Help me pick my new board
 
Slash ATV Hub
Jones Mountain Twin
Capita Black Snowboard of Death
Never Summer Premier F1
Jones Flagship
Lib Tech Jamie Lynn Phoenix
Yes Pick Your Line
Arbor A-Frame
Rome Mod

This is roughly the order in which I am considering these boards but I'm open to new suggestions. I like steep, narrow rides with jumps, grabs, drops, tree runs, etc. No desire to do butters/rails/etc. I ride Mammoth/Bear mostly which are generally soft-to-hard-packed conditions with some powder days, but I'm on the east coast sometimes and the conditions there can get very-hard-to-icy.

I'm a free-rider at heart, but I like to incorporate some freestyle into my free riding, let's put it that way, I don't actively seek the park except to hit a jump or two, I get my fix from getting creative with the terrain and going off trail.

Heigh: 5'10"
Weight 170"
Shoe: Size 11.5 Burton Ruler (with foot reduction tech)

Mountain Twin all the way. set back options, mellow magnetraction, camrock, NOT tapered. If you are a freeride/FREESTYLE this board should melt your face.

my worry is with how this board might preform in steep chutes and more dangerous terrain

why these 4 in particular?

the ultra dream is a powder board so that one is an obvious no.

Are you kidding? Ultra dream is a great mid-stiff all mountain board that is pow oriented but does great on groomers.

Those four are the best all mountain boards I've tried. Personally I own the riders choice because ice is the norm here and i need something i can easily flex. In the occasional pow/soft days I wish I had something more aggressive like those 4 boards.
