Default Danny Kass vs Park Pickle vs Proto vs DH2 vs Banana Magic

Having a hell of a time picking my next board, any help is appreciated.

150lbs
5'7
9.5 boot
East Coast (Loon, Stratton, etc)
Ride 100% park
63.2% big kickers 360 and 540's being my favorite trick and hopefully 720's next year or I will die trying.
36.8% metal rails

This is my short list in no order:
Will also be looking at the 2012 models of these when they get more reviews.

2011 Ride DH 2.5 153 Flex 7 Waist 25.1
2011 GNU Park Pickle 153 Flex 6 Waist 25.2 BTX Asymetric
2011 GNU Danny Kass 153 Flex 6 Waist 25.2 C2BTX
2011 LibTech Banana Magic 152 Flex 6 Waist 25.1 C2BTX with Magne
2012 LibTech Attack Banana 153 Flex 6 Waist 25.1 EC2
2012 NS Proto CT 152 Flex 5 Waist 24.4


So my questions:

If anyone has ridden at least two of these boards on the list, could you tell me your thoughts, especially which one had more pop?

Anyone know what the differences will be on the 2012 boards, vs the 2011 boards on this list?

How is the Proto flex 5 rating, vs the gnu/lib flex 6 rating?

Any other board suggestions?

Thanks!
