Good intermediate board?

hey all - im new to this forum, though i've been reading for a while and you guys seem to have some good advice. Im looking to upgrade snowboards, i currently have an older Burton bullet, (which is for sale if anybody wants it)and im thinking of going up to the 09 burton custom, with or without the ICS bindings. I'd consider myself a decent snowboarder. I havent ventured into the park as of yet, but i'd like to, so im looking for a board that can do multiple things well. Any suggestions about the custom or any other boards? thanks..

Oh, and im about 5'11, weigh about 175 and wear a boot 10.

Never Summer SL-R was pretty nice, but I found the Hero seemed to ride somewhat similar if you wanted to stick with Burton. The Custom would be stiffer than the Hero from what I'm told (never tried the custom)

If you're a big baller, shot calla', Lib Dark Series. Either MTX or BTX. However you prefer your bling.

SL-R if you can still find them, alot of places are sold out of all but a few sizes now. So if you do find one your probably going to be stuck paying full MSRP ...they were on sale at most shops for 20-30% off at one point a month or two ago...

I did find this if you do care in your size
