Well each one has its ups and downs.

PhpBB3:
Pros:
• Professional
• CSS & Javascript customizing (only)
• Easy customization

Cons:
• No Template Editing
• Lower ACP Usage
• Bloated Coding
• More Complex
• Harder to customize


PunBB:
Pros:
• Template Editing
• HTML, CSS, and Javascript customization
• More ACP Access
• Less Complex

Cons:
• Some HTML knowledge needed (In certain cases)
• Fewer Features
• Editing templates for updates & such (In certain cases)


So really, this is all based on personal opinion on what you feel more comfortable with using. PhpBB2 vs PhpBB3 is a bit different though. Using PhpBB2 allows you to customize templates like PunBB but the templates are built a bit different and a bit more complex. Invision & PhpBB3 do not allow the editing of templates with HTML so that is the negative part of using these 2. I would just try testing all different types of softwares, when you find one you are more comfortable with using and have a better grasp on, go with that.
