Default New Board / Boards Advice

I'm currently riding on a Burton Custom from 2000. After many years of action, I've decided I should upgrade from the past to the present. My biggest issue however, is that i've been doing a whole lot more park riding. I still like to bomb from top to bottom, but at the same time i feel that this board, while a great all mountain board, is lacking in the park department. Has board technology evolved enough from 2000 to present, so that I can get one new board to satisfy my speed demon carve from top to bottom style while at the same time provide enough feel and flex for the park? Or should I look into two separate boards.

Also at this point I haven't paid enough attention to all the new techs & specs that are available in boards to know what I should really be looking for. I'd really like something with a lot of flex and response like a v-rocker for the parks, but I doubt a v-rocker would have enough stability for steep carving runs...Is this an accurate assumption?

Can someone help a brotha out and offer some advice?

Thanks in advance!

I highly recommend that you hold out for a Never Summer Proto CT. It'll be out next season, but seriously... it's a great one quiver board.
