Buying a snowboard after only having ridden rentals.

Currently looking at buying a snowboard as I'm working a season and need one (have wanted one for years but alas)

I've only ever ridden rental boards which kind of sucks cause I don't know what shape / size they were for me

Currently I'm looking at one of the camber & reverse shaped boards because I want to be all over the mountain and having that little bit of lee-way with catching edges seems almighty helpful to me whilst learning to spin more than the 180s I can do now.

I want to spend quite some time in the park and learn to ride switch as well as I can regular. I don't really want to hit anything more than a 20'er but would love to be able to 360 one and tail / nose press rails well.

I've been looking at the rome rocker series, Agent, reverb and factory and wanted to know if any yall have ridden these boards and what they are like, also is there a huge difference in going up a level (all are within my budget but saved money is saved money)

Thanks in advance
