Default Best snowboard for jumps and kickers

Hi all,
What's the best snowboard for jumps and kickers? What's more stable on big landing?
I'm choosing from:
Burton Custom
Burton Mr. Nice Guy
Burton Easy Livin
Never Summer Evo
GNU Park Pickle
GNU Riders Choice
GNU Danny Kass
Lib-Tech Travis Rice Pro

Maybe you know something else...

None of those would be on my short list of jump boards.

2013 Signal OG Flat, Nitro Team Gullwing or Rook, Food Quantum, Bataleon ET, Arbor DelRey, Ride Buckwild, or a Forum Destroyer Doubledog.

Rome Mod 2012 & possibly the Arbor Blacklist.

You want something with pop, I'd go with traditional camber or some kind of hybrid, not straight reverse camber.

If you have watched Art of Flight you know what the T Rice is able to do. If you haven't - go watch it!

Whether it's a good board for you - this is a totally different story.

The Pickle is probably unstable on big landings because it doesn't have the c2. The Riders' Choice should be OK for you, pretty versatile overall.

I also expect the Evo will work for you unless you are going BIG.

For pure jumping I would be on a Battalion or Lobster.
