Can't Decide between supermodel/x or t6

So i dont know if you guys saw the other thread, but i ended up selling my royale to a friend with a big boot (11.5). Now, snowboardless, i need a good freeride board that can still act as an all-mountain board (free ride moreso cause i love to carve). I can't decide between the T6, supermodel, and supermodel x. I'd like to ride a board that isn't twitchy on edge, but still can stick those carves. Since i do a lot of spring boarding also, i'd like the board to hold an edge in ice, so that may factor in?. Some say the x performs all mountain a lil better than the reg supermodel, but the t6 is in its own category. I couldn't find a single consistent review for either three. Does anyone have any experience with either 3/ can help? also, what size ~160?

I'm 5'10" @ 142lbs
love:
pow
long sweeping turns
holding that sick edge
higher speed stability

All are going to be twitchy on edge.

okay, so if we disregard that, which one would be the one that suits my likings the best, short of trying them out?

You didn't ask for recommendations on other boards.

well if i were actually trying to help someone out you would have taken the next OBVIOUS course of action which would be to recommend him/her any boards that might suit their riding style. But, you're not helping me much, sooooo yeah.

i guess some people like to put around and be counter productive all day

thnx for the help though

The only one counter productive is you. You want to know about other boards specifically ask about them, or better yet ask for recommendations. Instead you are only hung up on 3 specific boards and asked about those 3 specific boards.

One can safely say that you are the one that is counter productive to your own cause.

You could take a look at the Rome Anthem, it might be a good board for the type of riding you are looking for.

-----------edit----------

I also heard that Neversummer has some great boards, that are great for carving. Not sure about specific models, but you can check them out.
