NEw Lib what to pick

Hi I'm 6'1'' 155lb!!
I would consider my self an advance rider, I put in an avg of 70+ days season for the past 5 years.
I have rode the skate banana 159 , TRS 159(before C2), Jones Mountain Twin159 and Jones Solution 161. In that order
I demoed my friends 161 T-Rice last year, and loved it, found it super solid on the landings (compared to the mountain twin) and more pop.
For a board I'm looking for an all mountain board, that can shred deep powder, more solid then the mountain twin but still is free style inspired.
I love to be able to play with a board butter and goof round but also I'm looking for board that is solid on big drops and has a decent amount of pop.
This year, I'm pretty set on the C2 and my decision lies now between getting a TRS 159. T-Rice 161 Horse Power or one of the Phoenix series in 160.

I was curious if anyone has been able to ride and compare these boards and has any advice in my decision.

banana magic, attack banana or dirty pillow have more rocker = more playful. c2 is more locked in and the phoenix is almost flat, = less playful. I like the flex of the trs. If it was me, a lot of tech for the money in the gnu eco-genetics. La-nina if your feeling more directional. Mervin has a lot of boards in the "all mountain" category

Altered genetics maybe worth looking at. It's pricey, but is a bit softer for an agressive board allowing easier butters over some of the other stiffer Mervyns while still maintaining the ability to charge.
