New Snowboard

I am looking for new snowboard to get and I have run into a couple of questions.

I am 5'3" and weigh around 125 or so. Size 8 boots. The board I own now is a 2007 Forum Youngblood Mini 137. It is extremely flexible despite the regular camber and I feel that it may be too flexible (I would rate it a 1/10, 10 being stiff). When I go to do presses it is extremely easy to lean too far into the press and slip/wash out over the end of the board. On my next board I really want to be able to improve my presses and butters.

Is it possible that the board I have is so flexible that it is actually difficult to press or am I just terrible? I feel like if I get a stiffer board with maybe a reverse camber then it would be easier to press. Is there a good combination of flex and camber-type that makes pressing easiest? Also I would like it so my board is not 100% park specific as I do enjoy riding the rest of the resort.

Lastly, I am trying to get a board that is available in about a 142-145 (The board that I am looking a now is a Rome Postermania 144)so suggestions would be great...
