Default C2BTX vs BTX vs EC2BTX and Flexibility

Right now I have a reverse camber board, stiffness rating of 6 according to zumiez. I want a more playful board.

I've been looking at the Skate Banana, the C2BTX boards and the EC2BTX boards. What would be the best for me? I want more flex and forgiveness on landings but still have the ability to ride park or just carve around when I choose.

All rockers are going to be playful. What you're looking for in a hybrid profile is increased edge hold. What's best for you is whatever you prefer.

Based on your description, I would say that you want to have some camber in the profile for your cruising. I am not a huge fan of full rocker because I find it limiting when I want to cruise at speed or carve. I don`t find camber limiting in any significant way when it comes to park.
How about stiffness? Right now like I said I have a 6 and i feel like its pretty damn stiff.
