I'm trying to now focus on buttering - not as much on rails and jumps, although I definitely do some of that.

My stats:

Weight: 155/160 lb.
Height: 5'8''
Boot Size: 10.5/11 (maybe get a mid-wide?)
Riding style: currently free riding, would like to switch to free style. Ride switch a lot, butter, and do some rails.
Age: 24
Location: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York Areas
Started riding around 7 years ago, then stopped for 2 years (injury.) This winter I've started up again, been trying to go every weekend.


Some of the ones I was looking at, but have yet to try out:

1) Bataleon Whatever Bataleon
2) Bataleon Evil Twin Bataleon
3) Bataleon Riot Bataleon
4) Rome Crossrocket Rome CrossRocket Snowboard | Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate 2013 (this one looks awesome...)

Any other suggestions would be great.

Thanks for taking the time.
Have not rode it but have not heard good things about the Crossrocket. Almost all reviews have said it is weird or flat out sucks.

Rome has a ton of buttery decks. Even the Boneless which you are supposed to downsize.
