Default Opinions please - Raygun or Carbon Credit

Hey guys, Ive done alot of research but would like some personal help if anybody has any to give. Ive been recommended from the local shop the gnu carbon credit or k2 raygun. Here is some info

East Coast rider so alot of hard pack and there can be ice. Does Magnetraction really work that well? Also read a few times about raygun not being great for those condiditions. Concerned about rockers on east coast but guy said theyll be fine

I want all mountain with a little more focus on general riding then park. I do spend a little time in park but mostly kickers, some jumps, and boxes. Nothing crazy. Concerned the CC is too focused on park cause I would prefer the board be stronger for speed and stability

I currently have a burton royale midwide 158. I thinking I should get a wide though cause I get some drag. Size 11 32s on burton missions. 6ft and 215lbs so I am thinking length like 159,160,161?

Im no expert but can ride just about any trail no problem but the real tough double blacks can give me some trouble but usually cause they are covered in ice it seems

I rather make sure the board is right rather then just price, but CC is 400, RG is 350, and I could get a year old RG for around 270 I think it was. Would like to keep it under 400

Which do you guys think fits me better? Or do you have some recommendations that might be better off for me? Thanks
