Default help me pick a board for 2012

Hey everybody, I'm looking to get a new board for the next season. My rider stats are

Height: 5'8.5"
Weight: 165lbs
Stance: goofy, 24.5" stance
Boots: size 10 nike zoom kaijus
Bindings: 2010/2011 Union Contacts
Location: Ice Coast
Riding: mainly park with an even mix between boxes and jumps

Currently riding a 2007 Rome Agent 155

Looking to get a slightly smaller board in the 151-153 range.

I've narrowed it down to 5 choices but any additional suggestions would be great too

Top two choices would be:

Bataleon Evil Twin
Never Summer Proto CT (although i am considering EVO as well)

both true twins, hear nothing but great things about them. I want to stay away from wet noodles though, i tried my friends bataleon aerobic and i hated it.

My biggest concern for these two boards are:
can the 153 or under size accommodate my 24.5" stance and will i have to get the CTX for size 10 boots?

The other three boards I'm considering, mostly based on hype and cool graphics are:
Endeavor colour
Dinosauars will die Rat
DC snowboards, not really sure which model yet but I freaking love Torstein lol

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Endeavor is Meh. DWD should die. Replace DWD with Academy or Signal. Propaganda reverse or Park.

Honestly an Evo over a Proto if its strictly for the park.
And a Whatever over an ET. They have softer tips making for easier jibbing.

I also highly recommend the Arbor Westmark.
Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

thanks for the suggestions. I'll look into it. I was suspecting that DWD is really just all hype, good to get a second opinion.
