Default Next board?

Anyone got suggestions for my next board - or just awesome deals going on now?

I had a K2 Raygun 161 (stolen at Reno airport), then a Slayblade 158 (destroyed by baggage handlers)

I loved the flex and ease of ride of the Raygun. Could spin and play in the park or pipe, jumps were easy - just overall, an easy board. 161 felt like a comfortable size.

The Slayblade - I got as someone on here found a friggin awesome deal for like 65% off w/ a code at tactics.
The slayblade was far easier to get speed from, but harder for butters - less flex and less forgiving. Still nice for jumps and pipe.
The 158 size felt OK, perhaps more maneuverable on moguls, but harder in the deep pow CO got this last few weeks.
The board's waist might have been a bit small.


Are there any awesome deals goin on now w/ comparable boards, or just general good all mtn boards (that work w/ regular Rome 390 bindings)?
Nice discount codes for proboardshop, etc?
