Default Need Advice For New Park Board

I'm in the market for buying a new board. I am in the park 80% of the time and the rest on groomers and in pow. I want a board that can hit jumps up to 50ft, but soft enough to jib. I also want to know what size board would be the best for me I am 5'11", 175lbs, and Size 10 boot.
The the three boards I have been looking at are the Arbor Westmark, Capita Ultrafear, and Bataleon Evil Twin.

check out the never summer evo or revolver (if you have bigger feet). It's nice and soft for the park and super poppy. It feels really stable on big booters too. Plus the edge hold is great on the mountain with the RC technology but thats just a bonus

I'm a huge fan of the westmark but try to find the 11/12 model if you can. Arbor switched from a sintered base to an extruded base for 2013 and that's gonna get really torn up if you spend a lotta time in the park.

On a side note, the revolver is only a midwide not a full blown wide board so it gives it a little more stability without making it noticeably less responsive. I like wider waist widths anyway even though I don't necessarily need them so it was an easy choice for me.

We had our first really good pow day of the season in the midwest this past Sunday and I was really impressed with how my revolver handled. No troubles whatsoever!

I'm 5'11" 140lbs and I ride a 155 so for you I'd probably recommend the 157 especially since you're talking about hitting jumps.
