New all mountain board advice

I've narrowed a few choices for a new board but would be grateful for some advice, so...

I'm 5'11" 170lbs and want an all mountain board as I probably spend 70% piste, 25% off piste and 5% easy park. Currently have 32 Prion FT boots (size 8) and Rome Revolt bindings. My current board is a very old Santa Cruz board which has served me well in the five years I've been boarding but I definitely need an upgrade now as my riding has continued to improve.

I've been looking at the following;

Nitro 38 Special
Capital DoA
Rome Agent
Salomon Super 8

From the looks of the specs and the reviews I've been able to find all these boards seem to fit my needs, I'm leaning more towards the Nitro and Salomon at the moment.

Thanks for any tips people are able to share.

Being a park rat i dont know much for all mountain boards but when i was looking the Salomon Super 8 was high on my list of options but i ended up going with the K2 Carveair. From what i read though the Super 8 sounded like a solid board and my buddy is actually considering it now.

From Capita I would say the Mercury or NAS. From Rome the Mtn Division. The Super 8 might be a good option, but I haven't ridden it and don't personally know anyone that has. I'm not all that familiar with the Nitro line anymore.

I would add the Ride Berzerker, Niche Story, or a K2 Turbo Dream.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
