Default Jumping Board/Park Board?

Hey guys.
As I am sure most of you have figured out by now I am a pretty serious park rat and don't really like to stray from the parks.

I am looking for another serious jumping board/all around park board.
I want a board with LOADS of pop . Camber preferably.
Sintered base is always a plus for charging at kickers. Mid flex is preferably but I don't want any noodles and don't really want a 2x4. TRUE TWIN IS A MUST! (or at least can be made into a true twin if there is setback!)

I had a DC PLY but have recently broken the core in it so it is out of commission. I really would like to try something new instead of just going back to a PLY even though not to be mistaken because I really did like it!

Boards I have looked at are the DC MLF, Never Summer Proto, Ride DH, and the Lobster Park Board/Bataleon Evil twin since they are the same thing. I am open to ANY AND ALL Suggestions. I REALLY want that pop of camber that just cant be beat in my experience but if anyone can speak otherwise than please by all mine give me recommendations.

I ride a lot of icy conditions and hard pack. Want a board for pure park. Mostly for jumps as I am not a rail guru. Pop is a must.

I am 5'9" and fluctuate between 130-137 pounds. I have a size 9.5 boot and am really keen to stay in the 147-152 range but no bigger and not much smaller.

Also if anyone has any bindings to recommend please do. Not a fan of step ins but the new flows from 2012/2013 with the toe strap and ankle strap instead of one big thing look sick. Don't wanna go with any union forces as I hear they are pretty heavy bindings. Am open to anything anyone has to recommend. Please respond.

Signal Park, light, super poppy, sintered base, $370 it is a little softer though

if you want a stiff jump board go with the ride DH, DH2, or Arcade. My choice would be the Arcade based on this review

Proto is really up there in my choices and malavita have been in my eye for a while so will keep that in mind.

After riding my friends signal park I know that its just too soft for what I want. However I really like the look of that arcade and the DH is up there for me as well.

Nitro Rook hands down.

Or the Arbor Del Rey. Serious amount of pop out of that.

Have heard and read some nasty things about arbors quality but I will definitely look at both. Never really new much about nitro's line.

Nitro T1 and T1 Zero is an option, too. I found the Rook (9.5 boot) a little wide, but might have been a placebo effect.

Arbors are fine as long as you aren't just purposefully abusing them. My Westmark is holding up fine. I threw some 38' step down wedges on my Signal Park Zero and it was fine landing them and I don't really go jumps bigger than that so I think it's a good progression jumping board unless you are throwing down 900s or more. The pop out of it amazed me.

The Rook is a midwide. in my 9s I felt fine. For me Nitro has only been second to Signal in durability and they have pretty consistently ridden very well.
