Narrowing down the list

Okay so i posted a topic last week and got some really good, informative answers about a freestyle type board which can go on runs and learn some park moves on kickers, jumps and potentially rails etc.

I thought the Rome Slash would be this board for me so went in to check it out, however it felt really flexy and that got me thinking that maybe it's too flexy for me (i'm 240lbs 6'5") so i went home looked up Rome's other boards and saw the Rome Flag which is one notch up on the flex scale (according to Rome) and is damper for higher speeds. I realize it may not be the best board to hit rails on but in terms of what i'm after i think maybe this could be the board.

So i've narrowed it down to -
Rome Flag
Rome Slash (worried about the flex though)
GNU CHB MTX wide
NS Revolver - R
NS Legacy - R
and finally
Burton Custom Wide

Any thoughts as to which board i should/could get and why? Apologies for the story.

I had a look at the Agent but it's a little too narrow for my liking. From what i understand the Slash is a wide agent but i could be wrong.

I haven't looked at the stairmaster as i figured it wouldn't be as solid on runs or jumps as these other ones. Once again i could be wrong though.

sry left my comp at my buddies lol, the agent is a regular width slash and the stairmaster is a notch softer then the agent. with 240 pounds any board that says its freestyle would probably feel like a noodle i would imagine. umm im going to guess and say look at some of the stuff in the lib tech and gnu line, they have some stiffer freestyle decks like the TRS and the T Rice. neversummer legacy r is also something to look at, didnt think about it at first but it could be the best choice for you. also the custom and custom x might be nice if its not a directional board

I'll add those Lib Tech ones to the list and go have a look today to see if the local shop has any i can scope out. Custom X i've heard isn't the most durable and i'd like to stay away from Burton if poss i only added the custom cause well it's suppose to be so good.
