I'd look at:
rome mod rocker
k2 happy hour
gnu carbon credit
gnu riders choice
(they are all slightly different board types, you seem to want an AM quiver killer)
I really think you'd appreciate the ease of whipping around a 157/158 compared to a 160+

I'm 6'1, 200lbs, sz 11.5 boot… I prefer to ride a 154-157, my most used board is a 152.
When it comes to board size for you, I'd stick at or just or under 160. If you plan to do free riding/AM, I wouldn't go too short. Its so much a matter of preference, strength, feel, board profile, rider style… its hard to say what would work best. I will say this though… I've taught a lot of friends and family how to ride, what I noticed most was how beginners confidence grew much more rapidly on a rocker, slightly shorter board. It seems as though they were able to initiate turns fast, worry less about catching an edge, and inevitably progressed much faster than those who battled through a fully cambered longer snowboard.

First Board help!
Hi, I'm trying all day long to decide what board to go for, I'm worried to make a bad decision please help:
I've 6'3, 200lbs - boots 12, tired to spend money and time renting...
I almost bought a GNU Carbon Credit BTX 159... but I'm worried if it's too small for me... so I decide to look more, and now I'm really confused... so here is the boards that I'm looking:
Gnu - Carbon Credit BTX 159
Ride Wild Life 161
Rome Tour Wide 161
Rossignol One Magtek Midwide 161
What do you guys think?
