Boards similar to Westmark/BL

So I am selling my Machete because I am doing alot more park riding now and it too stiff for jibbing/buttering.

I really like the specs of the Arbor Westmark but it is out of my budget, looking to pick up a last years model board for around $250

Can you guys recommend some boards that are similar to the Westmark and include jib tech? I mostly ride groomed hard pack.


background:
beginner/intermediate rider
50% jumps 50% jibs
6'1 175lb
11 nike vapen


CLIFFS:

looking for a mid-soft board that will help me progress in the park, both rails/boxes and small-medium kickers. I am 70% park 30% all mtn

Other boards im looking at:
Ride Kink
Salomon Drift Rocker
Salomon Villain
Flow Verve
Rome Artifact
Forum Destroyer

Thanks Nivek! I was hoping to get your input. Unsure of what you mean by your cliff though... are you suggesting the sabotage over the villain/destroyer dd/verve or vice versa?

First one. Sabotage first. One of the most fun boards I've ever ridden.
