Help with new board: Rome Reverb Rocker, Skate Banana or Gnu Pickle??

Looking for a new soft Board for playing on the mountain.

73kg / 160lbs
183cm / 6'0
Nitro Ultra 13 US11 / 44 / 29
Stance 23" +18/-15

Im not an aggressive rider. Stay almost all the time on the mountain, riding groomers and buttering, also jumps and some powder.

Because Im still learning everything so would like a sort forgiving board.

At first I was considering the Jones Mountain twin but after looking at it in the shop yesterday I think its too stiff for my style. After talking with the shopmen there I narrowed my choice down to three boards now:

- Rome Reverb Rocker (157 or 155W?)
- Lib Skate Banana (156 or 156W?)
- Gnu Pickle (156 or 156W?)

The two bananas have the same width but the wide version (Waist 26.5 Nose 30.5) seems to be too wide for my 44 feet?

I tend to get the Reverb Rocker now and still not sure if I should get a Wide? The shopman yesterday has the same size feet and said 44 is in-between and I could ride both…

Rome Reverb Rocker 157: Waist 254, Nose/Tail 295.8
155W: Waist 261, Nose/Tail 302.2

Which fits me better regarding the width and length??

Thanks!!
