Recommend me a board
 
Price: $500 or less
Camber: I'd like regular with some micro rocker tips
Base: whatever is fast
Flex: twin medium somewhere between park and all mountain. Torsionally something you can carve on but that doesn't take a leg press to initiate turns on.
Shape: true twin
Size: 150-152
Used for: park laps, pow days in a pinch and riding all over the mountain.

Currently I use my evo 150 for this and it's great but I destroyed my westmark 150 finally and I need a new backup/primary.

Looking at Yes The Greats. Would appreciate any other ideas. Peace, Cheese

Ride Machete would be a good choice

Nitro Rook. Better than any board i've ridden to date.

So neither of those are the camber he wants...

Flow Shifty is really the only one that comes to mind other than the Greats.

Don't shy away from a Rossi One Magtek. Rossignol is perhaps the most under rated brand out there. It checks off almost all of your criteria. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

i'd go w/ the machete too. it's not a camber nor a rocker. literally flat between the contact points with a slight rocker at the tip and tail for powder. it's a great aggressive all mountain.

this is what i ride.

i ride a lot of groomers, and it's handled great on ice at a fast speed, a little skidding, but nothing where you lose control. can't give you any input on how it handles on powder, but it's supposed to be at worst... descent.

I ride a 155 cm, at 160 lbs

Yea not exactly but it does what he wants perfectly. Ride DH2 is exactly the camber profile he wants but its a little stiff IMO
