Default Which Board for Park? Need Help!!!

Hi. there is a big sale and i am thinking about gettin a new parkboard.
i am 6'0 and 180 lbs. Ive got 32 Lashed in size 10,5. i ride a Capita Indoor FK 158 for the whole mountain and it works great. Right now i am looking for a board only for parkriding and jibbing around the mountain.
Which board would fit me best?

RIDE Kink 155
BATALEON Evil Twin 154
BATALEON Evil Twin 157
BATALEON Evil Twin Classic 155 (Or schould i wait for next years evil twin???)
ROME Graft 155
ROME Artifact 153 (2009/2010)
CAPITA Stairmaster 156

i do medium kickers (0 - 10m, the 10s not very often) and all boxes and rails. never ride in the pipe.

Would be nice if you could help me because i like all of them!!!!

Thanks.
the kink is my favourite but i am not quite sure if it can handle the jumps. my last park board was very unstable at medium kickers.

If you thought a Youngblood was too soft I will edit my list and add some stuff. Ignore flex numbers, they mean squat.

Try a Nitro Rook, Flow Quantum, Ride Machete, Stepchild JP, or an Academy Rhythm Reverse.

The kink can handle the occasional midrange kickers pretty well if you've got that distance dialed in already (10 meter is like 30 feet, right?). But honestly, if you thought the youngblood was too soft, then the kink is a noodle. Look into the stairmaster or stairmaster extreme depending on your flex preferences. I'm bias and have little to no experience on some of the other boards suggested, so take it FWIW.

thanks for your help. Just have listed these boards cause they are really cheap at the moment and i like them. there are only these three left and one of them will be mine.
graft(155) costs 200, stairmaster(156) costs 160 and kink(155) costs 170. nice price!

i think i decide in the store when i see them.

any last tips or favourites are welcome!!

Again thank you guys for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of those three the Stairmaster is your best bet.
