Question All mountain snowboard. Gullwing, Sherlock or Jones mountain twin?

Hello everybody, first post here, been reading the forum for a while though. Im from Finland so you have to appologies my french.

Having difficulties on decideing which board to choose. Im looking for an all mountain board which would have to be stiff enough for some speed and have a rocker/chamber shape (chamber underneath bindings) for pow and pop. So at the moment i have narrowed my options to these 3; Nitro Team Gullwing, Burton Sherlock and the Jones All Mountain Twin.

But i have some concerns about these boards. Im not sure if i want the Sherlock because of the ICS-system, not a big fan of getting locked into one manufacturer. Otherwise been reading only good reports about this board.

About the Gullwing, is it too loose? i heard/read its a fast board, especially in pow. but i'we also read that for some its too loose.

Then about the Jones all mountain. It has the stiffnes i want but has it the pop i want?

So im asking, if you could give me some pointers/advice on these boards. Have you ridden any of these boards? Whats your opinion.

The Sherlock will probably be my next board, ive been hearing great things and it suits your criteria well. I just need to grab one and take it for a demo then decide. I already have a couple of ICS boards tho so I am already locked in to Burton unless I want to get new bindings as well, which I don't. Because I have grown quite fond of the ICS system and I like my bindings as they are.

Do you have a set of bindings already? If you have a pair that you like then dont bother with the Burton, but if you are hunting for a completely new setup then it will be a good option.
