2009 Never Summer SL-R or what all-mountain snowboard? ( <$350)
So season has already started and I'm looking for a board to satisfy my all-mountain riding needs. I'm looking for a versatile board that will do it all. When I board, I usually hit groomers, tree runs, fresh pow runs, and jumps off natural kickers. I haven't really hit the park yet, but I wouldn't mind a board that will allow me to progress into the park either. (Doesn't necessarily have to be great at it, I'm moreso aiming for the all-mountain aspect). Riding a 2010 Atomic Axum, I have found that my edge hold in ice completely sucks, and my edge to edge ability isn't as quick as I want it to be (could be the fact that it's a 155).
I'm 140-145ish lbs, 5'5, with size 7-7.5 feet.
So I'm looking for a board to satisfy all the above, and I am currently able to pick up a barely used 2009 never summer sl-r 151cm snowboard for around $350. (Not entirely sure if it's worth it, but never summer boards around here are usually in the $400-$600 price range and this comes with 3 year warranty).
Would this board be a good option for me considering my size and what I plan to use it for?
Any suggestions for other good all-mountain snowboards that are under or equal to $350?
I live in Canada as well, so some of my buying capabilities are hindered fom some online retailers.
It would help me out a lot if you threw me a link to your suggestion, but you don't have to.
P.S. If anyone is selling / knows where I can pick up a 2009 or 2010 Never Summer SL-R 151cm for less than $350, let me know.

Is that brand new? If so, that's not a bad price. Get it before it's gone.
