Default Need buying advice for new (2008) freestyle board

Hi guys, I'm looking to buy a new freestyle board for this season. I like the burton dominant (I've riden onde myself), but this year's grafics kinda suck. I've checked out capita's stair master but I'm not sure of the board's quality. Maibe I'm going for the nitro t2. I'm kinda lost here. Please give me your opinions of these and other boards.
Thanks

Nitro T series is a bit on the stiffer side for park boards, which means they work great on jumps. Capita boards are also kick-butt. Other possible contenders: Atomic Hatchet, Rome Artifact/Agent, Ride Kink/DH.

I've never riden atomic or ride before, so I think I'll give it a go this time. witch one do you prefer? Are they good boards?
Thanks for your time
Best Regards

If you want to stick with Burton the Blunt is worth checking out, also another good choice would be the Gnu Rider's Choice.

yea, but I can´t find it (I'm in europe). I've sold my old one two seasons ago, for me is the best freestyle/jib board that I've riden so far (Burton Dominant 150). So I want it back for this season since I'm starting in competition I need a reliable board
Do you really think that the blunt is a good choice?
thanks for the reply everyone
