Default building a quiver help

missed the past 2 seasons to two freak november knee injuries after 17 years of boarding in nor cal.coming off a 2006 167 baron with cartels, and a Canyon and have lost 75 lbs. when i was bigger i felt the board was too long. i recently picked up a used 159w custom x est cartels but am a bit concerned that it might be too small or less stable for bombing runs. im thinking of selling it. im 6'1 , 215 lbs now and size 12/13 boot, very athletic advanced/intermediate with hardly any park experience {i like the natural stuff.} i need to keep a board or 2 in the mountains and one or two at my house for the times i go someplace other than the same mountain area to board.
i own a pair of C02 est, cartel est and 4 year old cartels. so at least one board would need to be a burton ics. didnt want to have 2 of the same boards and or boards that were so similar they would be redundant. definantly want to have 1 regular camber board for bombing groomers,pow,small jumps a jack of all trades board and at least one rc/hybrid board for more freestyle and occasional{intro to} park and a rc/hybrid all mountain board do it all board as 3rd

so looking at the following what would be 3 boards to use to build a diverse quiver with at least one burton ics board among the choices.
158w banana magic{2009 and cheap)
161w or 164w skunk ape
159w or 162w or 164w custom x ics {used and cheap}
158w or 162w flying V ics {a gift}
161w or 164w ride machete
159w or 161w ride high life
164 jones mountain twin

Ban Magic - Your funstick: This board does it all, but it's just a pure joy to ride. This will also double as your powder board.

Cus Fly V - Your all-mountain freestyle stick: This board is really well rounded and will be a hybrid rocker in your quiver. This is a good board to just hit anything you feel like. Playful, yet pretty stable. Decent in pow too.

Cus X - Didn't you already get this? Or are you considering returning it? The 159w is a good size for you. You could go higher though since you lost weight from an injury. That means you'll definitely gain some weight back. Due the longer length. This is going to be your bombing/jump stick. I love the Custom X.

Are you sure 159 will be long enough? Im 6'2, 210 lb's, with 11.5 boots and I went with the 164W. Absolutely love my CX, you'll be happy with that stiff bitch either way, I'm just wondering how it'll perform on pow. Nose might want to dip often but you can always slide your bindings back a bit.

As for the bindings, your Co2 est's should go on your CX and your Cartel est's should go on something like a flying V. One Camber, on Rocker

yeah i got such a deal on the 159w custom x with cartels but then was told i was getting a gift of a custom flying V. im just not sure if i should exchange it for a longer camber board say a 164w/162w.... i'm open to a similar camber board maybe a bit less stiff and possibly a bit less expensive since xmas is coming early with these new toys. im almost at my weight goal of 205 and should be there by december.

so as it stands today here is where i am

159w banana magic or 157w ride machete {tough choice between these two}
162 custom flying v {already confirmed the gift} are C02's too stiff for this board if i get rid of the Custom x?
159w custom x either keep and or exchange for 162w or 164w or another similar camber board

i appreciate all the help and welcome suggestions... normally i would be demoing these before hand but there are so many great deals on 2010 and 2009 boards out there at this time.

I'd exchange the CX for the 162W or 164W (if you're going to be hard charging chutes) and keep the Co2's, and I'd go with a 160 flying V with your cartels. That's the set up I'm running this year. 2010 Custom X 164W and 2011 Custom Flying V. I'll just be using my Co2's on both

yeah, im going to sell my 159cx wide and pick up a 2010 cx 164w or 162w (found one at $433 and i get a 15% discount to use twith the C02's} ... the custom flying v is a gift, leaning towards the 162wide but again keep thinking of the 158wide (with the cartel est} .... the 158 wide might be a lil small or too light flexing for my weight of 220. this year i want to spend more time in the park and doing more freestyle stuff... hopefully the flying v will suffice for that as well or will pick up a used ride machete wide or lib banana wide under 159 for a park board { still have a pair of 4 year old cartels looking to be mounted}....
