Default YES pick your line

Has anybody had a chance to ride this board yet? I'm thinking of forking out the dollars for a powder board next season. Actually i would want it to be more of a powder/freeride board, something that excels in powder especially when it starts to get flat, but will hold an edge well in sketchy/icey parts before getting to the good stuff. Also just for general big(ger.. i don't really go that big just yet) mountain stuff when conditions arn't as great (i.e. multiple days after a storm when everythings a bit baked i.e. I mostly ride in tahoe). The pick your line looks appealing because of the small taper, camrock, and mellow magnetraction. Has anyone ridden the camrock design? Angry seems to hate on it while the goodride loves it. I'm leaning towards anything with some sort of s-rocker/camrock (i.e. malollo, rome notch, rossignol experience, jones flagship) over a flat to rocker (i.e. charli slasher) or full rocker just for that greater edger hold (snow mullet).

Sorry for so much detail, it's mostly just getting my head around all the boards and the different tech. The powder board will compliment a new smaller park/all mountain fun/shallow powder in the trees type board. I rode an EVO last year and absolutely loved it for that great fun feeling, but am tempted by the proto for a bit more stability if i take it on trickier terrain on the same day as lapping the park. However I think I could convince myself to really stick to the two different types of riding on different days, and in that case the EVO would probably be way better.

Also I'm a tallish (5'11) and skinny (and generally pretty weak, 135 pounds) guy. While I generally prefer 'stiffer' rides, I sometimes worry about how stiffness ratings apply to me due to my downsized nature.

Anyway if people feel like giving some advice or just commenting randomly it's all good.

Nothing changed between the 2011 and 2012. Westmark sits between the Evo and Proto I feel. The Blacklist is closer to the Evo.
