Default Looking for a new board need a little help

Been itching to get a new board that uses either rocker or R/C tech. I little background info probably needed though. Last 3 years been riding a Concept TMS, before that I rode a Timeless for about 6 years. I'm pretty much a all mountain rider with occasional stop at the park. I've been looking at the new Rider Choice as a replacement, but I've also seen alot of reviews saying the Pickle could be used as an all mountain board even though it's a park board, is this true? I live in SoCal so most of my riding is done at Bear/Summit and MT High with the annual trip to Mammoth or Tahoe. I really don't have much info regarding rocker tech, so any board advice would be appreciated. Btw my stats at 5'6" 160 lbs.

How much are you looking to spend? I think you can do better than the pickle for an all mountain board unless you are planning to spend some time in the park.

Never Summer Sl or Heritage if you are willing to drop that kind of money. I swear by Never Summer. Top notch.

And regarding size what would you recommend 153 or 155?

Not that this site has a corner on the sizing market, but it says 155.

I really like the Capita Quiver Killer and the DC Tone boards. Both are solid boards!
