New Board Recommendations
 
I have recently started looking for a new board, and looking for suggestions. I have been riding a rossi scope 154 for the past 4 yrs, and have become unhappy with the performance. Looking for something that will carve harder, and not shutter. I recently replaced my old bindings with Burton Missions, and will utilize these with the new board. The conditions in Michigan are groomed, hard pack, and icy. I don't do much park riding. Had thoughts of Burton Custom, Atomic Radon, looking for suggestions. Thank you in advance.

Height - 6'0"
Weight - 190 lbs
Level - Intermediate
Conditions - Hard Pack, Icy Trails

Could have been shuttering because you're too heavy for the board... check around there's tons of threads on this kind of thing, you might want to consider MTX or something similar (like NS Vario power Grip) since you ride ice.

I ride in NC where fresh pow is rare. I would suggest a board with BTX (Banana Rocker, BTX & Magna-traction, MTX) because they are a lot better in the kind of conditions that you and I face. I ride a Skate Banana right now (previously a GNU Altered Genetics with just MTX) and it handles significantly better than a standard camber board.
