For $400 the Charlie Slasher simply cannot be beaten. It's not even like it's a cheap quality board at bargain prices. Like, seriously, what else could you even consider?
Jones Hovercraft is the same price, but that is a totally different ride. 260 waist width even on the 156. The nose is soooo long! The rocker/camber profile is nice, but the quality is a question mark. Especially on the ones made in Tunisia.
Burton Barracuda is more expensive. Great in pow, carves well. Bit soft for gnar but most of us don't need to worry about that too much. The rocker is a bit weird - on hardpack you have to make a point of pushing your front foot down to ride normally.
Lib tech La Nina - not a fan of the no edge on the nose or tail, also of lib selling extruded bases at premium prices
Burton Fish is awesome, but more expensive, and not so all mountain
