All mountain board, TRS C2 BTX? Attack Banana?

Yo!

Decided to get another board since the Skate Banana doesnt really do it for high speeding and such.
I ride everything but mostly at high speeds and in the park, but also in the pow when there is any!
Price isent a concern as long as it got the performance to back it up. Rider skill lvl: Very experienced
Needs to work good with either Union Atlas, Union Force, Burton Cartel re:flex or Burton Malavita re:flex bindings. My height is 6,4 and 180lbs

Thx alot for help.
Very exited about this season

I'm 195lbs, and if you want a board that you won't be able to out perform get the 2012 157 T. Rice HP Pro Blunt. I have that board, and it floats fine at my weight so you shouldn't have any problem with float for yours. If you want a board that you can hit big air with, bomb down steeps, and will eat any type of snow that you can throw at it then get this board. It's going to be a lot stiffer than your skate banana, but it's really stable at speed. It's going to run you around $700, but you said that money isn't a concern for you so go for it you won't regret it.

I vote Lib-tech skunk ape, cuz you are one.

at least the 161 probably the 165, if you are the gorilla you say you are then a bigger board shouldn't be an issue, and it will be much more stable

what size are your feet?

if you need a wide board and aren't stuck on Lib:

Neversummer heritage or proto CTX-both wide

Ride Arcade UL or berzerker-both come in wides

K2 Slayblade_wide

Arbor Roundhouse RX

all those boards are made for haulin ass down the hill and hitting everything

thats still cool, the skunk ape is suposed to be pretty badass for big people.

The ride berzerker is a really cool board, super stable, floats in powder well, grips well, has a lot of pop. The Machete is more well rounded and kills the park as well.

The TRS doesnt come in wide so if your feet are bigger than size 11 you will have some issues
