New Freestyle setup

Whats up. I am a long time reader here, but this is my first time posting.

Ive been riding for about 9 years now, mostly in the midwest and now new england. I have been primarily a freerider and like tall stiff rides for big carves and popping off rollers. My current stick is a Custom X with Cartels and some stiff boots. However, after riding like this for so long I have definitely fallen way behind on switch riding and ground tricks. I plan to dedicate most of this winter to really focusing on butters, presses, 180's and some park riding. I am going to pick up a true twin and Im really intrigued with the rocker style boards, but there are a lot of choices out there. I guess I'm looking for a good midrange rocker board like a Skate Banana, a Push 1985, artifact, or one of the Gnu's with the banana tech and magnetraction. I'm about 5'8" 200lbs. I've also been thinking about the Joystick V-rocker just because I can use my current EST cartels on it, but I would rather have two complete setups.

I have little to no experience with freestyle boards so any insight would be greatly appreciated.
