Park Board...???

I need a new park board and need some reviews on the boards below.

I am looking at:
1. Capita Stairmaster Extreme
2. Omatic Celebrity
3. Signal Park
4. DC PLY
5. Academy Propaganda

Basically...I am looking for a board that is:

True Twin.
147-149.
Soft...but not too soft. Medium soft...is more like it.
Traditional Camber.
And most importantly: LIGHT WEIGHT !!!

The board I have right now feels heavy. I have light weight boots and bindings (32 lashed/Union Contact) and getting a light weight board too will complete my ideal setup. I hate heavy weight gear that feels like its weighing me down.

Which one is the lightest out of the above..?? Any other brands or suggestions..?? Thanks.

why the hell does weight matter so much when its a park deck? like yea sure spins and stuff, but your not bombing any steeps? and weight when jibbing wouldnt make a difference would it?

but to answer your question granted they are all around the same size you would hardly notice the difference in weight between any board? correct me if I'm wrong but this seems silly to me..

btw outta those boards go with the signal park or the capita.

Signal first, PLY second. I like my garage rocker a whole lot too. It is just put together so well.
