I ended up going with the Burton Prophecy Reflex. The 2 materials used in them are the 11% glass filled (what the Malavita is made of) and the 30% glass filled (what the Cartel is made of), so my thinking is that they will ride like a nice combo of both. I have never been a Burton fan but they fit my Celsius boot extremely well and I really like the way they feel strapped in. I will post up a review of them, after riding of course.
Another note for anyone looking to pick up some Unions with the Stage III base plate (Atlas, SL, MC), the base is much larger than the Stage II base plate (Force). The l/xl Forces fit my boots and board very well but the l/xl SLs I tried were much larger and the base of the binding actually hung over the edge of my board by about a 1/4'' so those were automatically eliminated.
The Smokin Superpark is a really nice board. In the right size it could be a great do anything all-mountain freestyle board. I ride it a bit under sized as my park specific board. The magne-traction is a little more subtle than the Lib Tech version so it grabs well but doest overbite. The flex is nice and smooth with good pop. I have the Clash Rocker (CTX) version which is supposed to be rocker between the feet and camber in the tip and tail. The rocker profile is extremely subtle, after riding it for a couple weeks last year it was basically flat. The board has a lot of good tech, but none of it is overly obtrusive. I felt very comfortable on it from day one, its a very predictable and fun board. Plus its made in the states, has an awesome warranty and its likely that when you email Smokin you get a response directly from the owner (Smokin Jay), I did. I say go for it! If you have any other specific questions let me know.
