Thanks for all the suggestions/input. I have heard nothing but good things about Bataleon and NS, so they made the list, and I love my Capita Ultrafear, so I put that on there as well.. Also basing my opinion off this a bit:
Alpine Lab Product Reviews: The Best Powder Boards | Snowboarder Magazine
Any gripes or different opinions on these boards?

Yes Pick Your Line. Been riding one this season in BC and love that thing for tight trees or critical lines, spines, chutes whatever you throw at it.
Had issues with the boards delaming on me but they are switching factory for next season so that shouldnt be a problem.
EDIT: Forgot to add. I tried the Salomon Powder Snake aswell and it was a realy floaty and fun board.
For big hits/drops it felt like it had a bit more board to land on then the PYL even though it was only 1cm longer.
But wasnt as quick on the technical stuff.

|JaneR||Sorry to do this..I know you had narrowed the field down..but..you really should look at the Jeremy Jones Flagship as well. I bought one last year and it is sensational on powder, in the back country and on the piste. The best board I have ever had.|

The CS is a great powder board, but if I was in the market for a budget powder stick, I'd look into the Salomon Powder Snake. I'm not sure it'd have quite the same float as the CS, but I think it would be a bit better in tight trees.
Don't get me wrong, I still rip my CS through the trees, but with it's flat camber profile, you're doing all the work. You gotta throw it around pretty hard. Not a big problem in CO's light powder, but in heavier, wetter snowpacks, you'd probably be working your ass off.

|walove||I have a 65 snowmullet and my buddy has a 65 charlie and the mullet just does everything better. Retails for 150 more though. The mullet turns great and quick in all snow, is fun to ollie and butter, and has more float thans the mullet. Too bad they don't make it anymore. I'm thinking about a birdman 180 if I can find a deal, if I can't find a used mullet. Four years of montana rocks have done it toll.|

Anyway I've lost weight and it seems a tad too big so thinking of splitting but probably sell it, pm if ur interested its has 12-15 half-days of Baker poo on it.|

|NWBoarder||The Charlie is the budget Pow board. It's a great ride for what you pay for it. And the 2013 only improves upon the previous models. I can't speak for the others cause I haven't ridden them. I can say that the TBT on the Bataleon is a love it or hate kind of deal. If you've never ridden it, then I would try to demo a board with it before deciding on it.|
