Default Buying a new board

Hey guys,

I am wanting to buy a new board for next year. I have a lower budget, I don't want to go over $350 if I can. I have been snowboarding for about 7 years, but I unfortunately only go a couple times a year, hoping that this year I can change that. I live on the East coast, so we get a lot of ice out here. I have my own board, but I'm wanting to upgrade. I think the one I have now is a traditional camber. It's extremely stiff and heavy, it kills my knee by the end of the day from riding the lifts. I'm pretty sure it's a guys board. I ride trails, but I have recently started jumping and going through wood trails, so I want something that is easier to turn and has some pop to it. I demoed a Roxy T-bird the last time I went, and I absolutely loved it. The problem is they are mostly sold out of my size, the 145. I'm 5'4'' and I weight 116. I was also looking at the Burton Deja Vu, and I found one that is a 146 on sale for $270. Is that something I should go for, or is there a better board out there? I'm a pretty decent rider, so I want a board that I won't grow out of.
