Next board in my quiver?

Please help me figure out what my next board should be to compliment the ones I already have. I'm a free rider and starting to transition into park (maybe 20% park). I live in the east so icey conditions is the norm.

Here's my quiver:

#1. Rome Crail (beginner board, soft camber, directional)

#2 GNU Rider's Choice (New board this season, still getting used to it. But lovin the MTX)

Future?
#3 Bataleon Evil Twin? (I prefer a twin shape cause I'd like to ride switch more often)

Thanks Guys, any suggestions you have based on the info above!

you like your Gnu with MTX? what about a Carbon Credit? I think it's listed as an "all mountain" board but with BTX it's pretty versatile and can handle it's own in the park.

the carbon credit is more of a budget version of the riders choice, not really a park board. Maybe try a street series, skate bananer, or maybe a box scratcher depending on your size.

I think you are over thinking it. That riders choice should be fine for you all over the mountain, including the park.

Instead of buying a new board, take your $$$ and book a trip out west. Get some good snow.

QFT! I bought a riders choice this year and it does everything. I don't need to have several different boards. (even though I do). I haven't wanted to ride anything else since I bought it. Great in Pow, great on jumps. It even butters decently. Spend your money on a trip to somewhere new!!
