Park Boards suggestions?!

Hey, alright so I have been trying to pick out a board for weeks and every time I think I have found one, I discover another one just as good or better. I'm from Tx so i don't really have the chance to demo many boards but I am moving to Colorado so i am gonna need a good board that will last me awhile and shred. Can you all help me out with suggestions.

I'm 5'10, 160 lbs, and I have a Size 11 boots. Park focused board. Something that can grab rails, hit jumps and stick landings very well but also it needs to be able to do well when i get bored at the park and wanna carve through some trees. And be decent through pow. I am fine with rocker or camber. Or hybrid hah. must be $500 or cheaper. A medium flex or lower. I want to be able to throw the board around (complete control), butter and spin like there's no tomorrow, but stable enough for landing 40+.

So I have found numerous boards that claim to do this but I cant pick which one. So getting opinions/suggestions for ANY board would be great.

Thanks A Lot!

I just read your opposing response from May about the blacklist lol. So i guess its a pretty good board if your suggesting it now. It looks pretty sick. Thanks for your help I will keep those in mind.

I dunno, never ridden the Blacklist but I considered buying it. I'm on the Westmark and it's awesome fun. With your boot size being on the cusp between the two, that's why I suggested it.

I think I have decided on the Never Summer Revolver. Cant decide if a 152 is a good size or not because thats the only good size dogfunk.com has. Know of any other sites that allow returning?

Probably a little small for you, at 155ish up from 140ish pounds I'm moving to 152 at THE SMALLEST for riding park at even just Bear.

First two options are probably your best, though the Signal Park Flat in a 154 would also be a really good option too. Under $400, sintered, flat means less energy to ride but good snap since you don't have to cancel out rocker to get to your tips, and Signals bases are the fastest and most durable I have personally had experience with.

If all else fails, you should be able to find yourself a Flow Verve or Era at this time of year, and those are both killer everywhere on the mountain.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Yeah I agree. Something about the revolver's edge is supposed to make it feel longer but 152 is still to small. And the signal park flat sounds perfect as well it had great reviews but i just had a Ride Agenda, which is a flat base that rockers out slightly after each binding, and i hated it. It limited me everywhere. So don't want to take that chance again with a flat board.

I'm now deciding between the Doubledog wide 154 and the Revolver 155 both seem pretty sick. Started a poll between the 2 but still open for opinions. I appreciate the help!
