Default Need advice on board choice (freeride/freestyle)

Hey fellow shredders, I'm 5"11, 225lbs, 12 boot. I ride Alaska backcountry 80% of the time. And realize my little 158w banana magic wasn't cutting it. Here are my board choices after doing some research (in no preferable order besides size):

164w Yes pick your line
164 ride slackcountry UL
163w jones flagship carbon (wll entertain normal flagship if carbon is sold out)
163w k2 slayblade
162w burton custom x
162 capita black snowboard of death
161.5 lib tech T. rice pro horsepower

Any other board suggestions will help and or any input. I'm pairing one of these boards with a choice of:

Flow NX2-SE
Union force SL
burton diode

"riding is riding bro"
