Default Need An Alternate Board ... Recommendations?

My main axe is a Burton T6.

However ... the board is a Ferrari.

So, I'm looking for a second board on days when I just want to mess around, hit the trees (you don't take the T6 in the trees!), or be mellow (T6 when you're tired or early in the season can beat you up).

So, what is a good all mountain board that's mellower than the T6? I don't spend any time in the park, though I want to learn switch this year (I've been riding since 95 and have never bothered to learn switch ...).

FWIW: I've ridden the custom over the years and have never liked it. Always felt to clunky for my taste. I rode an OLD Burton twin and enjoyed that, but too much chatter at times.

Thanks!!!

I have no idea what you said in that paragraph. But my friend has a Rome Graft and he let me ride it once cause my board didn't come via UPS fast enough. And it was just. Amazing. Such a good board.

You spent that much on a board you can't ride? I can understand a park board, but if you can't go in the trees with your board maybe time to trade it in

Anyone who takes the T6 and its aluminum fly core into the trees is an idiot.

Anyone with a helpful response?
