More board advice

Hi,

I am looking to invest in a board. I'm 5'7", 210 lbs. I've been boarding for about 2 years now and am an intermediate boarder. I was thinking of getting an all mountain board like the rome anthem or the burton custom. Are there any others that I should be looking at? Also, is it worth praying that one of these will show up on steep and cheap?

Thanks for your help.

Burton clash / custom / whatever.... about length of 160 for park / packed piste, up to 166 for powder riding

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Thanks! I was thinking around 160, but wanted to check since this is my first board.

What do y'all think of illuminati boards? Which would you recommend for me? At my current level i dont think i am going to be going off piste for a while...still need to work myself up to blacks and double blacks...which will take a couple of years since i only get to go for a week each season.

Thanks again.

I have a Rome Design 164 that I love. Great all mountain board.
