Default Need help!

Okay hi guys I'm new to the forum and am looking at buying a new board. I have done a ton of research and it has just led me to more questions. A little background information about myself; I've been snowboarding for about 3 years quite avidly (I go about 1-3 times a week) at a local resort. Any who i'm about 5'7 175 pounds. My first board was a fresh board (152cm with traditional camber) < more on the stiffer side which i really enjoyed. This passed month I saw for sale a 2012 k2 darkstar (155 cm) and decided to grab it as its older brothers have been raved about. I personally don't like it, I find it to wash out under hard carving and can be pretty unpredictable at high speeds as well as on certain snow conditions.

Unfortunately in Ontario we don't have much powder so i'd say my i spend about 75 percent of my times on groomed runs and through trees (which other people have usually made a path through), about 20 percent park (new at it, can hit most ride on features and some small jumps) and about 5 percent pow if i'm lucky. I am looking for an all mountain board and have narrowed it down to the burton custom (I found a good deal on it) and a t.rice lib tech cbx something but am looking for any advice on what to get. I've never ridden a set back stance and that kind of worries me for riding switch (not that I can but am in the process of learning). Also what size range would be good for me ? I have a size 9 or 9.5 boot depending on the boot.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice I feel like my mind is going to explode.
