Default Good Park/All mountain board?

Im looking for something that will slay the park and also do good on hard pack, steeps, pow, basically anything on the mountain. It needs to be playful as well as versatile. Im 5'7" ish and 140. I've been looking at the Arbor blacklist because of BA's review and the Lib-tech TRS because of all its awards. Suggestions are welcomed.

Magazine awards are not worth paying attention too. Be aware of that.

Really though anything angrysnowboarder recommends will be killer.

in the park, jumps, jibs, or equal seriousness in both? As in are you looking to be doing or eventually learning 3 on pretzel 1 outs or the like as well as 7's on 50 fts? Or are you more concerned about doing crazy spin in spin outs than chucking your meet of the biggest jumps you can find? Or would you rather throw yourself off giant booters than get tech on metal and plastic?

These things matter.

I guess Lib Tech TRS suits you. Lib Tech TRS centered stance and good for directional progressive sidecut. More over Lib Tech twined park days or setback for freeride days. As what you have mention, I think Lib Tech can live up with your style and wants.

Did you really just use moreover on an internet snowboard forum... fer sher.

I'd go Blacklist for sure, but maybe take a look at the Echelon Franken and Flow Era as well.
