K2 Slayblade too stiff ! need new deck

I have been an occasionally lurker so thought it was time to join!

Currently riding a 2011 K2 Slayblade 156 with 2011 Burton Cartel’s. The Slayblade is an amazing board for charging the mountain and tight carves, but I feel like its just too stiff for my riding (especially the torsional stiffness) and am looking for something that is not so stiff. I was previously riding a 2011 Capita Indoor Survival FK 156, which is a very fun board as well, but not quite stiff enough to hold an edge for more aggressive carving.

I ride mainly all mountain (intermediate) – groomers, trees, powder, and love to hit natural kickers, jumps etc. I do venture into the park, although its not a main area of focus.

Board I’m considering –

LibTech T. Rice 157 C2BTX (too stiff?)
Capita BSOD 156
Ride DH 2.5 (2011 Coop limited edition) 155
LibTech Attack Banana (too soft?)
LibTech Jamie Lynn 156
Endeavour – Board of Directors 157

Never Summer ?

Not a huge fan of traditional Camber, although I am very interested in hybrid. Slayblade is 0 camber, I really dig the “no edge catch”. I have never rode of any of the boards above, and I’m 5’9, 150 lb.

would love some feedback or opinions!!!
