Roxy boards are manufactured by Mervin, so if you're worried about branding: don't be.

It looks like you've got two kinds of boards you're looking at. Softer, full rocker jib-ish boards, and aggressive hybrids. So the first thing I'd do is really decide which way you want to go. The Ally and Lo-fi are both pretty darn soft and have no camber, so if you want this board to focus on jibs, do one of those.

If you don't expect jibs to be a priority, definitely go with the more aggressive C2BTX hybrid shape with an eminence or TRS (which will incidentally be very similar to your B-pro.) Keep in mind that the eminence has Mervin's awesome sintered base, and the TRS uses their extruded base that gets some... mixed reviews.
