For next yr i'll either get Assassin, Rossi Templar or Endeavor Select with Contact Pros or Genesis.

I already have the Endeavor Live 2014 which is similar, but stiffer (closer to Man's board or Travis Rice) and with more camber; i'll keep it for pow days. It's an aggressive beast! but prefers better conditions than what we had this crappy season.

So yeah OP... get Assassin + Genesis or Contact Pros... and live happily ever after.

F1EA Assassin.
That would sacrifice a bit of pure jib/flatland for all-aroundness (jumps, rails, speed, pow)

LightninSVT Someone already mentioned it but look at the Jones Twin or maybe a Ride Machete?

ridinbend If you want free ride and villain get the assassin.

Wozkhalifa Also now that I have more insight into what I'm realistically going to be doing, anyone know some solid bindings I could attached to a board like this that can allow me to enjoy the mix?

Wozkhalifa I was talking to some friends of mine and they had me realize, due to our location and my limited time in the rockies, a more park oriented board may be a better choice for me just so I don't get board (lol) of the handful of places I go. Sorry for the confusion earlier considering comparing those two boards I realize now is like comparing apples to oranges. So I guess what I'm asking now is the villains ability to handle pow and the more free ride options in more variable conditions like out west.

LightninSVT I picked up a Slayblade this year (13-14 model) with the new "lifted flatline" profile and I love it. I've only put 4-5 days on it but it is a super stable deck for bombing groomers and a little bit of the soft stuff. I stay out of the park other then hitting a few smaller jumps and it's fine for that. I don't really attempt rails or anything like that so I can't comment on it's versatility in the park. It's super stiff and feels like a traditional cambered board...

Wozkhalifa Thank you for clarifying. That helps a lot!

The Villain is all terrain jib. The Slayblade is backcountry freestyle or freeride.
