New Board?

So I broke my old board (ride agenda) at the end of the season hitting a tree comin down from a big jump and im looking for a new board.
The main things i am gonna be focusing in the park are jumps (medium to large), but i will also be hittin a good amount of rails.
As for outside the park I wont do much of that so I dont really have a preference.

Some things that interest me are...

-The new bateleons
-some new forum boards
-some capita boards

I would prefer a 155-158
Wide if its possible, but i can make regular work.

Cash is a little tight for me right now so the lower the price the better but i definitely would not want to sacrifice much performance value for money.

So any suggestions on a new 2012 board for hopefully many seasons to come.

For the $$ check the Signal Park Flat, Flow Era/Verve/Shifty, or a Nitro Rook.

I have yet to ride a board from them that was not comparable or better than anything else in the category. Honestly they are probably one of the most, if not the most, solid full lineup of boards on the market.

Looks like the Era 155w is a good choice for medium to large jumps.

If jumping is your main concern I would look at the Shifty unless you really need a wide. Then Era, or Park Flat 156w.

are flow boards good with balance and overlay with regular boards. Because I have had bad experiences with riding with non-wide boards. I have a foot size of 12.5 and its soon to be 13.

If you're goin into 13's you need a wide. Era wide or Park Flat wide it is.

Not my experience. At 145lbs I could make the 55 era my all mountain twin. It's a mid flex park board fun and capable on jumps and jibs.
