Default adding a new board to my quiver

hey guys, long time forum browser, first time poster here.

last year i picked up a new arbor westmark 156 and enjoyed it for the most part. this year i'm looking to add a new board to my arsenal/collection. i felt the westmark was a very versatile board to take on groomed trails or runs in the powder but lacking in subtle, subjective ways. there were times where the board seemed a little deader/lacking in feel. i was told that it was an easy-going but aggressive board but after riding it out during the season it felt like the former was more true. i had to constantly push the envelope a bit in order to get to the latter; at high speeds i noticed myself fish-tailing quite a bit. i'm looking for a more aggressive board that can take on big jumps in the park and take hits off the sides of trails. i've done some preliminary research and i've kind of narrowed it down to these three:

arbor del rey (read good reviews plus a soft spot for arbor in general)
k2 happy hour (i've read that flat-line tends to feel dead but people say this board rips pretty hard)
never summer evo (heard major changes in 2012 make this a very aggressive board)

if i'm overlooking something feel free to add to the list! thanks in advance.
