Which Ride boardshouldI get?

Ok So I have the Ride DH2.4 but it had a defect so I am able to get another ride board. Thought I would get the DH2 but now I am interested in the Ride Highlife and the Ride berzerker. My goals/likes/wants are

I only snowboard freeride but I enjoy moguls. I love how stiff the DH2.4 was and I Loved the pop it had. Also it was very forgiving so I would not catch my front edge. Id like to keep the same in my new board. The only complaint I have is it tends to wash out on very steep trails

So
Freeride
Pop
Stiffness
Forgiving
Holds an edge

Thanks for any advice!

Oh and I like the Highlifes graphics the best as they match my boots and bindings Lol no that it matters.

Any particular reason you say the berzerker? Or only because it won awards?

Only because it won some awards, I'm still new to this stuff. Just bought my first board recently and haven't even used it yet. I've been going for about 3 years in a row and get maybe 2 days on the snow... Not much, but I guess better than nothing since I do live in New Orleans. Was the defect major on your DH? Curious because I bought a Society UL.

No it wasnt major. Just delamination feeling off the edges like string. I could have repaired it fairly easy but I figured I had a great warranty and a chance to grab a 2012 board so I took it

I love my Highlife, and it sounds like it'd be right up your alley too. The Berzerker is a bit softer with a deeper sidecut. I've heard that despite being softer than the Highlife, the Berzerker isn't as forgiving. So yeah, I'd say Highlife.

Not so anymore. Tech wise the Berserker is a 2011 Highlife with Hybridrize. The UL has Poprods now and more carbon than last year. Different board completely.

More powder get the Berzerker, it is softer and will flex into the snow more. More not-powder get the Highlife UL it holds and edge like a champ and is uber smooth through turns.
