What deck out of this list should I pick?

Hello!
I was going to buy a snowboard setup this year, but right now I don't have enough money. This summer I most likely will be able to buy one and there will be sales too so... I know I will be a walking burton billboard, but I've decided on a burton board/binder combo.-PS: I am still growing. I am 5 foot 6, size 9 mens skate shoe, intermediate, and I like to ride park(75-86 percent of the time) but I also would like a snowboard that will not die outside the park and has lots of pop. (I guessing all mountain freestyle but mostly freestle)some questions I have:Which is the minimum waist width I could get away with do you think?Would a burton a burton farm or operator be to small a waist width?

Decks:
Uninc
Hero
Jeremy jones
Right now I'm leaning towards a hero.
Thank you and have fun riding!

well are you a jibber? the uninc is pretty stiff, the jones is about medium for a park board, the hero is soft. only burton?

Out of those I would say hero but not sure why you are limiting yourself to just burton boards. There are a lot of other brands out there that will have what you are looking for.

I can get them cheaper and I just like their gear/are a fan of burton. Please don't flame me!

I do like jibbing, but I like the jumps and stuff as well.

no need to flame, burton makes good stuff but it is restricting, limiting yourself to one company. i would go for the hero, its the most versatile board in their line and it should tear up jibs..

Meh...depending on your reasons, you are just as bad as someone that only buys Burton.

I think I will go with a hero. I was going to get a Rome but you know how the 09 artifact's graphics are... Thank you for the help. Does anyone here have problems with the 09 cartels foward lean? I've heard they have to much.

Again, this will depend on what you like. I have 390's and have to increase the lean a few notches depending on the type of riding I'm doing that day. I've ridden some Burton Triads (not sure if the lean is similar to the Cartels) and the forward lean when set at the minimum felt about the same as how I ride the 390s.

So if you want very little forward lean, the Cartels may not be a good choice.

if you like very little forward lean, the cartels would be just about the most awful choice there is..along with most of burtons bindings..
