Any suggestions to what board I should get?

Hey I'm Lindsey, been snowboarding for 3 years now. I need to find the perfect board for me, any suggestions? I'm 5'10 ish, wiegh around 155-160, I'm in the more intermediate stage I believe. I can do small-medium jumps, boxes, some rails, attempting 180's, bigger hills etc. On black/blue hills, a few double blacks. I ride on powder mostly. I go about 4-7 times a year, depending on whether or not i'm free. I live in Michigan so no Mt. ranges fer me, I recently am riding a 159 Burton Dominant 2008 with Burton Freestyle bindings. I know I bought the board a little big so thats why i'm looking for a board. Right now i'm looking into a 154 Rome Agent 2008, I checked it out, got good reviews, seems to be what i'm lookin for but I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions? Thanks.

What size boot do you wear and why are you looking at '08 stuff (there is a reason it is still sitting around)?

I wear a size 10-11 in womens, 9 in mens. Don't really have a reason, whatever seems to suite me I'll consider. If i buy it I'm buying it off one of my friends, they've never even opened the package, just been sitting around.

So is Lindsey a dude's or chick's name?

My suggestion would be to compare whatever your friend has with something from 2010, you will notice quite a bit of differences. Unless your buddy is letting that Agent go for $150 or less, it probably isn't worth it. For reference, our shop sold our last 08 Agent in October of 2009 for $220.
