Need advice on a board+bindings

First... I am 6'3, 210 pounds, size 12 or 13 boot
I am getting my first board, but I am not new to snowboarding. I used my brothers old Santa Cruz 157 all last year and am looking for a nice upgrade. I love to ride the trails and glades, and hit smaller rails and jumps. I want to get better in the park though, which is what brought me here to get some advice on what to do.

I am pretty set on getting a Rome board. I really want the Flag 163, but I am afraid that it might be too stiff for rails. I am also considering the Slash but I don't know if it will be good enough for those tougher trails and pow. I was also looking into the Manual but it seems a bit low end.

I found a nice 08 Flag with 07 Targas for a good deal. I was planning on getting the 390's. Will the Targas suit well with the type of riding I do?

Also, I plan on getting some Burton Hails.

Any Opinions or advice regarding any of this?
