Default need help finding a new board

Hey guys I have been riding for about 4 years now and am ready for a new board. I have an 06 darkstar 156. I am 5 11 and give or take 160lbs. I have boot size 10 in the burton hail. I am looking for a board that will let me have fun in the park, but will also hold up in high speed situations. I was wondering if any of you had some recommendations on size and board type. I have heard some good things about the v rockers but have not tried them out yet. I am hoping to get a board soon, but if I have to I can wait till next year. Do you think the progression of technology will be greatly improved in the rocker. I have a range up to around $450. Thanks

Get another Darkstar. If not then a Stairmaster Extreme, Indoor Survival, Bataleon Evil Twin, Believer, Nitro Swindle, or Rome Graft.

Thanks guys for the suggestions. The problem I have with my darkstar is that its flex is a little too stiff to jib, but besides that it has been a pretty decent board
