Default Freeride stick: SL vs Agent vs Element?

Alright so you may have seen my thread about my stolen Custom X. As hard as I'm trying to get it back, I do need a new board now so I'm looking at either the NS SL(151), the Rome Agent (149) or the Arbor Element camber(152) as a freeride board. I know these are all more park-ish boards, but I'm only 120lbs at 5'4. I ride mostly groomers, like hard, hard carving, but little park although I would be down to try something new this year. Ive been riding a borrowed 152 Supermodel, and it's also been pretty good to me although it just doesnt feel quite as planted as my Custom, maybe due to the size difference? So, my question is, out of these 3, which would you recommend for freeride? I don't have much experience with boards other than my own, so I can't really compare to anything. In other words, which would ride most like my old board? If neither are alright, could you recommend a similar short board? I would need the board to be either am: Arbor, Battaleon, Endeavour, Never Summer, Prior, Rome, Rossignol or StepChild.

at your weight my 151 SL should be good for freeriding. I'm selling mine for 280 + shipping.

I found my SL too soft for charging hard. Got the 2011 Jamie Lynn which has worked out much better for me.

Agent. If you want NeverSummer, consider the Heritage instead.

The smallest size for the Heritage is 155, that would be too long for me... I know these boards arent suited the best for the type of riding that I do but size is a pretty big issue. I guess for my weight the 149 Agent would be stiff enough then?

I think the Sl will suit you fine at your weight. Partial to their durability and performnce. You don't find many folks who ow one disatified. I have evo, heritage, and am purchasing a F1 Premier.
