lander91 I can throw in a good word for the Roxy Ally, soft jib stick with full magnetraction. Never let me down in the domes where there's not much to do if you're not dicking about, and I've been using it for almost two years now.

Sounds like the sort of board you're looking for too, I'd go with something a little more solid if you're planning to hit kickers etc, but for flatland freestyle it's awesome.

GreyDragon As mentioned above, the Lib Tech TRS Narrows won a Good Wood award this year in the women's category.

And as also mentioned above, take the Good Wood list with a grain of salt. As linvillegorge points out, advertising revenues play into which companies get on the list.
I remember when they used to cover the top sheets so the testers didn't know which board they were riding. Burton never won a Good Wood award.
They stopped covering the top sheets, Burton started winning awards.
Hmm...

wrathfuldeity From stiffest to softer...rank order from my experience of demoing

Bpro = stiffest and has stiff part from bindings into the cam...really fun but u got to be aggressive and have some weight/heft to make it pop...not a dainty board for dainty riders

lady's choice = more of a gradual even flex from binding to nose/tail

roxy envy = even and softer flex, iirc is a bit torsionally looser comparative gnu's

bnice, idk current model...but loved the old cambered with mtx...really fun and poppy

lady's pickle, idk have not rode and not interested but I'd imagine fairly soft

My daughter has an old saloman lush...Jamie Anderson old pro model...its a stiffer cambered twin without mag...anyway she loves that board and has gone through two of them...wore the first one out and got another under warranty

sb60 I ride a Roxy envi which is comparable to the b-pro. More of an all mountain board, smooth riding but not a park board. The Roxy Ollie Pop is more flexible has rocker camber (rocker 2C) and magna traction, is made by Mervin who makes Gnu, etc. We don't have a lot of icy days, but when we do I am happy I have the magna trax. I don't notice it but everyone else is complaining and I can ride normally.

This is a link to this years, but they've had rocker c2BTX for a few years so you can pick up an older one cheaper.

i guess smaller guys can rock roxy boards too...
Only exception is Roxy makes a few board without magnetraction. If you want that tech make sure you buy a model with it. It's on most of them but there are a few exceptions (the Silhouette for example)

None of the libtech and Gnu boards are on the list.

Any recommendation for a board that has the features I want? Thanks.

Anyone tried the Gnu Ladies Pickle?
Not that I would consider TW GW to bea legit list but did you actually look at the list? Maybe do some more research and/or demo some boards. All the park boards there have rocker, and the Smokin has rocker and MTX. The arbor, NS, and Burton have their own magnetraction variants to deal with ice.
