Evil Twin or Skate Banana or Evo-R

Looking for a new board since mine is falling apart after 4 seasons. I'm interested in Bataleon Triple Base Tech or some combo rocker tech.

I'm a fairly advanced rider, hit the park from time to time, boxes and kickers (maybe 30% of my riding) and the rest is all mounting, but poping off rollers and spinning off natural terain. I want something that lets me bomb groomers and is forgiving enough to let me land slightly off from my spins. I also like buttering around.

I'm on the east coast and riding smaller icy hills, so powder performance is a non-factor as I at most go to BC once every year or two.

Any suggestions would be great. I'm also looking at the Capita Horrorscope. Evo-R isn't available anywhere near me, so unless I can find a deal online its probably out.

I am on the same boat.

Those are all great choices. The horrorscope will be too soft for kickers and not so great on east coast ice. I have one so I know.
The skate banana has good edge hold but not so great for kickers either. The evo-r is one of your best bets for ice and so is the arbor westmark.
I haven't ridden the ET to know how well it holds on ice though but it should be great for landing bad on spins.

I've narrowed down my choice for the Evo and Westmark and waiting for a review of the westmark to choose my next board.
