You are going to find this board a little "looser" or "squirrel y" than what you are used to.
I suggested this board for you given you size, but I don't know if where you ride you are going to have the vertical to do this board justice. It might be great for you on your trips, but for your day to day riding, it might be overkill if you know what I mean. It is a very stiff board, designed for really hard charging on big mountain terrain.
The chatter you are experiencing is not due to the size of your board, but the flex of the board vs. your weight. You are in need of maybe a slightly longer board, but more importantly a stiffer board to handle your weight. If you like your Angus, stick with Rossi and look at the One Magtek or maybe the Krypto. Both are much stiffer than your Angus and something in the 160 to 164 range should serve you well.
As you mentioned there are so many options out there. But for you, no matter which brand you go with, make sure it is a decently stiff board to handle your weight.
Get it. Wax it. Ride it.
