New season new board

Well the season is almost upon us. I am looking to pick up a new board in near future. I am currently riding a Burton Hero 155 mid-wide with Cartel bindings. I love the board any how playful it is, but it saw a lot of use last year and will now be my early/late season board. I currently live up in the northeast and will spend the better part of my season at Killington in Vermont. I plan to make a Colorado trip or two and may be moving out west next summer. I like my Hero because I can make the mountain my playground. It is great in the park and fun all over the mountain. I like to ride everything from trees to the park. I am looking for a board similar to the Hero in how playful it is that will fit my riding needs. I haven't kept up with boards much and am looking for a little input on which direction to go. I will demo if I can, but would like to hear some input on the selections. I am able to get discounts on certain brands so I would like to stick with them. I know this board loves Never Summer and I would love a new Proto, but lets stick with these brands. I will probably mount those new Flow M9-SE bindings on the board. I am 6' 165lbs size 11 1/2 boots 23" 15, -15 stance.
Burton- I would rather try something new
Ride, GNU, Forum, Flow, K2- Don't know much about the company
Lib Tech- Banna Magic, TRS, T-Rice Pro

You're best bet is probably the Flow Era. Though enjoy more stability and pop than your Hero.

And I'd actually recommend you just stay with the regular M9's for now. I think the new strap needs some tweaking.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

The only reason I was interested in the Flows from previous years is due to the toe cap. Is there a problem with that? Next binding choice would probably be Rome 390's. Other binding choices would be from Burton, Flow, Ride, Union, Rome, and Forum.

Burton does Demo days in VT from time to time. Try to catch one of those, it's free if you have a lift ticket, and you have their whole line up to ride.

Currently riding a Burton and would like to try something else. I can always fall back on Burton if I don't find anything else I like.

I should have made a smaller post with poor grammar and spellling acting like I'm the greatest thing to grace this planet. Seems like the best way to get a response around here.

Do you have any experience with the board? Can you comment on how it rides?
