Looking the right Board all Mountain Freestyle

Hello everyone!!
I am doing a long research about boards, my old one is a Rome Solution 148 (I think was a little short to me, I am 5,3 feet and 149 pounds).
After all the research, I got my TOP 5 Boards yet I dont know (I never tried any of those)which will be more flexible and like my kind of ride. I like to do ollies, butters, 180, 360 on trails, maybe some rails too, yet I need one to work in powder and out the trail too, I think is like a all mountain freestyle, yet I give more point to the flexible one, to make easy nose/tail press and when I will get more speed not lose so much stability.
Anyways, the boards I checked are:

Rome-Pusher 1985 (Reverse Camber/Twin Shape)
Stepchild-Chi Borg (Reverse Camber/Twin Shape)
Capita-Indoor Survival FK (Reverse Camber/Twin Shape)
GNU-Park Pickle (Reverse Camber/Twin Shape)
Lib Tech-TRS (Reverse Camber/Directional Twin Shape)

Well, I need your wisdom guys, wich you think will be more for my kind of ride, Thanks to take the time to answer this topic.

Out of your list, I would personally go with the Park Pickle.

I personally ride a Ride Machete which I think have a good medium flex so you might want to look into that. I've also heard good things about Never Summer SL and Heritage for all mountain freestyle (never tried them). You might also want to look at Bataleon Evil Twin or Goliath.

Sure. If you're going to open it up to anything, my recommendation is the board on the right in my av - the NS Evo-R.

I think maybe i will buy two boards.... I was watching some videos, and I found this one (YouTube - SNOW BOARD GROUND TRICK (?????MOVIE 09--10 TRUST6MEDIA (MASTER OF GROUND#02)(MAGIC BOARD)) ... this is my goal, so to give more point to the flex part, which board do you recommend?
Rome Artifact 1985?
LibTech Skate Banana?
Capita Horroscope?
another ideas?
with my 5,3 feet and 149 pouns I will get a 150 to TRY this kind of tricks.
hope you can give me some ideas.

Okay, wait a minute, if stuff like that is your ultimate goal, I'd go with a Rome Artifact or K2 WWW and either way I'd put Flux Titan RKs on it.
