Recommend me a board

Hey guys,
I know you get a ton of these posts, but I'd appreciate some input. I'm looking to pick up a second board, more of a freestyle board. I just bought an Arbor Element 151, which I love, its a great board for cruising. Problem is its really stiff, which is great at speed, but I can barely even do nose rolls on it. I started instructing this year and feel that this board is a little tricky for all of the bouncing around and slow speed maneuvering I need to do in a lesson. I'm 5'10 but only 120lbs, so pressing a board that's not the size of a skateboard is a bit of an issue anyway. I'm looking to pick up something that will be a little bit more user-friendly for my lessons and for messing around on the hill and in the park. I don't hit the park too much due to some knee issues, but I'd like something that would perform pretty well for when I do hit it. I currently live in VA, so slush/ice/crap/etc, and am most likely moving to VT next year, so a powder board really isn't necessary. I've been thinking about a Lib Tech with magnetraction (which some of the guys I work with are loving for our conditions). Since money is tight and I did just buy a new board this year I'm probably going to be looking for something used, but not too old (try to keep it around $100 plus bindings). Unfortunately the Libs seem to hold their value pretty well. Any suggestions of some other brands, or some particular LT's to look for? Thanks a lot, I appreciate any advice.
