I'm a lib fan and would throw the T.Rice in there as a great all mt. stick. More free ride oriented than the TRS and probably geared more for your size than the Skunk Ape which is like a TRS for big dudes (wider waist).
I also rode and liked the Rossi Angus Amptek and OneMagTek.

No specific order, but these are boards that I have ridden that I have really liked as all around boards.
Lib tech trs c2btx
Neversummer SL (proto would probably be better for you but never rode it)
Here is a good deal on the 2011 arbor coda Arbor Coda Snowboard 2011
And I have a 2012 trs c2btx for sale if you are interested http://www.snowboardingforum.com/buy...btx-157-a.html
If you want a banana magic, I would wait a couple more months, thats when they usually drop in price.

I'd just like a quality board, which will hopefully last me a long time.
For now I have my old standby (and I do mean old), but would like to get rolling on getting sometime that fits me a little better.

|jcam1981||I went with 157 Lib Tech Skunk Ape! Great all around board.|

what is your budget?
Its tough to suggest a specific older board as what you find used or on ebay is a crapshoot.
Also if you wait a few months you will be able to get deals on this years models.

|onefutui2e||the k2 raygun seems like a solid do-everything-well-to-decent board based on reviews online, from shoppies, and from riding my friend's.|

not from a few years ago, but add the burton process 157 cm to your list.
It seems to do everything well.

All Mountain Board Suggestions
Once an intermediate rider. Moved away from the mountains but hope to make it out for a few outings per season. Would like to upgrade from the antique sticks I have been riding.
5'9" 165lbs. Really like the 157 size.
I do more freeriding than park tricks, especially now that I don't get out as much as I used too. I felt an all mountain board would be fine for going fast down blues and blacks, yet forgiving enough I can pick it up and ride after lengthy intervals between trips to the slope. (agree?)
So my question: Any good ideas for boards to look at? Something from a few years ago that I could pick up used would be nice too.
Appreciate the input.
