Salomon hologram vs rome katana (vs ? Malavita)

Need some help.
Aiming to get a real cheap used setup to see me through this years trip until I go for a full season in France next year (with new setup).
Undecided on board.
Likely to be between a 155 capita scott Stevens 2014 and a 151 k2 fastplant 2014.
(Any advice on this also appreciated).

Bindings options are 14-15 salomon hologram or rome katana 14-15. Both almost new.
Also considering malavita but yet to find a cheap option.
Stats: 72kg, 5'9", size 10US.
Ride literally everything. Love park and pow equally. Only going away for 10-days so most likely groomers/park but if it happens to dump I'll be out back.
Advice much appreciated.

For your weight probably the Capita and Katanas. The Fastplant might be a little small in fresh snow and I just prefer Katanas to Holograms.

Thanks, was thinking the same. I think i would prefer the fastplant but smallest board I've ever had is a 153.

The Katanas feel a little flimsier. Especially the high back. Do they have reasonable responsiveness?
Also do you know if the 14-15 model are much different to the new one. I can't see much difference on the description. Cheers

Also: just been offered a great deal on a 2016 DC Tone in 153.
Don't know much about Dc boards but it looks like a rocker which puts me off.
Anyone got any opinions that may help?

I think this one is really going to be a personal preference thing. After a handful of days on my Holograms, I couldn't wait to sell them. I vote for the Katanas.
