Buttering Board recommendation

I posted a question a while back about a recommendation for a jibbing board but have a follow up question. I still haven't commited to any board yet.

I currently ride a 2011 GNU Park Pickle with Burton Mission bindings. I love the ride but I want to make it my all mountain board and get another board that excels in just jibbing and buttering (more buttering). I'm looking to get better at flatland tricks and I'm still learning rails.

I assume I would want a really loose noodle but I still want a board with good pop because I just cant stay away from jumps and I like the pop when spinning 180s and 360s. I think the looser the board the less pop. I was looking at the Ride Crush, Solomon Salomander. Any suggestions?

By the way, I'm 180 pounds and 5'11. I'm looking to go with as small a board as I can so I can manhandle it without snapping it.

I would get a kink over a crush if you want to be able to pop and jump still
