Default Hello from New Zealand. Which Snowboard to get?

Hi there,

I'm very picky when it comes to buying gear, so I thought i'd try and get some adive from you guys out there. I want the best setup I can buy for my money, and I have a few options.

I hope you guys can narrow the selection down a bit.

First off I am, 6.0ft tall and weigh about 130lbs (58kg) so I have been looking at boards around the 153-155 size. Im an intermediate rider, whos borrowed or rented gear previously.

Heres what ive been looking at:

2007 GNU CHB 153 with Burton Cartel bindings. Second hand - ridden three times... $US 277 ($500 NZD)http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=214348802

2007 Burton Vapor 153 with Burton CO2 bindings. Second hand, reasonably good condition. $US 344 ($621 NZD) http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=214564611

2008 Ride Downhill 155 with 06 Burton Mission bindings. Well used. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=214151350
$US 332 ($600 NZD)

2008 Custom 156 - Board only brand new. $276 US ($500 NZD)

Would a Custom X 152 be too small for me? I like to ride aggresivley, all mountain, with some jumps and occasionally boxes. No rails

There is also this board but it is rated at a flex of 3.5 so is this a begginers board. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/List...x?id=214878607

Thanks for anyhelp.
