Default After 10 years I need a new board

Hello all of you.

I am from France and I have been riding for 15 years, unfortunately not on a regular basis, probably 10 days a year on average. I just registered on here to get some advice.

My present board is a Forum Peter Line 2001 159 Wide with 2006 P1 carbon and 32 lashed boots (I broke my original binding set Ride preston LX in 2006).
I like to ride everywhere, especially powder, hit jumps in the park and going mach 10 on the slopes, just rails I am not that into.
I am 6.1 feet (1m87) for 170lb and wear a size 12.

My board is getting tired and splitting in two halves... Even though I love it I think it's time to change. I have been looking around for this year's boards just to get inspired for next season. I would like to get a longer board than the 159 but not too long.

Here are the 2 choices sticking out to me:
Burton T6 164W (i found a 2008 version for 300$ sounds like a deal?)
lib tech Trice 161.5 and i'll have to wait until next year for that.

Feel free to tell me what your think. I don't have an infinite budget but I can pay 5 or 600 for a new board if that's worth it for the next 10 years...

Thanks to all.

I'm 184cm, 80kg and I wear 10.5cm boots. I've a 2010 lib tech Trice 161.5, it's a great board, great in powder (tested it in japan), groomers etc. I've never done park, but I'm planning to do some this year and I got myself more flexible board just for that, the trice is pretty stiff.

Overall I love this board. I was able to pick up speed a lot faster than other boardrs around me, especially on the flat bits were everyone was getting stuck, I was able to zoom past them.

Thanks for your answer. Is there any chance next year's T.Rice model is very different than this year's? What are the expected changes (if anyone knows)?
