Looking for an aggressive all mountain board (something similar to the Capita DOA)

I'm looking for an all mountain snowboard that I can use for groomers, side hits, tree runs, jumping over small rocks or cliff drops, slack country, park jumps (just s/m/l), and some boxes/rails. Basically... everything other than back country and deep pow

I used to ride a 2013 Capita Defenders of Awesome, that was my first camber board in a long time and I loved how much more aggressively I can ride with control on a variety of terrains. Unfortunately I broke the board within 3 months and now need to find a replacement...

I don't want to spend too much (under $250 hopefully), so current year models seem a bit too expensive for me. I've considered the Rome Agent, the Ride DH, Burton Custom, or the Capita Outsiders. But it seems like the Defenders of Awesome is still the best option.

Somehow I trust this site more than any other review site! Please let me know what you guys think?

Stuff similar to the DOA that will likely hold up a bit better: Flow Shifty, Yes Jackpot, or a Rossi Retox.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Thanks! All of these boards look like great choices, they'll open up my options a bit more.

Although Capita hooked me up with an offer that is hard to refuse as well. Capita Outsiders 156 for only $230. That looks like a solid deal for me.
