Default need help with a new board

well the end of the season is fast approaching and it's time for me to pick up an 09 board with all the sales kicking into gear before they all sell out.
i'm 5'9ish 140 and i do park/pipe, freestlyle and i would say i'm a bit above intermediate level. i also do a lot of all mountain riding on good snow days. i spend as much timing hitting the park as i do dropping the cliffs and riding the glades.
so i've narrowed down my choices to three snowboards. i've decided to venture into the end of the season and for next season with a rocker board.
my choices are the box scratcher and the evo-r and mayyyyyyyyyyyyyyybe(maybe) a trice.
i've heard many raves about the ns r.c. tech and it's intrigued me.

anybody have personal experiences with the box scratcher or the evo-r? will the box scratcher hold up with it's small size for some all mountain freestyle? i've heard it can but it's hard to find reviews other than shayboarder's. or should i just go with an evo-r for an all mountain slayer and should i go with a 151, 153, or 155? because i've heard with rocker boards you can go down even more.

would a 148 still be stable enough outside the park? i would like a smaller board for tighter turns in trees etc but i don't want anything that's gonna wash out on me when i start to charge

for your size it should be just about perfect.

well i'm 16 so i expect to be growing a tiny bit more and i found an evo-r for 100$ off at 151 so i think i might go with that unless a 148 would be significantly more advantageous
