OP hope its no too late for me to chime in, i am the exact same spec as u, 6ft 189lbs and 10.5shoes

i have over 10boards including the 159 raptor. i cant say it is better than flagship since i never tried one, but it is amazing for trees. it is super agile, a lot less forgiving than other NS board due to longer camber on nose, set back is for ultra float and very very damp. sometimes it scares me cause i feel like the nose is pulling me to sherr it wants at a fast speed, but if you come from an old school camber board than u shouldnt have a problem

whoever says rap is only for big mountain pow lines either never rode raptor or needs to relearn his skillz
