Default New season, new board.. help with a park board

Been awhile so I'm a bit rusty on my snowboard gear but as of now I ride a Lib-Tech T.Rice 157 '08 I think is the year. That's my all-mountain board and I use it for shreddin down mountains/carving/etc.

This year, I'm actually looking for a board that is more situated towards park, more so jumps and buttering and a bit of jibbing I guess

I've considered the skate banana but its so popular nowadays. I've been quite interested in Never Summer boards and heard tons of great stuff about Rome boards as well..

Anyone wanna suggest me a board? Skate Banana is probably the ideal board for me but I'm open to suggestions of boards that are comparable to the skate banana.

BTX is characteristicaly unstable on jumps. That's what you get out of a center reverse without any re-camber. Evo will better, Parkstar, CAPiTA Indoor FK, or a Rook.

so the boards you mentioned are more suited towards jumps correct? Any other suggestions from other brands?

They're all midstiff park boards. If you want some other suggestions look at Arbor Westmark, Rome Graft Rocker, Salomon Acid, Burton Easy Livin FlyinV (if they didn't change the way it rode from 2010), Signal Park, or maybe the Stepchild JP pro

so if i wanted a board that does well with jumps and can butter fairly well, what would you suggest? Buttering on my t.rice is quite difficult honestly
