time for a new board

im 6'4" 225 and size 13 boot. this is my second year riding but im improving very rapidly. im looking for an all mountain board under 300 preferably. im looking for a fun board with good flex and pop(mind you not so much flex that it cant support my size), i like to hit boxes, jumps, and natural features, but i love the pow when i get the chance. also i want something thats gonna be stable at high speeds.

i have been checking out/ pointed in the direction of these boards...capita scaremaster, gnu chb mtx, capita black death, nitro art attack, k2 darkstar.

please add others or give me suggestions.


ps- i know there are 10098798724987980734 threads like this so only post if you wanna help as i have done for others in the past. thank you

I have been riding the GNU CHB MTX the past couple weeks. I personally like the MTX. I detuned the effective edge more than I normally would with a new board, and it still holds edge better than other boards I've ridden. I kept trying to wipe the board out from under me but I just couldn't.

The MTX is nice for warmer days or east coast conditions. It's also nice for park boards because you can really tune down the edge for jibs. The carbon fiber gives it great pop, and it controls well at higher speeds. It's a great all-around board, but you'll find drastically varying opinions. There's always resistance to new things or changes.

I think for an all-mountain board with the performance you're looking for, you may be hard-pressed to find it under $300 unless there's a really good deal.

Check out ride's lineup - DH2 is what I have and it's an amazing all-mountain board, it tears up anything I throw at it. It cost me $450 but has been worth every penny.

edit: I just noticed you said you wanted pop & flex... The DH2 is the poppiest board I have ever ridden, and because of the pop-stix tech it has flex in the right places.
