93 cm
weight - 95kgs
Snowboard experience - 6 years x 1 year
Current snowboard - Flow Merc 2011

I need a wide board as I have size 47

After last holiday I stopped liking the Merc. Too stiff!
My girl likes to cruize and my speeds is much higher so when trying to ''play'' when waiting for her I can't do anything.
So I'm looking for a board that helps me - learn buttering, small jumps and about 20% of the time powder. I think I descripe a normal all mountain board but what on earth to pick!???
Camber, Zero camber or reverse camber.?

I'm now checking:
Nitro Team -
Nitro Team Guilwing -many people do like it but also say it's rather loose and not that flex. The references do look good.
K2 Raygun - goodwood board all mountain 2014..
Burton customs - there is this guy on youtube Ryan Knapton and he is doing rather sick buttering on that board + board got some nice references too. Downside of this board is that I plan to buy Nitro Zero or Pusher bindings and they don't fit on the Burton Custom

Why to buy what board or any other suggestions?

Thanks allot!!

Koen
