Default Freestyle Board

I am looking for a board to be used primarily in the park and for hitting jumps, I want something that its flexible enough to hit rails and stiff enough to hit the booters. I am 5'9" 142lbs with a 10.5 size boot. I was looking at:
Rome Graft 153
Forum Destroyer 152
Burton Dominant 150 or 154
Ride Kink 152
Rome Agent 152
or any other suggestions.
I was just worried about toe or heel drag and money isn't really an issue.

Thanks guys, I was leaning towards the graft more than any of the others.

EDIT: Do you think I should go with the 151 instead of 153 since it will be primarily for park?

Height has NOTHING to do with what size board you should ride.
