Looking for a new deck

I am 5-10, 200 lbs, size 10 boot. I have been riding for about 10 years and its time for an upgrade. I ride all over the mountain. I like to go fast but I also like to slow down and hit natural jumps and butter around.

I just bought a used Burton Easy Livin Flying V and Malavita EST's. I have ridden it twice so maybe I'm not used to it yet but I have found this board to be way to soft. It seems like it washes out when on the tip and tail. My board before this was a Burton Custom. Both are 158's.

I like the non-catchy feel of the hybrid deck on the ELFV but its just to soft. I liked the stiffness of the custom but it was not as playful as the ELFV.

What boards should I look at? I think I want a 5-7 stiff board with some type of hybrid shape. The only one I have found so far is the Lib Tech TRS. Any other suggestions?
