New all mountain board required

Right I'm after a new all mountain board to replace my Nidecker Legacy which has seen better days. Have looked at the Slash Brainstorm today and it's not wide enough for my size 11's (UK). I'm a big fan of the rcr on the Nidecker so would like the same camber profile something around the 157-159 mark with sight setback. Any ideas folks?

Been browsing the interweb tonight and have come up with the Rome Mountain Division and the Ride Highlife UL as contenders. I found BA's reviews on his site just wondering if anyone else has tried them and any thoughts on them? Cheers.

Had read about the bdx but nowhere seems to stock it in the UK.

I can't give you a personal recommendation as I don't have much experience with aggressive all mountain boards, however if you are looking for a hybrid camber profile in that category here are some boards I see frequently recommended: Yes PYL, Jones Flagship, Rossignol One/XV, Salomon Man's Board. Hopefully someone else can chime in on this, but I would think you will have better access to most of those boards where you live.

From what I've read and been told about the Jones Flagship and the Rossignol One/XV they're quality charging boards but hard work when it gets chopped up.
