In you area, I'd look for some old circa 2005-07 top of the line Option, like a Northshore, Pintail, they are cambered but the highend ones made in Vancouver were built like tanks with good materials. A local splitter has been begging me for my Northshore 162...shovel-nose pintail that was my first pow board...a very decent pow board for 8" to 14-16" of fresh that does alright on the groomed except for a bit of rear leg burn in the further deep of 18"+; however if you were splitting it for deep poo, you might consider adding a bit of swallow tail cut. But ride it first before you split to see what you think.
On another note: Highly recommend the k clips to put it together.
