Default First new board in 5+ years

I am thinking of picking up a new board and would really appreciate some thoughts and suggestions.

I was a pretty avid snowboarder between 99 and 2002, but haven't been active since.

Skill wise I'm an above average mountain rider and used to race slalom/gs, though barely competent in parks. I can pull simple grabs and rotations off small kickers.

Height : 5'11
Weight : 175lbs
Size : 11.5

My riding style is all-mountain, but I really want to progress into more advanced park riding. Living on the east coast riding groomers isn't all that exciting anymore.

I am trying to stay low, price wise, since in addition to a new board I also need to eventually upgrade my boots, pants, jacket and pick up a helmet. That said, I'm willing to spend on the right piece of equipment.

Boards I've considered : NS Legacy, NS Revolver, Capita mid-life, Burton Blunt [good price], Skate Banana

camber/rocker/rc/fk : Honestly, this is all new to me, lol :P

Currently ride a 156
