Most of the boards the guys have talked about should be good... Just make sure it's longer than 154cm. Check out each board's size chart and take it from there...
It's rated for 150-200 pounds, so I feel that is sufficient. The Smokin board would be a 156 and still has the same act weight amount as Never Summer.

Another is the K2 Happy Hour. Lifted tech with their hyper progressive sidecut is all the grip you will need as long as you know how to use your edges. This is what I'll be riding this year as my do anything board.

Salomon Assassin is softer than the other two and totally park able but more stable at high speed than either the Nana or Evo. The camber profile coupled with EquaRad does a great job gripping hard pack as well.

Slash Happy Place. Generally camrock has a lot of grip as the faux contact pt is also where your body weight is on the board. This was possibly the best balance between playfulness and stability I've ever ridden.
I apologize, I missed your earlier post. The edge hold on my EVO is ok at best for my liking at least. I love responsive board and my Skate banana seemed to hold a edge much better then my eVo and react faster.

I only ride in the northeast resorts most commonly I ride are Ski Liberty, PA - Seven Springs, PA - Killington, VT - Big Boulder, PA

Now here is what I am looking for, I have 2 quite soft boards and they have taught me a lot. I am looking for more of an all mountain board that will do well on the ice slopes of the east, but still a true twin board. I want something I can pick a little more speed with (my current boards feel a little unstable when I'm bombing a hill at Killington or seven springs). Here is what I had in mind (I'm not an narrow minded person so I'm open to anything these are just what I have thought about as far!)

NS Proto HD 154
NS Ripsaw
Smokin Awesymmetrical
Smokin Super Park

Please feel free to to send me some boards I may never have thought of! I only ask one thing, please give a reason why the board is better or works well... I hate when read someone's says "I read that" or "my friend kills it on so and so board so it's the best" etc.

Thanks!
Ryan

Mizu Kuma Look at a RCR or purely Cambered Board!!!!!

Much more of a solid ride/feel than a CRC Profile, I reckon!!!!!

Slash Happy Place (as Nivek suggested), Yes greats are two good examples!!!!!
