Depends how much park you actually are going to do. However, the Proto comes to mind more when I read your post than the SL.

Might want to check out this thread: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...rbor-coda.html

Arbor Coda seems to be a highly regarded all-around board, which could be another good pick for you. I'm considering both the Coda and the SL but favouring the Coda.

The common board profiles and their pros and cons are explained here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...g-between.html

I've ridden both regular camber and rocker. I loved the camber, hated the rocker. Just like the description says, I felt like the rocker didn't grip snow very well and it tired me out. However, I wasn't an experienced rider then, the groomers might have been fairly packed and the board was a bit too short and possibly not very sharp. But in any case, I don't think rocker can grip snow on groomers like camber can.

That being said, the Coda rocker shape is not drastic and stiffer toward each end. Not 100% sure but I think this helps with carving. Also, the Coda has GripTech which is 4 "bumps" on the side of the board to bring some grip back.

So overall, I don't expect the Coda to do as well on packed groomers as a board with regular camber (or a hybrid like the SL), but based on reviews I expect it to do a reasonable job, possibly even pretty good. However, what I do expect this board to do well is perform in the powder, make quick turns and be a pleasant buttery ride overall. All this is attributed to its rocker profile. Rocker means a lot more catch free.

So combining the board reviews, my expectations of the board and advice from ppl on this forum, I'm opting for Coda as my first choice for an all-mountain board. If I don't like it, maybe I'll sell it and try the SL next.
