Linville is dead on with that one. I'd say the Neversummer Heritage (or SL for next season), or Helix would be good fits for what you want. The Helix is a true twin splitboard. A little more of a noodle of course. Ed was on the Helix for my PNW trip and it seemed to handle just fine for his style.

I am excited for all the new split coming on the market. The thing is these are all first year efforts for most of these guys, while the others have been doing it for a long time now. There is something to be said for experience.

My solid Never summer SL does surprisingly well in pow in both directions. Ive also ridden a Smokin that was similar to the helix that uses Smokin's Dirt rocker and I find the float of the Never Summer RC Tech to be a lot less work on your legs to float with a centered stance.
My directional Venture however is unsinkable.
