DrnknZag How about a Ride DH2? it's more of a mid-stiff(er) freestyle board, but it's a true twin and pops to the moon (from what I've heard). I've contemplated picking one up for my freestyle board over my NS SL (but that's a whole other story).

j3n5 A hybrid chamber directional twin like Burton Custom flying-V or Nitro Team Gullwing.

asavi4 T6 is an incredible board but fragile. after busting up my heel side hedge, i went for the 2011 lib tech dark series. seems to be a similar board, so i've been told. it's lib's stiffest board i think at 7.5/10. Trying it for the first time in vail this week. Will let you know. Seems like a beast

LvdT First board which came in my mind: Ride DH.

That's a camber board, but don't think you can't freestyle with cambered boards. 5 years ago, everybody did I still do, and for me it's perfect! It's just more stable, I hate the rocker boards...

Maybe you should look at Lib-Tech, they use C2 tech which is a combination of rocker-camber and they make some pretty stiff freestyle boards!

Good luck!

crazyface Bataleon Riot seems like it fits the bill. It's supposedly "scary fast" and I can attest to TBT being the real deal. This board is pretty stiff so you aren't going to be doing any jibbing with it, but it should work well with medium and large jumps.

If you are looking for something softer, I suggest the Bataleon Evil Twin. This is the board I am riding right now and I love it. I would best describe it as a park stick that can go just about anywhere on the mountain.

If you ride on the east coast or icy conditions, you might want to look at some boards by Never-Summer (the SL) or Lib Tech (TRS or T.Rice) as both of these brands utilise "wavy" edges to held with edge hold in hardpack or ice.

Both the Riot and Evil Twin are traditional camber with TBT to make them more playful and easier to ride.

ckang008 Lib tech Trice seems to best match

Chaos Theory CustomX 156 or 158?

Breckenridge Maybe a Rome Machine. I have an extra 157 I'll give ya cheap.

To answer your questions no your worry is legit haha some boards built especially for freestyle will definately be too much of a noodle to handle what you do. If it was me I would want RC because i like it a lot but I dont do all mountain stuff, but a stiff enough RC board in my opinion will hold up for all mountain and will definatley freestyle really well. I am not too familiar with Bataleon, but those may be a good option for you their normal camber but have tbt that and capita are definately worth looking into if you ask me. Good luck
Ultrafear? Really? That is barely above a noodle. Its a beefed up Horror. If you want to suggest CAPiTA for someone used to a T6 try the Cambered Indoor. You do have durability issues with CAPiTA. Some of them ride good yes, but they are built for park kids that kill boards. They're more inexpensive for a reason.

You do realize that is a shop kid only board...??? You can't buy just buy one.

For center rocker look into the Arbor Westmark for a twin and the Coda for a directional twin. If you want camber try the Ride DH, or a Flow Quantum, for some zero try the Nitro Rook. Alternate base Shape try a Bataleon Riot. For combo camber try the Signal Omni, Nitro Team Gullwing, or a Yes Optimistic.
