Exclamation Time for a new board, need help on what!

Alright so ive finally decided to retire my old board (mostly because i have a better job now and can afford something better). I wanted one last year but couldnt afford it. What im after is something that wont break the beak but is rockered and cambered. I had my eyes set on the NeverSummer SL-R/SL but its hard to find those for a good price. I can probably be coaxed into spending $300-$350 max. I like to do all mountain but have a tendency to really like park too so something thats pretty all around good and light will satisfy me. Probably anything is better for that than my Burton AIR 5.1 though eh?

Some research landed me on a few (besides the NeverSummer which i want the most)
-Rome Garage Rocker
-Rome Agent Rocker
-Burton Custom Flying V
-Lib Tech TRS C2 BTX
-Rossignol One Magtek
-Rossignol Trick Stick
-K2 Turbo Dream
-Ride DH2

Ive heard those last two arent really hybrids but have seen nothing but good reviews as well so figured id throw them in there.

Anyways, so theres that. And if it helps, i mainly ride at Mt.High and on some days (most) its groomed but I plan on hitting the powder there too soon (maybe even mammoth this year) when i get a chance. Hopefully this helps

Your guys's help is much appreciated.

Your biggest problem is going to be finding one of those boards that you want for the price you are willing to spend. It's nearly impossible to find a NS on sale, unless you go the buy/sell forums and find something there.

If you can find one the 2010 skate bananas are going for around 250, atleast I saw one in a snow shop couple weeks ago. I paid almost 600 for mine. And its getting ready for season 2. ( I pretty much ride everyday, so in my opinion the board is solid)

The garage Rocker and Agent aren't hybrids. They are free pop. Zero camber all the way to the farthest binding stance and then it becomes rocker. Garage Rocker is really an all park/ small mountain board. My resort is 500 foot vertical drop so it's fine for what I'm dealing with.

Ah okay then what about the Rome Factory Rocker then? Judging by the description and price it seems fitting for what im looking into as well...
