Default New board

Hey guys I am looking for a new board and the more I research the more I get confused. Here is a little info on me

150 ish pounds
Size 12 boot
All mountain and a little park
Looking to stay around $500
I will be riding in So Cal primarly

I was looking at the Skate Banana but after research I dont know if it will be too soft. I have mainly been looking at the Lib Tech boards because the Magne-traction for icy conditions and the reverse camber and banana technology.

I want something easy to control thats stiff enough to ride everywhere yet soft enough to still do some park stuff. I am not a speed demon by any means and we dont really get deep powder here in so cal. So I am looking for a do it all board.

I really dont know if it is just the advertising or what but I feel that the Magne-traction is something I need haha.

I currently ride a Saloman Drift 152 which I know is a little short but it was the size I chose to go with and hasnt seemed to give me any problems I would like to stay around a 150-155 size

NeverSummer Evo or Rome Artifact '85. They both have a sort of edge tech that will help in icyness but are both better than the Nanner and PP. Evo is stiffer than the Artifact
