Need some board advice please

I'm 5'8", 155 lbs, 10/10.5 boot. Been riding for about 13 years.
I ride fast, and mostly freeride, all over the mountain.I love powder riding but spend a lot of time on groomed east coast trails, and I'm out west once a year. I'm not a big park guy, I'll run in there occasionally for a few rails and small kickers but mostly I just hit natural features if I see them and catch air like that.

I'm ready for a new board. I've been on a 156 Forum Warrior for a few years and it's a bit too big and stiff for me. I've narrowed it down to these boards; if you have any advice or other suggestions, I'd appreciate it. I'd like to make a good decision here because in the past I've definitely rushed a bit.

1) Lib Tech Phoenix 151
2) GNU Riders Choice 151.5
3) Never Summer SLR 151

As for bindings, I'm thinking of going with the Ride SPI's or Union Force's.

You'll probably hear a lot of good things about the SL-R around here and other places. It's a pretty solid board.
