Burton vs Rome vs Forum? Help...

Which of the following boards would you guys recommend I go with...

1) 2010 Rome Crail
2) 2009 Forum Symbol
3) 2006 Burton Custom

I'm an intermediate level rider looking for a good all mountain board. I spend a little more time out of the park than in it. I'm 6' tall, 170lbs, and have a size 10 boot. All boards are going to run me about the same price.

Thanks for the input!!!

while i dont know the symbol, the crail is softer than the custom and the crail has a setback, unlike the custom which is true twin. the custom also holds more weight.

The custom is new, not used... but the fact that its an 2006 is why I'm hesitant.

Wow, so far a ton of love for the Crail!

I was under the impression it was more of a freestyle board than all-mountain. My biggest concern is how it holds up at high speeds, and how well it carves?
