Default Freeride board recommendations

Hello all,

I'm in the market for a new board and am looking for suggestions.

I've been snowboarding since 1988 and have found that I prefer longer stiff boards. For the past few years I have been riding an Arbor Woodie Wide 169, which I believe was a precursor to the Roundhouse Wide. The Woodie carves like a demon, but it's length and weight make flipping it around in the steeps a pain in the ass.

So, I'm looking for a stiff camber board that carves well, available in a wide versions for my size 13 feet, around 165 cm in length.

This past weekend I rode 6 different Burton boards over two days at mount Hood. Conditions were perfect and I was able to get a good sense of what e boards felt like. At the end if it all I liked the Custom x Wide 164 the most.

So, if anyone can offer recommendations as to what other boards I might consider (along with the custom x and arbor roundhouse) please let me know.

Thanks!
