First post....need some advice for a new board!

So a little background about myself.

I'm 5'6, 140lb, boot size about 8.5
This will be my 3rd season boarding. I can carve and fly down the slopes pretty well and started to hit the park last season as well.

The burton custom seems like a good all mountain board. (don't flame me because the first board i mention is a burton lol). My question is what other good all mountain boards out there that are comparable or even better. I know there are some out there but it takes so long googling everything. Figure I would just sign up and ask. any info would be appreciated.

I'm in more or less the same situation, I bought an 07/08 Rome Solution. I hear the Ride DH is another great all around board. There are great all-mountain boards from every brand available (well, every good brand...I doubt Snow Jam has a great all mountain) so it comes down to which brand you like and personal preference really.
