Default Board Recommendation Wanted

Height: 6'6"
Weight: 195lbs
Boot size: 14
Mountain ridden: Whistler
Years riding: 12

I'm looking to go riding more often and am in search of a new board. My current all mountain setup is a 183cm powder board with some extreme binding angles and I'd like to get something a little shorter and wider. I ride anything but park, but mainly stick to the backcountry with some occasional ass hauling on groomers.

Never Summer Titan TX sounds nice

1: Decide on what you wanna ride: park, all mountain, big mountain/powder
2: decide on level of desired performance: beginner(low response), intermediate(mid response), advanced(high response).
3: set a budget depending on how advanced of a board and the type of riding
4: find all the boards from all the companies that fit your criteria and pick the one with the coolest topsheet.

I swear I'm going to post this copypasta every time I see one of these threads.

With the type of terrain your wanting to ride allmtn/not park and the fact that you run high angles on your stance i think the titan tx(wider titan) is a great choice! Has a point on your budget they retail for $579. Another board i would reccommend is the never summer eritage xr. new for this year with rocker/camber giving you the best of booth workds' rocker for float and transition ease and camber for spring and edgehold. And never summer boards are by far the most stable at speed.
