Default All mountain freestyle setup

Looking at getting an all mountain freestyle setup to ride at the various resorts around Banff, but also in the icy conditions back home in Australia. I'm 193cm(6'3"), 91kg(200lbs), have a size 12(US) Burton Rampant boot and run +15, -9 angles. I'd say that I'm an advanced intermediate and like to hit every natural feature along a run and butter in the flat sections. I don't go into the park very often and when I do it's mainly to hit jumps. Originally I wanted to get a 2013 Lib Tech TRS(159cm) with Union Atlas bindings, but I'm concerned about drag considering the waist width is only 25.3cm. Would I be better off with a NS Proto CTX (155cm) as it has a waist width of 26.1cm? Suggestions and advice very welcome!!

Or a wide dark series in a 61 or 65. I'm about the same specs as you but like 4 inches shorter, and my size 12's fit really nice with K2 formulas on my 61 w dark series. No issues with toe or heel drag at all.
I reckon if you have high profile bindings with gas pedals you will be fine on most boards.

I've got size 12's on a t.rice 161.5, they fit fine with 15 / -15.

Buttering the t.rice is not fun. Dark Series would be even less fun.
If you do get the rice, I doubt you need a 164. Here's a review, the guy weighs 210 and rides the 157

If he's rarely hitting park why are we saying Blacklist?

Coda if you want Arbor. But my go to is the Flow Rush if I want a twin that I'm not jibbing. Nimble, powerful, grippy, and smooth. Other notables, YES Greats, K2 Fastplant, or a Nitro Team Gullwing.
