Default Need some advice on intermediate board.

Let me start off by saying hello! Your forum has helped so much with my research so far. I am a intermediate boarder, have about 7 days on the mountain over 2 years, (Breck and Canyons) with two lessons each year. Last year I got it much better and was flowing down the greens and some blues having alot of fun. I told myself that before the next season I was going to have to buy my own boarding gear if I were going to make it an every year thing. I have a ski trip coming up in Febuary with some friends but am going to sharpen my skills in November and end of December so I can hang with my friends.

My dimensions:
172lbs
5'11"
9.5 Shoe

I don't care to do any tricks, butters, jibs or anything in a park or halfpipe. I am having a great time cruising down the mountain but want to go somewhat faster. Never done deep powder, just powder when there had been good snowfall on the run. Need something that can handle well and carve on hardpack and moderate powder....perhaps the deep stuff off country when I get better. Also, want it to be stable but not crazy stiff. Like Ricky Bobby said, I wanna go fast!

I have looked at a ton of boards and all the different bend types and the info can be kinda hard to follow but I think I have it narrowed down to a few boards. Tell me what you think please!

Thanks SBF!

Also open to other suggestions inside or outside the brands however I am pretty biased to the graphics! The more confident the better right? Haha.
