What boards do it all for under $400? Open to anything!!!

I bought a GNU Carbon Credit series board today, but I wasn't entirely convinced it was the best I could do.. So I did a bit of research, and I fell upon snowboarddungeon.com. I found some 2011 boards that also fell into my pricerange. Keep in mind I want a board that will be a general happy medium on all parts of the mountain. I am 5'11", 155lbs, shoe size 11.

Burton: Custom flying v ($369), Love ($350), Joystick ($342), Hero ($319), Process v-rocker ($326), and Whammy Bar ($340)

Forum: Conflict ($314), Destroyer ($300), Honeypot ($379)

GNU: Park Pickle ($341)

Libtech: TRS ($390), Skate Banana (Kind of the same as the GNU I bought right?) ($317)

Ride: DH2 ($350), Machete ($300), Antic ($240)

Rome: Pusher ($350), Postermania ($315), Graft ($343)

Sorry that I just named off every board in the land.. At this point, I'm pretty much open to anything.

Anyone please feel free to chime in if they want to make a note of a regarded stick..

These are last year's models right? A LOT of these boards are park oriented.

Correct. I pretty much just named off the boards in my pricerange.. I don't know much about them aside from the Burtons. Feel free to make your own suggestion

only boards i would pick off of your list: ride machete or lib TRS. That beng said there is nothing wrong with the CC either, its a good board, but if you can take it back and get one of these for cheaper do it.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

Agreed.

The TRS is basically just a better version of the GNU CC. If you can, definitely return the CC for the TRS.

Also, this years stuff will start going on sale in the next month or two, so if you really want more options you could wait until then.

I just bought a K2 Raygun this season for $360 at REI. Heard a lot of good things about it and how you could tackle pretty much anything on the mountain with it. Been out twice and it is way easier to handle just cruising down the slopes than my old board was (lots of camber). The Raygun has a mild rocker at the tips

I've ridden a few of the boards on your list and I own the Custom Flying V. I like the Custom for general cruising around the mountain and mixing in some park runs. It also floats pretty good on a powder day.

What if I added to the list, Bataleon Enemy (used), Rome Headline, and Rome Agent? The Rome Headline seems like a great all mountain board, but I'm not sure about it not being twin tip...
