Board + Binding advise needed (K2 Parkstar?)

No, this is not a "WHAT'S THE BEST BOARD EVAH GUISE" thread, so no need to get your claws out.

After visiting some local dealers I got some recommendations for boards and bindings and now I wonder what you guys advise me to get. I've been boarding for 4 years now, every year 1 full week, so I would qualify myself as advanced/intermediate. All these 4 years I've been renting and I thought it was about time to get my own gear.

I'm looking for an all-mountain snowboard that allows me to tear up the pow but also let's me play on the pistes. I'm a fanatic jibber/noodler doing all kinds of flatland tricks on the pistes. Therefore I'm looking for a longer (156-160 cm) snowboard that is a true twin. Unfortunately, my lack of snowboards and bindings is so grave I don't really know where to start, besides the stuff I've been recommended by local dealers.

I've already got my own boots (size 42 euro, size 9 US male), so that's not a problem.

Price range: 500 euros max. Not that it will help very much since the euro is stronger than the dollar but prices here are higher than in the states.
Maybe something like the K2 Parkstar?

Are you actually instigating that I should try and find a good answer to a very specific question? Because if you are, you might want to reconsider I might've already did.

I wanted to say something else but I can't help but come off as offensive, and members on this forum are nicer and about x12 more helpful, so I'll let someone else fill you in on the search option .

And it's not a specific question by the way, its like asking what car is good for the highway...

And since you didn't specify your budget here you go, 160cm, its wide for your 42 clunkers should float just fine, and it's a directional twin because I sure as hell never rode pow switch, as for bindings, Unions are near indestructible and people swear by em, that will be $679.00, enjoy.
