In regards to the review of the Antler on thegoodride.com, I'm not sure about that review. I was interested in that board too, so I looked at that immediately after they posted their new reviews a few weeks ago. What jumped out to me was that it is listed as "twin-ish" and that it has a "setback stance." Well, it IS a twin, but usually twin-ish means almost twin or twin-like in reference to non-centered boards. Hence the next comment of "setback stance." Well, its not setback. Burton's site doesn't say that (they say the opposite), and I've handled/examined the board in person at my local store and it definately is NOT setback.
I figured it was an error so I emailed the guy, but he stood behind the review as-is and said it definately was a setback which makes me think that on that particular board, he is confused.
I don't mean to beat up on him or his site, I actually like their site, but would only "trust" what they say if they post an "in-depth" review (look at tabs below the basic description/snowflake ratings) on the board/binding/etc. My guess is that they said the edge hold was not so good just because that is how they feel about all of Burton's Flying V shaped boards, and are expecting that to be the case. I've only read one review of the Antler and they really liked it and had no complaints about edgehold.

Make sure you ask them to sharpen the edges before you go. I found the edge hold lacking.
I also demoed the LT Dark Series and Travis Rice Pro the same week.
I bought the Travis Rice. Very solid and stable but easier to maneuver than the AMF imo.

OP...you really also need to name your mountain for the "best all mountain board"....
the best all mountain board for La Crescent Iowa will be different than whistler and different for utah.
I suggest a bit of observation and inquiry at the mtn that you ride at.....only observe and interview the local core riders...not the gapers. I'm sure that you will discover there is a common theme. Riders' styles and skill are a product of the mountain...therefore certain designs will take advantage of the mountain.

|jchaison||Those Prior boards are sexy! Pricey, though. Will have to demo next time I'm at Whistler.|

|sh767||I've heard that t.rice is a stiffer version of trs. So trs won't give you the massive stability wherever you go, but once it's broken in, it'll be soft enough to butter and jib but stiff enough to hit the groomers.|

|leo13||Thanks lamps yeah I think urban right. My concern with the antler is its stability at speed and if Burton have improved their frost bite tech.|
