Default Powder Board - Jones, K2, or ??

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a new powder board and I can't seem to figure out which board would suit my style of riding.

I currently have a 2010 K2 gyrator and it does very well for me. It is a light board, twin-ish IIRc and basically unsinkable. It does very well in the trees and hasn't given me any problems off cliffs up to ~20ft.

Think of my riding style as freestyle influenced freeriding. I love to jump and spin off of natural features as well bomb through the trees. So the board has to be quick edge to edge. A lot of big mountain boards wont work for me because of this.

My stats:
5'9"
155lbs
9.5 boot


The list:

Jones Flagship 158
Jones Mountain Twin 157 or 160
K2 Ultra Dream 158
K2 Peace Keeper 159

I'm also open to other ideas.

Thanks for your help!
~ BP
