Burton Process 2013 help

Hola-

I've been riding a Ride Timeless 161 (2001) for about 9 years, and I thought it was about time for an upgrade. I ride mainly in Tahoe/Mammoth, and would say I'm a solid intermediate rider, I will go down basically anything, but I'm not hucking myself off cornices or going through the park. Not a speed demon, figure around 30mph tops. I like powder, trees, and just fun free riding all mountain.
I wanted to learn more flatland stuff (butters, etc) and just have a fun all around board. My local shop highly recommended the 2013 Process Flying V, which i got for a smokin deal on eBay. Its still in shrink wrap, but i the more i read, the more I am concerned on my decision. The Flying V shape is a radical departure from what I normally ride, and i'm worried about the stability. Yes, I should probably demo this board first, i know.

I am overthinking this whole thing?

How does the camber profile in the timeless compare to the process?

Ride Timeless 161, rather stiff camber board.

I decided to try out a Burton Flying V (Sherlock) this season to add to my 3 camber boards. It was decent, but honestly wasn't as loose and playful as a full rockered board, nor was it as solid on carves / ice as traditional camber. I only got it in powder once and while it was perfect for that, I only ride powder once or twice a year so it went down the road. The Process is a little softer so it might be better suited to buttering and other park type stuff, but I'd rather just get a straight-up jib stick for that kind of dinking around. If you want to pick up a board on the cheap that rides similar to your current board but is a little softer in the tips for presses, butters etc....check out the Rossi stuff. I've ridden the Taipan and One Magtek - both ride very much like traditional camber but are more forgiving with rocker in the tips. I suck at buttering and even I could do that easily with the Taipan.
