Cant decide point me in the right direction

So I have size 13 boots weigh 175-184 and am an intermediate rider And I like everywhere in the resort, pow, groomers, crap snow, and maybe a little park here and there. I have been looking at some boards and need a little help on narrowing my choices down.

1.Rome Flag-most expensive but I've only heard good things

2.Rome Slash-Again another good board, I've been leaning toward this

3.Burton king-I have heard mixed reviews and that it scratches easily(I'm also worried about the width @ only 160mm)

4.Gnu Chb with Mtx-I live in the east so I am accoustomed to crap snow but I dont know if this is a quality board.

So what do ya think?? My budget is tight so the less the better but I dont want to get a crappy board. So yea any thoughts?

Thanks in Advance,
John

None of those are "crappy" boards. However, with a size 13 boot, your going to need something on the wider side.

i'd go with GNU. i ride there boards. there solid boards. CHB is a wide board so you should be ok. MTX is awesome.

i would also go with the gnu. I had a rider's choice last season which was great, but then i got a banana board with mtx this season and im in love with it. i also live on the east coast and the mtx really does allow you to carve through ice.
