Default New Board Help?Echelon Snowboards?

I currently own a 2011 Capita Horrorscope 153 w/ burton customs. I'm looking for a board that will be better at handling ice and more all mountain riding and also jumps 45ft. and bigger, I have been looking at the echelon snowboards especially because of their deal for soldiers: Echelon Snowboards?For Soldiers
I was primarily interested in the Echelon Ribbons snowboard and was wondering if it would be a good board for what i am looking for? especially for the price?

We in general want to say yes, but this year was kind of a soft launch of the company. I know BA has lined up to test some decks for angrysnowboarder reviews, but as of now I don't know anyone that has been on it.

BS tech works though and is what Omatic used before they died.

Echelon Snowboards?Ribbons
I'm trying to do some answering of stuff while at SIA. I think a good choice might be the 155 flight pattern or 154 ribbons.. The ribbons would be a great option for normal days: check out Zach Soderholm's videos on Vimeo; in his latest he's on a Ribbons.

That is a sick edit, and i was looking at the 156w ribbons because i wear a size 12 boot and also because of the sweet graphics compared to the flight pattern. Also the flight pattern is stiffer and i'm looking for something that still has a little play in it. I was wondering though if the ribbons would be able to handle icy conditiions or high speeds as well as the flight pattern?

I think that the FP will be a bit better on ice. In the end, you'll need to decide how much you ride on boilerplate as to which board is for you.

I rode the ribbons on fairly non ideal days, it does fine.
