A good freeride/all mountain board on a budget

I've been riding 15+ years and am good enough to handle anything in bounds in North America. In addition to powder, I like riding steep tree runs and other natural style terrain. I never ride parks but enjoy hitting rollers and dropping off the odd rock jump. I'm 6'1" 175 lbs with 10.5 boots and have been riding a Never Summer Premier 165 for a while. It's probably a little too big for me but I got a good deal on it. What I would like now is something a little smaller (160?) and a little more nimble for getting around in the trees a better and riding bumps a little more fluidly. I've always ridden traditional camber boards and only found out about this rocker business the other day, but I'm not against it if it may help me and the money is right. Any suggestions? I'm looking for a deal because I live in the southeast now and only ride once a year so any model where 2009/2010 stock is still out there would be great. The Ride Antic caught my eye but you can only get the cambered ones cheap if that matters. I've also seen Rome Anthems but I think they're regular camber, too. Thanks for the help.

If you're on a budget, the only one I can think of right now is Endeavor Guerilla and Ride Antic.

Also the K2 Raygun

@powdog: he's looking for a budget all-mountain, those 3 boards are pretty expensive I would say.

you're right, my bad, although the flagship is a good price for a high-end board

Also check out some of the YES models like the Basic and Typo (which I think is cheaper than the Dudes or Optimistic)
