Default Powder/Tree/Backcountry board advice

Been lurking for a while and reading advice on powder boards. I, too, am looking for a powder board, but I really want something quick turning and with some decent pop for backcountry hits. I'm willing to sacrifice a little float and stability for the later. I'm not looking for a point-and-shoot powder board for charging straight down. I like to have fun in the trees and get air off the beaten path.

These are the current boards I'm looking at:
  • Prior Khyber
  • Yes Pick Your Line
  • Lib Tech La Nina MC

Current leader is the La Nina, but I haven't been able to find too many reviews of the Khyber. Any advice?

Edit: I'm 5'8" and weigh 160-163 with resort gear, make that 170-175 for a backcountry day. Any sizing advice would be great to.
