First Board Choice?

Hey, I am looking to buy my first board, I've been boarding for about three years now, going up to Falls Creek in Aus at least 5 times a season, had lessons basically every time and been going to the park too. I'm trying to decide between a DC Focus, Tone or Ply. from what I've discovered, the Focus is more of a beginners board and the Ply more all-round? What would you guys suggest?

I weigh 115lbs and i'm 5'7"
Boot size is 9.5
I ride the whole mountain
My budget is $650 for board, boots and bindings

Get new boots that fit well, go used board and bindings or look for on sale board and bindings.

That was my original plan, but all the gear I'm looking at is 50% off, so I can get any of those boards for half price and a pair of DC Scout boots and Burton Freestyle bindings

If you can stretch to the next binding up in the burton line which is the custom I would recommend that you do so - the freestyle has toe straps instead of toe caps which are on the custom. A lot people, me included hate toe straps.
