Your "test board" looks very much like the Evil Twin Classic just with different graphics. I think they sold it until the 2011 or 2012 season. Since that time they have altered the board quite a bit, especially the shape of tip and tail.

The ET classic was a nice board but it's heavier than the newer Bataleons (that aren't exactly featherweight either) and the new shape, as it is on the Goliath 2012, is better.

My suggestion: Get a 2012 Evil Twin. It suits your riding style and is better than the "outdated" ET Classic. Or get the Goliath but be aware that it is stiffer than the ET (which isn't exactly soft either) and might have a little less performance on boxes but gets you around the mountain easier.
