I think people aren't really answering your question because its all pretty much the same...I don't think any company really specializes in any one thing, seems more like they're all hitting the same basic characteristsics:

they all have a few reverse camber boards, hybrid cambers, regular cambers, then all that matched up with different flex patterns and shapes/bases. You can find comparable boards from pretty much every company

I think the only specializing perhaps is:
Bataleon- with that triple base tech...don't think any other company has that yet?
Burton - ICS channel, clearly no one else does that because its dumb but hey I guess some people like it
Libtech/GNU - magnetraction...I haven't really heard of other companies copying the whole magnetraction thing so I'd say that's something special to them

all I can think of so far..

well as you can see, these are just minor things that make these companies unique but for the most part they all offer the same stuff

One other option is the small custom houses like Donek that will take one of their base models and customize it to your specifics. It may cost more than some but not nearly as much as others.
