Big thanks Doc. Holliday, but I went for the Westmark because of financial reasons and the board seems exactly what I was looking for. I saved the page though for my friends who are interested in the NS.
The only question I have right now is whether I should go 153 or 156
I am 5.83 ft and 175 pounds.
This board will be my all mountain lover 70% with slight park 30%.
Afraid that the 156 will be slightly too big and not playful enough for me, after all I rode a 148cm JibStick with RETT system for the bigger part of the last season on icy All Mtn and Pow.

TRS is basically just a more stiff version of SB BTX.

I am not sure if this distinction will translate well: but, a lot of companies make "all mountain freestyle" boards, which in my opinion are all-mountain boards that have just enough versatility that you can enjoy riding them in the park, too. The Blacklist struck me as, kind of the "opposite", that is, a "freestyle all mountain" board. It's definitely a freestyle oriented board, but it's got enough versatility that you can take it just about anywhere outside the park, too.
So, if you ride hard in the park, or if you ride skate-style on the rest of the mountain, or if you do a little of everything, it's a solid choice.

|Doc. Holliday||Hey Ayukreizi, I'm suprised that you can't find never summers in Germeny. I live in Poland and here each NS model is pretty easy to find, so if you want it, maybe you can transport it to Germany. If so, i can give you contact to this distributor.|

yeah with a 9.5 boot the Westmark is going to be what you want instead of the Blacklist (which is just the wider version of the Westmark). It is a park board but assuming the Westmark rides similar to the Blacklist, it should be capable of handling almost anything you throw at it.

Hey David, I am a big fan of your and Leo's blog.
I was looked up the Omni and its 420€ in Germany. It's an okay price but at the same level as other high quality boards. Not sure if it's worth it.
I was also looking into Arbor Westmark/Blacklist.
I feel like the Blacklist would be too wide for me with my 9.5 32 Lashed boots and Rome 390 BOSS L/XL binding or am I mistaken?
The Westmark seems to be more of a park board.
Ugh... so many boards, so many choices...
Thanks Kung Martin, if I will go Libtech I will probably look into Skate Banana or TRS as it suits my style better.
I don't think I could settle for a pure freeride board. I enjoy jibs, butters and popping off anything way too much.
EDIT: After reading up on the Arbor Westmark, I am strongly leaning towards it. Sounds like an amazing board!

maybe this'll help you decide between the lib techs.
edit: oh, the TRS isn't in there. still though.
