Park Board Question. Seeking Expert Advice.

I am looking to get my first park board. I have been riding for 4 years now and have just started going into the park regularly. My current board is a k2 Brigade 162 wide. I was looking at the K2 jibpan. first off is it a good park board? and also I am 6'1 185lbs and wear a size 13 boot. would i be able to go with the 156 or would i need to find a wide board again? I dont mind the wide part I just hate the added weight. any info or advice is much appreciated.

what do u ride mostly in the park
do u prefer jumps or rails and jibs
if jumps: you need a stiffer board
rails: something softer

im not sure if its in your size, but the gnu park pickle is a really good park board. its a few seasons old too so it should be alittle cheaper.

i have been doing a little more research, and the jibpan is prob out. ill def need a wide plus i am looking for something that is solid when im trying to carve not just hit the park. when i do hit the park i am more into jumps then rails so i agree something stiffer would prob be better. right now i am looking at the rome agent or machine(cheaper) and also the never summer revolver and the ride dh2. i am trying to stay around 400-500, but suggestions on these boards or other boards are welcome
