Default Help add to the quiver

saw my first snowflakes of the year today and i'm chomping at the bit to ride. just moved up to NH from RI so my riding should increase dramatically....looking to get 75 days in. so with more riding i'd like to pick up another board to goof around on. here's some background so you can help me out:

been riding for 13 years and can pretty much hang with anybody. definitely not an expert, but consider myself an advanced rider. enjoy the trees, steeps, pow and hit kickers when i can find them. spend little to no time in the park, but have fun when i do.

currently i ride an option freeplus 159 that i love. stiff, grips hard, floats in pow and can take a beating. what i'm looking for is a board that will still handle the all-mountain, but be a little more fun when i'm goofing off or hitting the park. I'm 5' 10" 175 lbs. and want something in the 154/155 range.

I've narrowed it to a couple choices:

Lib-Tech TRS BTX

GNU Carbon Credit Series BTX

Bataleon Omni (shortest is a 159...bummer)

the only thing really holding me back is magne-traction. i've riden it and really like it, however i've been able to handle the ice coast for over a decade so while its awesome, its not necessary. i think the Bataleon TBT looks awesome and really fun, but only comes in a 159. i guess i just need some convincing. that's where you guys come in. thanks

I would actually say a Goliath over an Omni. I would also look at the K2 Slayblade, CAPiTA Quiver Killer, Nitro Team Gullwing, or a Neversummer Legacy-R

5'10" 175, a 159 would be a great all-mountain board for you. Or you could try a Bataleon Jam 157.

with lib-techs banana tech does anybody know if when you're standing on the board on flat ground are the tip/tail contact points off the ground?
