What board should i buy?

I'm still deciding between the Rome Design, Elan Vertigo, Burton Custom X. I am Looking for a great all-mountain board that has great speed! I love going fast! So hard to decide the Rome Design feels great ,but i still like the Elan Vertigo and Burton Custom. I can't decide...

Here are some of the features

Rome Design
Airpop Core Matrix
Ultralight with model-specific bamboo-powered pop
CarbonBiax 2D Laminate
Pure carbon equals pure pop that’s pure lightness
SinterCarbon.2 Base
More carbon=less friction=more speed
AC Technology
Air channels for greater lightness
Impact Plates™
2.5 times stronger under foot
Dual Inline PowerAmp Mapping
Double the tip and tail pop, with high energy release off edge
LDC Technology
Low-density woods in low-stress regions of the core to reduce weight
Edge Bevel: Mountain (-1° base/-1° side)
All the edge power you expect, with just enough bevel to eliminate twitchiness
Positive Camber
Traditional positive camber delivers dynamic energy release from edge to edge and a ton of pop in the nose and tail

Elan Vertigo
The Vertigo is straight up tough. Dual Ti Technology for makes this the strongest snowboard in the world! Combine that durability with a torsionally stable flex and a directional shape and you get superior handling for aggressive ridng. And add in the super fast Warp 8 Nano Carbon Base and you have the perfect boarder cross machine or all mountain bomber.

Burton Custom X
Driven by the cream of today’s freestyle crop—Frederik, Kazu, Peetu, and Marko—the Custom X™ is the lightest, fastest, and snappiest wood core board on the planet. From massive airs, to face-melting speeds, and big spins into small spaces, this super-tuned version of the legendary Custom attacks with precision. NEW Lightning Bolts radiate outward from the Channel, creating zero lag time between you and your edges.

So what should i buy?

alo Banja Luka,

nisam probao ove daske o kojima pricas ali jesam probao Nitro Prolight i daska je aaaaaaaaaaaaaaavion!

inace, ja ne bih NIKADA kupio dasku a da je ne probam na stazi - osim ako je bas ne nude za neku relativno smesnu cenu, npr. 100-150 dolara.

probaj te daske pre nego sto kupis jer jedanput kada kupis onda ces to da vozis bar neko vreme.

If you want a pure bombing all-mountain stick, the Custom X is one gnarly stick. It's pricey, but there is no denying it's greatness for speed. And it's camber! I've demoed a lot of boards and the Custom X remains on the top of my all-mountain stick list.
