Default Need some advice regarding new board.

Hey guys.

So iv'e been out of the loop snowboarding wise for a couple months now. Not really sure which board would be right for me.

I live in Ohio so for about 60 % of my season i will be hitting some basic rails, medium jumps and just pure fucking around. About 20 percent of my season i will be riding around various resorts on the east coast from Jay peak to Holiday valley. The other 20% of the season i will be out west in Jhole and Utah. There i will be riding pow as much as possible. Cliffs, Tree's, any natural features.

What im looking for in a board.

- good edge hold for east coast ice

- can handle jib. Not really to important but i enjoy a boardslide here and there.

- can handle jumps. medium size.

- Quick edge to edge. I ride a lot of tight tree's in the east.

- Can handle pow, natural features, etc.

I know i'm asking a lot out of a board but o well.

What iv'e narrowed it down to

NS Proto

NS Evo

Arbor Blacklist

Arbor coda

I'm open to any suggestions. Also need some help on bindings. Appreciate any responses.!
