new board help

Hey there guys seeing if anyone could help me out. i'm looking to get a new board for the season after coming into some unexpected income. I currently have a GNU CHB 156 that i've had for about 5 years and been boarding for about 7 in all. I'm looking for a more advance all mountain board that is easy to maneuver between carves and has some pop when i feel like hitting the park. my limit is 800. thanks for any help given can't wait for the new season.

Check out the Banana Magic... Unless you have have bigger feet go with the T. Rice it is bomb they both come in 157. I have rode both and own the T Rice. Good luck.

2012 Forum Destroyer Doubledog, Arbor Coda, 2012 K2 Protohype, Flow Infinite Popcam, or a Nitro Team Gullwing.

All cheaper and as good or better than a B.Magic.

If you have $800 to spend you don't have to get something now, that's plenty to get 2012 board and bindings. Wait for the 2012 drop.

You can find this years Banana Magic for 480 almost everywhere on sale. Both Ski Pros in Phoenix have it for 480 in a 157.

The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive 2012 Forum Destroyer DoubleDog Used and Reviewed

Coda hasn't changes yet The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive Arbor Coda A Closer Look

Pretty sure the Team Gullwing is the same as well The Angry Snowboarder Blog Archive Nitro Team Gullwing with Raiden Blackhawks my take

He'll have the Protohype up there eventually. It is the most freeride/allmountain I suggested

I rode the Infinite I-rock and have ridden pop-cam style cambers, and I trust the Flow board designer more than most. None of there boards I have ridden were bad. The Infinite pop-cam will more than likely be a great all mountain park capable ride with a good amount of amp.

any reason why you wouldn't advise getting the T.Rice other then the price? It looks like a great all mountain board from the 20+ reviews I ether read or watched.
