Birdman 165, La Nina 164, or Brando by Lando 162 for Mammoth pow days!?!?!

Stoked on all of the good information on this forum I've been reading reviews and threads about these boards and I'm pulling the trigger on one asap so looking for any and all input…

So I had just spent an hour typing a long description of what I'm looking for and what I'm riding etc…. then hit post and I wasn't logged in. So maybe that was a sign that I typed too much. Here goes again... Looking for a resort pow board for Mammoth. I'm 36, been riding for 20 years this year.. 5'11" 175-180 size 10.5 boots, currently riding a 2013 Jamie Lynn C2BTX with Now IPO's and love it but just want something a little easier/more user friendly/playful to run fast through the trees and down the chutes. Then when it gets chunky later in the day something that will blast through or over it without blinking. I've been leaning towards the Birdman because people that have ridden them seem to love them, I like the horsepower construction, and option of up to 4" setback but all of these look good in their own way. Also wondering if I'm looking at the correct size Birdman or if I should be considering the 170 since the additional length seems to just be in the nose.

This board will be primarily for inbound resort pow riding, and will be added to my quiver of the 160 Jamie Lynn I mentioned above and a 164 Jones Solution split.

Looking for input from those that have ridden any of these and in what type of conditions although I'm not closed minded so if theres one that I'm missing please share your opinion.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to provide your input, I appreciate it.
