Exclamation Help a guy pick out an all mountain board! 1 million thanx :)

Okay so I just sold my 10 year old Burton Custom 159 with ride bindings and want to get a new setup for this season. What I'm after is an all mountain board that will be great for ripping around and bombing down the mountain. I'm not much of a park guy but love to carve fast down the hill, hit natural jumps, go in between the trees and generally just having a good time all over the mountain. I'm 5'9ish and 175's. I haven't really riden anything else other then my old Burton Custom.

Thinking of

Never Summer SL 158

Never Summer Proto (but really hate the graphics) 157

Lib Tech Attack Banana 156

Lib Tech T Rice Pro 157

Lib Tech TRS Series 157

It seems that Lib Tech has a few options, those above and a few more, that would work. I just want a good all around board that will be easy to ride and fun to bomb around on. I've been riding for a while, but definitely not a pro. I don't buy new boards every season so I want get one that works good

Halp or suggestions of other boards? Am I looking at the right sizes too?

Since they are all pretty similar,I would take out the attack banana because it is more park oriented, and the T.rice because it will be stiffer than your custom. I would also take out the proto since you hate the graphics.

You are now left with the sl or trs, both about the same flex as your custom. I had more fun on the TRS but that is just me.

If you want an easy way to decide; if you ride in more icy areas then get the trs, if not you can get the Sl.

Right on thanx...I ride on the West Coast of BC/Pacific Northwest, so we do get some icy days. I'll look into the TRS a bit more and see if that would work for me.

Any other board suggestions?


Kinda narrowed it down to the Never summer SL, Lib Tech TRS and the Never Summer Proto (I can live with the graphics)
