Park board for $260

Im looking for a park board thats gonna do great on jibs/rails but also well on medium size kickers, like 20 ft. If possible it would be nice to have something thats not going to just be completely too squirelly on the mountain. Not saying that I'm going to be riding it down the mountain that much. I just don't want it to wash out at higher speeds. I'm trying not to spend more than $260

I am currently using an Atomic Hatchet to do all those things and I couldn't be happier. Rode in icy conditions today and came out almost unscathed.

2009 BURTON HERO SNOWBOARD Snowboards Mens All Terrain

??

I tend to stray away from rails so I don't have any experience with a hero on them, but when I used the hero it was quite good on kickers and performed excellently on ice. Also FWIW, other people say the hero is good on rails

Everything's real cheap at this time of the season. Do a froogle.com search

Common am/fs boards:

Burton Custom
Rome Agent
K2 Darkstar
Capita Stair/Scaremaster
Atomic Hatchet

EDIT: that hero's pretty sick if you don't mind being forced to ride Burton bindings.

capita stair/stairmaster. custom is abit stiff and directional for a park board, good if your 50%-50%.
agent would be perfect.

dogfunk has jibpans for around that much right now. One of the best park boards of all time.

I have the Others Hatchet model and I agree... I was actually surprised at how well it handled speed too!

I just saw a hatchet for $100 and I'm thinking of getting another one. I'm actually in the market for a more all mountain board, but I've been able to get some versatility out of this Hatchet....
