Checked them out this weekend, the Highlife seemed better suited than the berzerker. The highlife was much stiffer than my gnu, pressing it on the floor felt just right.
The 2012 was on sale for $450 cdn, I didn't buy it but I think it's the right board now. Think about bindings for it now.
If you check Ebay right now, there are some Jones Flagships for under 400$ us which is a pretty insane deal.
I briefly owned the first generation flag in 164 and sold it because it was about as damp as piece of balsa wood --- things may have changed in year 2 with tech and a lot of folks seem to swear by the flag...
Would probably fit your needs at a sweet price..
