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.

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.

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

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.
