Freestyle Boards

Hello. I've been snowboarding for three years, and I need a new board.

Preferably freestyle. I'm roughly 120 pounds, 5 and a half feet tall, and I ride around a 155. I can go plus or minus, preferably to the plus if it comes down to that.

In a board, I'm looking for something that can do everything (pretty much);

- Rails, boxes
- Smaller jumps, more kickers
- Drops
- Powder
- Backcountry riding, something with durability yet flexibility
- Turning

Feel free to suggest something that compromises a few of these, but seems somewhat appropriate.

Now, I've been looking around. These are some choices I found, and I'd like your opinion on these, or other boards that fit the description.

500$ is around as much as a want to spend, but that can change if it's worth it.

Arbor Mystic
Burton Elite/Dominant/Custom
Rome Anthem
Lib Tech (one that has the TRS - I'd only buy one if it had that, I'm somewhat biased against the look of their boards..... aesthetics count for something, right?)

Anyways, it'd be really appreciated if you guys could help me out on this. I have a good pair of boots and bindings (Burton boots, and Burton Mission bindings).

Thanks.
