Quiver killer or Not!?

I know there isn't a such thing as a quiver killer, but in your opinion, what board comes the closest? Was this term created by companies as a marketing tool or is there really a board that is equally beneficial, or close to it, in all aspects of riding?

definitely a hype term used by companies to get you to buy their "latest and greatest"

generally a board the is medium/medium stiff flex with some sort of rocker/camber/flat combination will be your best all around board. Basicly you are just looking for a happy medium in all he stats and rely on rocker to float you in pow.

pretty much every big company makes a deck that will be good at everything; if you can only have one pick one of these

Arbor Blacklist

Ride Machete

K2 Fastplant

Signal Omni

Yes trouble

Lib Attack banana

Gnu Riders Choice

Neversummer SL

Rome Agent Rocker

Thanks Riley. Right now I ride a 2011 Rossi Taipan, but I have 2 complaints. It's slow and it's on the heavy side. I don't go in the park, but I love bombing groomers and hitting natural jumps along the way. I don't ride switch much and I don't want a super stiff board, I still want to be able to play around if I get the urge. So I guess what I'm looking for is a fast, stable, not too stiff board that is good bombing, natural hits, and has good edge hold (I live on the east coast ). Which one of these boards or others would be a good fit?

Neversummer SL, Yes Trouble, Gnu riders choice, lib attack banana.

The all have some sort of "extra grip on ice" sidecut.

I think he SL would be the best match for you but the other three are really solid choices as well.

I've not ridden it but the Coda is mentioned quite a bit for what you describe.

The SL is a great suggestion.
if you want to go even faster, Stiffer but not stiff is a heritage which is made for going fast. Check Snowolf's (and another) review in the review section.
