Default Boards similar to the Burton Joystick?

Hey guys,

So I'm looking to get a Burton Joystick, but Sierra Snowboard seems to be out of stock right now. Of the other boards in my price range at the moment are:

Rome Graft
Burton Hero
Rome Crail
Rome Postermania

Of these boards, which one is more similar to the joystick? I'm looking for a board that allows a beginner to basically try out all facets of snowboarding, but mainly all-mountain riding. Thanks!

I've heard the Ride Machete is a good board for the purpose for which you intend to use it. Good board for general-purpose snowboarding. I have the Yukon, myself; I've been very pleased with it so far. I do only all-mountain, no freestyle.

By the way, what's the best size board for 5'8" and 160 lbs.

Burton Hero from your list...Only board that is close to the
joystick that I've tired is the Custom V-rocker.

Size 152-155 Bigger more stable and smaller quicker
