Default Want a new board... what u think?

i dont have much knowledge on boards so i was wondering if you guys had any suggestions. I currently have a board i won and its a burton but i cant seem to find the exact model name on it anywhere. its a 145 and im 6 foot tall, about 140lbs. I demoed a K2 world wide weapon last year at some slopes near me and i loved it. I demoed a few others but dont even remember what other ones i demoed cuz i liked the WWW so much. I have been researching it and i see alot of ppl say to never buy that board for slopes, only like parks and stuff. Any suggestions?

also, i seem to catch my edge alot on my board and my board only. my buddy has 2 boards that i have tried and i never catch my edge like i do on mine, is there something i can do to just eliminate that or is it the board or how i ride or maybe even just all in my head? lol

Lib Tech/GNU's BTX (Banana-traction) is amazing for not catching edge. I was riding in hard packed slush during night ride and didn't have a problem with my skate banana.

Cool, ill definately see if i can find one on demo day. Do you guys think WWW is a bad choice for a mountain board? and also i want a flimsy board, my burton is stiff as a rock and i hate it.
