rode the pyl most of last season and rode revelstoke and LL. i realy like the pyl for "technical" riding and big lines. when i feelt like being more freestyleing =P is that even a word? i rode my salomon grip wich is absolutely the best freestyle twintip powder machine ever for me.
and about the experience dont worry it will be to stiff or not handle the trees.
the nose and tail are actually prety soft and the ee sort of short so its awesome for trees. but stil stable as heck for tech stuff.
120 riding days last year and i get atleast 100 per year.
been riding since 93.

Thanks everyone for all the advice and thoughts so far, there are a couple boards I hadn't even considered but am now considering, really appreciate the input.

I still haven't decided yet, the NS and Prior are basically off the list now, just wanting to thank everyone for their input.

Penzer-

Check out the CAPiTA TOTALLY FK'N AWESOME - Rode that and the Charlie Slasher on DEEP days at Mt. Baker all last season-

Solid, stiffer hybrid twin for all condition crusing. Good pop, super fun, If you don't want to ride the Slasher Full time- However, it is the best pow board I have ever ridden.

+1 for this. The TFA is a blast to ride, and the Slasher murders pow.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Right now there is a Brand new in plastic 2013 159cm Salomon Mans board in the Whistler Craigslist.
Buddy is asking $399, I bet you could get it for $350 maybe less.
New Salomon Snowboard Man's board 159cm

It seems like it has everything your looking for & compare that to the prices your gonna pay for any of the other ones on your list & it looks even better.

TT

If whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger.

Then I am so close to immortality

After some asking around you might like the Flow Maverick a bit better. The ABT is minimal in effect at best being between the feet for a pow stick, but the camber style and the way they do their carbon layup is money. You'll be able to manipulate it and the it will snap back right away. This is now what Lago rides in AK, not the Solitude anymore.

Flow ABT snowboards for 2013, Flow Maverick, Flow Rush, Flow Canvas - Wiredsport Innovation Watch - YouTube

Yeah but Air If You Dare was innertubes and the changing of the base profile was actually accidental. Spencer loved that board though.
