HELP: NS EVO/Proto CT v. Burton Joystick v. Lib Tech Attack Banana

I am looking to get a new board and have narrowed it down to 4. I would really like to get your opinions.

My time is spent half park and the other half free-riding. I am roughly 5'10", weigh 175 lbs and wear a boot size of 10. I am still a rookie to the park. Last year was the first time I started hitting it seriously. I made good progress and def. hope to spend more time there this year. All of my riding is done in the northeast.

The 4 boards that I have been looking at are listed below:
-NS EVO - 150/152
-NS CT Proto - 152
-Burton Joystick - 150
-Lib Tech Attack Banana - 153

I am also open to suggestions/recommendations.

Thanks.

Those are some seriously short lengths.

At your weight I'd try a blacklist. It does have griptech too for that noreast snow

agreed. 155/6 range would be better suited

I've ridden the Joystick, and the edge hold was really rough, and I was in Utah at the time. So I'd probably eliminate that board based on your East Coast riding alone.

Nolefan was that the 2010 or 2011 Joystick? and anyone else have complaints about the edge hold? I was considering the 2011 Joystick because I found it for so cheap it's hard to pass up.

Mine from last year is still good and this year they are going to be even better. Switched the glass they're using to something beefier and stronger.
