Mid/Wide Jib Board that can do medium kickers

I'm looking for a jib board that isn't going to completely wash out on carves or up to rails/jumps. I know it's a tall order since the more stiff you get the less jibby you get, but jibbing/pressing is 1st priority. And then if I can still hit the kicker at the top of chiar 9 at bear mtn. (20-30ish) ft. Then that would be cool.

I have a 157 T Rice Pro for bombing and big stuff, but that thing is super stiff for me on boxes press etc. Looking for something in the 151-154W range.

I got a lot of great recommendations from folks but they don't have big feet. sz 12. So when I went to check out the specs on the recommendations, they're too narrow.

List

Burton Super Hero or Nug?
Capita Horrorscope
Rome Artifact Rocker
Battalion Disaster
Arbor Blacklist
GNU Carbon Credit

Might be the way to go. I hear the box scratcher is amazing. Wish it came a little wider!!! I'd be dragging my toe all over the place.

Thanks for the other suggestions.

And Instead of just listing the boards in the segment which I'm aware of, some personal review opinion or why you like them vs. another one is always handy.

I'm going to be demoing a lot it looks like.

I'd say a Kink. It's got a soft flex that you can better and it's flat profile will let you bomb some hills and not wash out. If jib is #1 thou I would say horoscope. Super super soft if you practice landing you won't washout. My buddy doesn't on 40ft
