Default similar board to Rossi diva mag?

Hey guys
I just spent this season riding a Rossignol Diva Mag 148. I adored this board! I loved its flex and really felt like the magne traction edges helped on icy and hard-packed runs. Unfortunately, I wrecked it pretty hard the other day, and am now searching for something somewhat similar to replace it.

I ride mostly terrain (ie, moguls, tree runs) in various conditions, but it can sometimes get icy so i like having a board with a solid gripping edge. I ride about 45 days per season, so looking for something durable. I'll do jumps and spins in the park, but I'm not much into the rails/jibbing. Not really interested in a rocker. But I do like a decent amount of flex. Sizing maybe within the range of 146-150.

So far, i've been taking a look at the following:
-Burton Gtwin (not sure about the binding system here though)
-Roxy Eminence BTX
-Ride Promise (maybe a bit stiff?)
-K2 fling
-Artec/Elan Laura Hadar

What do you think? I am open to suggestions on other boards as well!
thanks so much!

If you were a big fan of magnetraction, you'll probably want to check out Lib-Tech's and GNU's lineups. Most of them use magnatraction.

I like Ride's boards, but you won't find a single magnatraction among them. Don't believe the hype, Smooth Side, Smooth Ride.

Edit: Ahhhh fuck, it's late. Didn't notice the Roxy in there.

If you are looking at the Roxy Eminence, also consider the Gnu B-street. Exact same board, just different graphics and sizes. They are considered jib boards, so they are softer than the Diva Mag, but do an excellent job all-mountain. I ride the B-street and love it.

Take a look at the Never Summer Infinity-r as well.

All are alternative camber boards, which will give you extra float in the trees on powder days.
