bump - what did you get and how do you like it?
I am in a similar position, looking for a board to hit resort and slack, icy blacks and the park. I love bc powder (and have a NS split for this, I love it!) but want to replace my solid Turbo Dream.
The TD is lotsa fun but disappoints on the steep ice due to detuned edges for the park. If it's icy, I prefer rails, boxes, and jumps over runs, but I also ride with skiers who are OK on ice, so I'd like to be able to hang with them and trust my edges more. Currently, I feel very insecure on my TD unless I sharpen edges specifically - but then the park sucks
My list is also very similar: Attack Banana, Park Pickle. After reading here, I am considering the Blacklist too. I love NS boards (Raptor, Heritage), and would consider Evo, but expect Magne will be better for me on ice even when edges are dull (which would be good for the park).
Of all these, I lean to the Attack or the Park Pickle. I am a bit worried because I think they have finger joins in the core - I like eco and sustainable, but want a solid core as I plan this to be a quiver board for many years... And I don't think they have full metal edges, right
Recommendations and feedback are greatly appreciated

- Boots 11.5
- Ride pow, blacks, park (mini + med rails, boxes and jumps, would like to go bigger this year)
- I am also loking to improve my spins - 15+ yrs ago my biggest one was 540 on a 153 freetyle board, now I would be happy with 3s
