Question Which board to go after?

First up, I'm about 6 feet tall, and weigh between 140-150 pounds. I've ridden 6 days, soon to be 9, and I'm comfortable on blues. I'll be at a few shops soon, so I'll try on some different boots and see what fits right, I'm leaning to 32 Lashed in size 11, and I'll probably put them in Burton Mission bindings.

But right now I'm trying to figure out the board, and what will suit my riding. I'm not interested in park really, but I do *attempt* (and sometimes land ) natural feature jumps. Most of the time I'm on blue groomers, faces, and some moguled runs. I'm planning on doing some powder riding too. The last time I rode, I was on a 159 board. Is that a good size for me? It seemed to work fine. I'm tall, but also very light.

The all mountain boards that I've been looking at are:
Rome Tour (I've heard it may be too soft)
Never Summer SL
Burton Custom
Rossingol Taipan

I realize there are some pretty big price differences on the list. If there's a board (or binding or boot for that matter) that I didn't list, feel free to post it.

Thanks guys!
