Recommend me a snowboard

I'm in the market for a new board, but wouldn't mind a few suggestions on some potential purchases.
I've been riding for a good amount of time now(10+ years) at a pretty high level, I just don't really follow all of the new models and gear that comes out like a lot of you guys do... which is why I would appreciate the help.

My board I will be replacing is an older k2 darkstar, which I have been nothing but happy with.
Looking for something all-mountain/freeride, as I rarely ride park. The only other board that I have ridden somewhat recently, was a friends Forum(not sure of the model) which I didn't like very much... way too stiff.

Looking for something around a 162ish, and will very likely be going to a wide board now.
I've been thinking just to go with a 09 Darkstar since I like my old one so much... but I'm open to suggestions.
Thanks

if you like darkstars go with a darkstar. if it works dont fix it, but if you maybe want some rev camber you can go with the parkstar. if you want to try somethin different theres plenty of other all-mountain freestyle decks like a rome agent or a ride DH.

On the flip side if you'd like to try something else for a change, then you might look into Bataleon or Never Summer. Even Capita has some pretty sick boards.... With all the new technology in boards these days you may find something that fits you even better, or is just plain different from what you've been doing. Spice things up a bit ( =

Any thoughts on a Ride Antic?
