Help me organize a table of snowboards?
I'm buying a new snowboard and I'm trying to categorize them so that I have clearer selection.
I'm kind of a more All-Mountain guy but I'm trying to head to the park more often because of a friend. So I have 2 categoreis set up.
Boards like Skate Banana/Horrsocope are toooo soft for me.
Boards that are stiff as hell are not for me either.
1.More Freestyle oriented but still All Mtn friendly(softer)
-Bataleon Evil Twin
-NS Evo 4.0/Revolver
2.More All Mt friendly but less freestyle/jib/park(stiffer)
-Capita Indoor Survival FK/NAS/Totally Fk'n Awesome/Black Snowboard of Death
-NS Cobra/Proto HD
I've only researched these brands and thus only have knowledge of them.
I need help to add Ride/Rome/K2/Rossi/Salomon/Jones/Slash to these categories.
"Popular boards"(1 to 3 boards) are good enough as they're usually the ones in these categories(All-mountain, Park) as all too stiff or all too soft boards are usually not the most popular boards.
I've ruled out Lib Tech, Stepchild and GNU because they're from same company and I've owned their brand before and don't want to own it again(not that it was bad but I want to try a new board)

I think you'll probably be happy with any of the options you have listed and adding more will just make you decision more complicated .
I would instead try and decide if you want a true all mountain board or a park board capable of riding the whole mountain . My Evo has been nothing but excellent in every situation ( besides powder - hasn't been in pow ) that I've tried it in so far over 2 seasons .
Also, for park consider a Salomon Villain and all mountain a Salomon Sabotage
