Default Need suggestions for a new board; ride concept or rome anthem?

I'm in the market for a new board and all I really need is a freeride board that is extremely light, fast, and has the ability to carve well. I've checked out lots of brands and their top "lightest" boards including Rome's Design, Ride's Concept TMS and UL, Palmer's honeycomb 4, burton's vapor, etc. I'm quite interested in Ride's concept series. I've ridden a Palmer honeypro and I loved it. A lot quicker lighter than my other salomon so for my next board, I decided that I would look for something that is somewhat similiar to the Palmer Honeypro. Like I said, I really like Ride's concept series but do the boards meet what I'm looking for?

I've searched this entire forum for reviews and personal opinions on the boards listed above. Many people suggest the Rome Anthem and I'm willing to consider it. I hardly go to the jump park so I do not need a freestyle board.

I don't want to be spending more than $600 on the board itself. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to voice your opinion in this thread. Thanks

[EDIT] I also forgot to mention my stats.

age 16
weight 150
style: regular, all mountain/free-ride
boot size: 10

If you liked a Palmer then you'll love everything else.

So I'm guessing that the Palmer doesn't really live up to people's standards of a good board. I was thinking more about it and I'm quite interested in lib-tech and their banana technology. Their skate banana looks awesome but I've been hearing some stuff about the board feeling wimpy at high speeds.

Like I said, I don't go to the park or anything. I'm more of a freerider and speed/lightness in a board is what I'm really into and the ability to ride well in pow would also add as a plus. Any suggestions?
