Default Which board for <$350? Nitro Misfit/Team, Burton Blunt? (Mid)wide Board for shoes 10?

Hi!

I just bought the Northwave Legend boots and plan to buy the K2 Cinch CTS bindings.

I'm just not yet sure about the actual board, yet.

Currently on my list (name, length, waist):
Nitro Misfit (Wide) 155cm, 24.6cm (26.6cm wide)
Nitro Team (Wide) 155cm, 24.6cm (26.4cm wide)
Burton Blunt Wide 156cm, 25.8cm
K2 Brigade Wide 155cm, 26.2cm
K2 Format Wide 154cm, 26.2cm

Me:
Weight: 160 lbs
Height: 5'9 ft
Shoe size: 10.0
Skill level: Intermediate
Preferred style: 50% all-mountain, 30% park, 15% rails, 5% powder => All Mountain / Freestyle board


Currently I really like the Nitros, preferably the Misfit.
But I am worried about the waist.
For a shoe size of 10 several people said that I need at least 25.0cm, better 25.5cm. So the Nitros seem to be too small.
The Nitro wide boards on the other hand are too wide...
The Blunt seems to be okay, but actually I'd prefer the Nitros.


What do you think? What waist do I need? Can you recommend any other AM/FS board for my size that are around $350?

Thanks a lot!
