Which board would mostly fit me

I'm like 5.8" and weight around 155lbs
Riding style = freestyle ride but i dont go in parks much, probably 20% in parks. Most of the time i just go in the terrains/trees and jump around or practice some tricks.

so which board would fit me more? for all terrain, but not. . .fully park style rider?

LibTech Banana Skate < but i heard itz more of a park board?
GNU R.C
or maybe the NM SL-R but i kinda want to try to mangne traction

or which board would anyone recommend more

thanks

Never Summer SL-R sounds like it would be a perfect fit. Don't need mtx when you have vario grip!

umm, i heard the nm SL-r is a bit heavier?
i was thinking a lighter board might be nice to have? or is there a reason why it's heavier?

I don't know what all the fuss about weight is. Get lighter bindings if you are worried about it. If those few extra grams affect your rotations you need to practice more, it's not the board. Never Summers are bomb proof and have a 3 year warranty so they may weigh a bit more then a china spec noodle!

FYI there is no such thing as MTX+BTX. It's Magne-Traction on cambered models (MTX) or Banana with Magne-Traction (BTX). I own BOTH technologies (NS Vario Grip and Magne-Traction) and they both work!
