I'm not a fan of jibbing, so rails and boxes are not important for me (but who knows, maybe i will try it with new board). I think freestyle or all mnt freestyle board will be good choice for me. UnInc will stay with me for other things (like pow and etc.)

Weight: 60kg (134 lbs)
Height: 167 (5'6")
Boot: 9


Size of board 150 better choise for me like all-mountain board. But i worry that I will don't feel a big difference between 150 and 153. Is it true?
So, main question is which size of board will be better for me?
Maybe you can recommend me specific models.

list of boards i looked:
Rome Postermania (147/150?, think not good for jumps)
Rome Agent 149 (too stiff?)
Burton Parkitect 150 (like camber and flex, but worry about size, + can use old EST bindings)
Capita Ultrafear FK 147 (is it jib board?)
Never Summer Evo (147/150?)
Forum Distroyer Double Dog (148)
...

Thank you for your response and sorry for my english
I'd recommend the NS Evo or Proto. Both are pressy and poppy and offer good torsional stability. I'm have a lot of fun on mine.
