can anyone with experience with these or other boards chime in? i'm looking for a playful all mountain board that's not too stiff, so i can learn butters/presses and be able to transition to jibbin later on in my riding career.

for now i am leaning toward T.Rice
2013 Burton Custom Flying V is AMAZING!

It's an aggressive all mountain twin. I tried it for one run so I'm not the real person to listen to (and it was bigger than I was used to .. yeah that's what she said).

Arbor Coda
Smokin Superpark (which isn't as soft as the name implies everyone says ... I really would like to try this board one day). It has Magnetraction and smokin's bulletproof construction. I'd look into that one personally.

do not get a billy....it would be a waste on the East Coast terrain and the mag is perhaps not aggressive enough for ec ice. If smaller foot size is the issue get a rider's choice

IMO, the Heritage is more of a freeride board, and not as playful or forgiving as the Proto would be. I also believe it is a directional twin, similar to the SL.

Here is a decent run-down of some of the different NS boards:

Proto/SL sounds right up your alley if you're sticking with Never Summer.

Looking to butter and possibly jib later? Doesn't sound like the Trice would be the right board. Maybe the Riders Choice.

Arbor Coda but I'm not sure how well the full rocker arbors ride on the East coast. I've hit ice with mine before but I'm on edge until I can get out of there (and if it's the whole mountain I just go home). I've been on the Coda on something right next to ice and it was fine.
