Default T. Rice vs Jones

Stats
5'10"
190 lbs
boot size 12~12.5

I currently have a 170 cm NS Legacy I bought from the rental store when I learned a few seasons ago. I really like the board,but its time to move on to something more versatile.

I really enjoy riding riding through the trees and hauling ass through the groomers. I also really like hiking and riding backcountry but will look at getting a splitboard when those days make up a larger portion of my riding. I like to ride everything but the park. I do like to hit little natural jumps and drops but want to work up to bigger things. I need a do it all board because I travel a lot.

The boards I have been looking at are the
T, Rice Pro C2BTX 157 blunt and 161.5 pointy.
Jones All Mountain Twin wide 161

From talking to others on the forum I should be ok with boot drag on the T. Rice but I am pretty sure Ill need the wide Jones. Does the wide version effect the performance at all? Would the T. Rice 157 Blunt be ok with my weight in powder?

Looking at the Union Atlas Bindings

Any input is appreciated!!!
