Advice on my top three skis
Metal in a ski doesnt automatically make it an expert only ski. The blizzard Rustler 9 has some metal but is super accessible, it's still wider than you need. I would recommend getting Dynastars that you liked for low tide conditions and just rent/demo fat skis if you happen to catch those conditions when you travel. I'm not a fan of the Kore skis for resort skiing, they are a tricky combination of light and stiff

Look Good, Play Good
I would tell anyone looking at these skis that are in between sizes like me to think about sizing down, as I was able to get much more control than I believe I would have going the other way. But I don't think there is a bad choice when it comes to any of the Atomic Bent collection.
