rush vs dirty pillow vs sherlock

Looking at maybe getting ride of my ride machete 161w and picking up something new. 200lbs, size 14 foot.

Thinking about a burton sherlock, gnu dirty pillow, or flow rush. I like the flex/stability on the machete but im not crazy on the flat rocker profile. Need something that floats ok and is stable. I would like a twin or at least centered stance, flex can be directional. Other options are welcome.

This board is for ridding steeper terrain and if there is powder. I ride resorts that get tracked out and don't want a board built for pow. I like to ride switch a lot and try to spin off of things, i can handle a little bit of leg burn in the morning to have fun all day.

Sherlock 162w: skinny, waist width 260, 297 tip and tail.

Dirty Pillow 162: ww 263, 302 tip and tail. Really shallow side cut? Should i be worried about this?

Rush 163w: ww 270, tip and tail unknown (if anybody knows i would appreciate it). To stiff? To wide?

Sherlock is awesome in pow and can be fun on groomers but really is not ideal for steeper terrain. The edge hold is sub par on steeps. I wouldn't call it the most stable board in the world either, when you're hauling ass on a groomer it will start to get chattery, and it can be unstable on icy or broken snow. I can't speak to the other boards.

I think the Rush is just the better board of the three. Really poppy, very stable, grippy, and rides well in pow. It is a bit stiffer so you'll need some muscle to get buttery with it, but totally doable.

I think its gonna be harder charging than a Machete. The Rush is one of my favorite boards for all mountain twinage.
