Question 2012 Burton Aftermath -What do you think?

So I got the 2012 Burton Aftermath while returning a rental bc the guy said he'd put the amount my rental was towards buying a new board, on top of the sale they had going. so it was worth it to buy a board. I grabbed this board bc I thought it was the best board that I could ride. So i just started checking it out online and everything I read makes me think its probably a park board more than anything else. I never ride the park. Just the mountain. DO you think it'll make that much of a difference?

It's a cambered mid flex twin, that should get you down the mountain. Are there better options for what you want? Probably.
Why did you pick this one vs another? And why do you think this one isn't what you need?

well i got this one mainly bc of the few options left in the store. this is a 5/10 in terms of responsiveness and the rest of the boards were either 2-4, which wouldve been too soft. or the custom x which i wouldn't be able to ride. the only reason i have doubts is because i read over and over how its a great freestyle board, so i figured id just ask you guys about it

its fine, if you want to bomb big stuff its wrong.

On pow days when it gets chopped out if might force you to slow down a bit but that is true of all boards to some degree.

for 80% of days i ride a stiffer park board, more fun then my big board.

Shouldn't be a problem. I prefer cambered boards, and a mid-flex will be just that, right in the middle so it won't be great at anything, and it won't be horrible at anything. Sounds a lot like my last board actually which was a great trainer for me for a lot of years...
