recommend a hard charging freeride board?

hey guys, I'm looking for my next board, hoping to get something at the end of season now for next year.

160lbs 5'10
upper intermediate to advanced rider
size 9 boots

Right now my freeride board is a rossignol krypto but I'm starting to outgrow it. I want something fast and stable where I can straightline chutes, ride fast and cut through chop and crud. I really don't care about riding switch. Would like good float in pow.

I was really set on a jones flagship but some reviews are saying it is not the greatest on moguls, which I do ride a bit of.

Can you guys recommend any other hard charging boards that are super damp and fast, yet easier to turn? The thing I don't like about my krypto is its magnetraction is too aggressive (drags and cuts thru soft snow) and not so easy to initate turns.
