Question Coming off a T6. Which freestyle board???

Been riding a Burton T6 (159) for 4 years now.
I still want to continue aggressive all mountain riding, but have been incorporating freestyle into my riding in a big kind of way, and would like a board to better complement this (twin, bit more flex, pop, etc).

Having only ridden the T6 (learned on it!) I am used to it's immense stability, responsiveness, camber, superior edge hold, and blasting through sections at 50mph with ease. As such I am a bit concerned that a freestyle board will feel a bit shakey and insecure.

So now I'm looking for an "all mountain freestyle" board so to speak. I know freestyle boards wont typically match the characteristics of the T6 (stability/edge/responsiveness), however am looking for one with "similiar" characteristics, has twin-tip, more flex, more pop (more freestyle geared).

Q: what boards can you recommend?
Q: am I worried for no reason?
Q: stick with camber or go other form?

Cheers guys!
