Looking for a new board

I'm looking to get a new board this year, I'm currently riding an 08 Burton Dominant and am looking at getting either the Burton Custom X or Burton Monkey Wrench but I am open to suggestions for other boards that are similar to these two. I don't know much about other boards since I have only rode Burton and Ride boards since I started.

What is your ability level? Is this for all-mountain?

The custom x is an incredible board for someone who knows how to rip. If you are intermediate+, I'd highly recommend it. Very fun board IMHO.

I would say that I am intermediate.

weight: 185
height: 5'11"
boots: 11

majority of the time I'm usually just free riding around the mountain but I go through the park also, I would say its split 70/30 between the two.

budget I'd say $600-$700

Ride Arcade 158, super light, regular camber, true twin, got good review from angrysnowboarder and boardinsiders. and its made with hemp wich is sweet. it is pretty stiff

I ride a Lib-tech banana magic for pretty much the same purpose, its light, carves great and floats well thanks to the rocker, also very fast and stable. its made with rocks (basalt)

Arbor wasteland-rocker, griptech, and the wood top sheet just looks pretty

I like camber boards' performance but having rocker just makes riding easier.

Others will try to steer you away from burton as well. I like the boards just not the channel/EST binding system.

also you dont have to spend top dollar to get the perfect board, im seriously considering trading my board for an Arbor coda, which is a little softer than my banana magic. a lot of the boards at this price are quite stiff sometimes a cheaper board is better for you.
