best park board for east coast?

Hey trying to buy a new board.. but I'm having trouble deciding what tech to go with since its hard to find demos over here on the East Coast. Basically narrowed it down to: evil twin or riot with TBT, the SL or evo with RC, or something with traditional camber, like the jibpan. I'm getting more into park, but mostly going off small - medium kickers instead of rails. So I'm just wondering if you guys have any insight, I've read reviews on all three but I'm still having trouble deciding. Thanks in advance.

BTW I'm 5'10 and 155 lbs

Id go with the riot, I own a bataleon and I love it. it will be good all around and you can use it on jumps, rails or just cruising

I have the evil twin and live on the east coast. Absolutely love the board . Perfect for park and general all mountain riding on the east coast. Makes me want to get the undisputed in a larger size for when i hit up some really steep terrain and deep powder, next year that is lol.

NS evo-r....just order one and cant wait to try it out. I live on the East Coast. I rode an SL-R and Revovler-R (Wide version of Evo) they both worked fine for me on the ICE coast.

hmm darkninja or anyone else who rides an evil twin.. do you feel the difference with the extruded base? i read a review and heard it was noticeable, but it still seems to be an issue when i want to go fast. and which do you guys think will have better pop? the tbt or the evo?
