Default Time to get a new board

Hey guys I'm looking for a new board. I've been riding for ~7 years but been out of the sport for about 4 years now due to some injuries both on and off the snow. Stuffs changed quite a bit during that gap. I'm coming from a mid 2000's 151cm Forum Team (I think) board.

I'm 5'3" 145lbs wear a size 10 Burton Ruler with an athletic build. I ride the ice coast so edge hold is a must but not too twitchy. I'm thinking of going to the new rocker/camber style boards, something stiff enough to still handle the mountain + ice but enough play to have some fun in the park. Most of the recommend boards on here seem to stop at 153-154 which seems a little bit big given powder is a mystical beast around here.

Any recommendations?

I should probably mention I'm 25 and not growing. I'm also losing some weight and will probably be in the 140 range before first snow.

Given my stature I was thinking a softer board even though I'm not a huge rail/jib guy, but I'm slowly working on it. I've never used a rocker/camber so flex wise I'm still lost.

I was thinking of a NS evo ~ 150 or 152

Arbor Westmark 153, Flow Era 153, or a Nitro Rook 154.

Just found a dealer in driving distance that got some Evo's and Proto's in. Time for a road trip.
