Default looking for new park board

What's up guys, I'm new to the forum but been around the sport for 7 years. Been riding a Burton Clash for the past 3 years and I'm looking for a new board which is 85% park 15% all mountain.I want to be able to butter and press easily but I plan on progressing on some kickers this year. I've been looking at a few boards so far:
Burton Hero 152
Capita Horrorscope fk 152
Capita Stairmaster fk 152
Rome Artifact 153

Anyone else have some suggestions? My budget is relatively around the 400 mark and my stats are 5'11" 145lbs and 10.5 size boot.
Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Not the Evo. He did not list the EasyLivin, Ultrafear, StairExtreme, and Graft Rocker. If he did then we could add the Evo. From NS look at the Circuit. It's also in your price range as the Evo is not.

That being said, my recommendations go to the Stairmaster and Artifact. I actually support learning park on camber. It forces good technique. Though I don't go as far as to specifically recommend it. If you're cool with it, it will help you in the long run.

May I add a Swindle 152?

Why is that? I learned snowbaording on a camber and started park on a camber. I can hit jumps but i cant do more than a 50/50 on rails.
I just got a R/C board. was planning on trying some slides this year.
Technique with jumps or rails?What should i watch out for when on a rocker camber in park? (in terms of technique)

the evo may be a little out of my range for now but I am definitely looking into the kink and the swindle as we speak thanks for the suggestions. i have ridden camber for the past years, having nothing against it at all and i was just looking for something new to have fun on. i think i have most of my basic techniques down or so i like to think lol.

For me it was that you really have to know how to press to actually get a press. You don't have the forgiveness of rocker in a landing either so you are forced to stomp landings. I'm not saying that if you want to learn park that you should start on camber cause its better to start there, but its something to think about. If it means anything I don't ride any standard camber anymore...
