When you say set back you mean the general placement of the bindings being further towards the back of the board right? I ride less switch than a skier does (lol).

Yep the inserts are setback to match the sidecut. I would go with the Goliath. or Funkink. For an all mountain stik. When and if you decide you would like to try park/pipe riding you will be good to go. All specs are listed for setbak. Twins are centered, directional twins are slightly setback, directional boards are setback even more with Pintail.. (taper) wider softer nose, and stiffer tapered tail.

The thing is I've been riding for 10 years and the park isn't my thing at all. I like glades, the further into the heart of the woods the better. But I will do a run here and there when all of the kiddies aren't out there and hit a couple 15 footers. I'm anxious to demo theses boards next year.

Bataleon's sickest board next year, no doubt about it.

I rode one this year believe it was the goliath. the graphics were pretty lame with nothing but squares and triangles. it rode ok, kind of soft and easy to turn, but it wasn't any better in any one thing than any other board i've ridden. i honestly don't get it when they say it does everything better than a flat based board. that's just straight up bullshit.

If you're not a big park rider, the Jam would be good in your case. Very fast, and quick edge to edge.
