All mtn snowboard help please.
Hey im looking for a good all mountain snowboard at the moment, cant really decide on what I want, ive looked at some burton, k2,lib and rome. Im an all mtn rider and I also ride a little park, by little I mostly mean hardly anything. The most stuff I do is natural jumps. im 6' weigh 210, boot size is 11.5(probability a wide board) and im not biased with any company. I just need some help. Budget is like $600 and below. thanks for the help.

How much experience do you have? Is it your 1st or 2nd season?

If you're new(ish), keep the current setup. Having a different board based on ice conditions or region is only useful if you have the experience to capitalize on the technology gain. If you're still new, magnetraction isn't going to save you from slams. If anything, it may cause more. And having a Never Summer won't help you link turns.

You may not be new, I could be way off. If so...ignore me. :dunno:
I went gear crazy last year and it wasn't worth it. I've got 3 boards now and none of them are worth squat after the first time they touch the snow. Save the bankroll for a trip.

Lib TRS would be good. or the T.Rice if you want something stiffer.

Arbor Coda 161. Griptech is as grippy as you'll need.

ur burton custom v isnt good enough ? thats a bit suprizing... the rocker camber on that board should be pretty good for all mountain riding.. Leo and SnowPow on this forum both have ridden it and according to Leo's review it should be pretty good

So my old setup was a 157, old setup. I cant decide if I should get a 158 or 160. 6' weight 210 boot is 11.5
Do you think ill also be able to ride a regular board fine? Stance is usually +15, -5 or 10
