New fun board, K2 Parkstar, NS Evo, Rome P'mania- whats best

Going away to meribel for the season this year looking to grab another board before i go out.

At the moment i ride a 158 Never Summer SLR and love it

so im looking for something with reverse camber, a twin shape a bit more playful that'd be at home in the park aswell as on piste.

I've narrowed it down to the following options

K2 Parkstar 155
NS evo
Rome Postermania 156
or a skate banana or any thing else of that kind

what would everyone recommend, im around 90 kg but dont want a board thats similar to my ns so was looking to go shorter


2nd thing i currently have a set of targas and a set of union forces would the forces be a good match for the boards above?

Thanks in advance for your advice

I can't speak for the Postermania because I don't have that board. but I have both 2010 Parkstar and NS Evo-R and the EVO is a significantly better board than the parkstar. This is not to bash the K2. It did everything well and I enjoy the board a lot. However, the Evo just took it to another level
