Default Recommendations for a new all mountain board

It's that time of year when I start looking to snag some end of season deals to update the quiver. Just picked up a Revolver for a new park deck, now I'm looking to replace my '13 Capita DBX as my all mountain ride. Looking for something that has good edge hold and is stable at speed, can lay down a hard carve, and still has enough freestyle game for when I'm getting after bigger jumps than the Revolver can handle. I live in the Midwest so don't see much powder, but I want something that can hang when I head out west and for that reason I lean more toward a hybrid than traditional camber.

I really like the DBX, but it's only available in a 157 and I'd prefer something a bit bigger. My first thought is to just go to the Capita TFA, but I'm interested in hearing some other suggestions.

My stats: 6ft, 180lbs, size 12 boots

gnu metal guru.
Ive park lapped it for hours, went rippin down groomers (bout 58-60 according to ski tracks app). hit every jump mountains have to offer, short of the xgame size jumps, but im sure it would handle them. powder fields in the rockys and wasatch. Ice in the east coast.
I really like the ec2btx combo and wont ride another board without magne-traction.

Ride Buckup kills it for just about everything. Fun board for jumps as well. Camber dominate between the inserts with a little bit of tip and tail rocker.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm a camber fan and had always stayed away from Ride boards thinking their hybrid profiles were mostly flat. How is the edge hold on harder snow?
