Narrowed it down to 3 boards

I'm mainly all over the mountain, always riding fast and hit natural features, rarely in the park but would like to know I have a setup capable of being fine hitting small kickers / rails.

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

paired with either some Union Force's or Ride SPI's.

Opinions? I've been riding for about 13 years and am looking for something a bit more fun, currently I'm on a 156 Forum Warrior.

I'm 5'8, 155lbs, 10.5 boot.

And the one after this will say use the search button as this question has been answered a billion time this month alone.

Or at least, they should.

I have searched.. I see everyone likes the NS. But was curious what the real benefit over the lib tech and the gnu, is it the camber?

Is the phoenix more of a park board than an all mountain/freeride board?

Also, with the banana, I know you can run a shorter board than you'd usually run, does the same apply to the NS rocker tech? I don't know if I should be on the 151 or the 155

151 sounds a little short for these styles of board to me!

yeah, I think I'll stick to the 153-155 range. I like to ride fast and don't want to get something that'll feel sketchy at speed.
